Just east of Cincinnati, Mariemont was created as one of the first planned communities in the United States. As soon as you cross into the quaint village's borders you know you're somewhere special. Gorgeous tree-lined streets shelter Tudor style homes as if an English country village has come to life out of a Jane Austen novel. The heart of the neighborhood, Mariemount Square, features the historic Mariemont Inn as well as one of the first Graeter’s ice cream stores and the artsy Mariemont movie theatre. Nestled within the the square sits a treasure trove of unique gift shops, specialty stores and restaurants, including The Quarter Bistro and dilly cafe, which also houses one of the area's finest wine shops. If you have more of a beer bent, Fifty West Brewing company—part of Cincinnati's fast-growing craft brew scene—can help quench your thirst.
