Discover William Howard Taft National Historic Site

Cincinnati, the economic and cultural hub of the Cincinnati metro area, is the largest metropolitan area in Ohio. The city is popular among art buffs motorhome camping across Ohio due to its stunning historic architecture. Next time you’re camping with an RV rental near Cincinnati, be sure to pass by the William Howard Taft National Historic Site. Situated just a mile north of downtown Cincinnati, the site preserves the two-story Greek Revival house that was the birthplace and childhood home of William Howard Taft, the 27th president of the United States. Should you not own an RV, don't worry. Book an RV in Hamilton County and take your time exploring ‘The Queen of the West.’

Did you know that William Howard Taft was also the tenth chief justice of the United States? That makes him the only statesman to have held both offices in the history of the United States. Located at 2038 Auburn Ave, the William Howard Taft National Historic Site comprises two buildings. The first is the original home owned by William’s parents. The second is a National Historic Site's Visitor Center, where visitors can get to learn more about the former president. Some more attractions in the area include the Cincinnati Art Museum and the Krohn Conservatory. Rent a camper near William Howard Taft National Historic Site to visit even more attractions further away from the city.

Getting Outdoors

When it comes to outdoor activities, Cincinnati has you covered with a variety of parks in and around the city. The International Friendship Park is a narrow green space by the Ohio River. The park is quiet and low-key, making it perfect for an early morning jog with your dog or just a solo contemplative walk.

If the park seems too small to enjoy some biking, you’ll be glad to know that the park is adjacent to the Ohio River Trail. The Ohio River Trail is a 4.6 mile long, moderately trafficked multi-use trail that is open year-round. The out-and-back trail runs right alongside the river and links several urban riverfront parks.

When camping in an RV rental near William Howard Taft National Historic Site, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden is ideal for some family time if the kids tagged along. In 2019, a reader's choice ranking of the country’s top zoos by USA Today saw the museum come out on top as the best zoo in the United States. At the museum, you’ll see about 500 animals and more than 3000 species of plants.

It’s not only the zoo in Cincinnati that’s old. Opened in 1881, the Cincinnati Art Museum is one of the oldest art museums in the country.

If the kids tagged along, a visit to the Duke Energy Children's Museum is worthwhile. The museum features a wide range of displays and hands-on exhibits designed to spark up your child’s creativity. Don’t worry if your kids are younger, as there are two exhibition areas created primarily for preschool-aged children and younger.

Should you still have some time, don’t leave the city before enjoying a stroll across the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, a bridge that links Cincinnati to Covington, KY.
