Preview Three Fabulous Houses on the OTR Holiday Home Tour

There's a reason an entire TV channel dedicated to exploring homes around the world exists. It's a popular subject with a seemingly infinite amount of interesting stuff to enjoy. For many, the ability to step into the homes of others to see how they live will always hold some sort of innate appeal they don't fully understand. It's fine to feel this way; we're in that boat(house) with them.

So when the OTR Holiday Home Tour offered us the chance to tour the stylish abodes of over 15 homeowners in Over-the-Rhine, of course we wanted to learn more. We spend so much time living, playing, and shopping in the neighborhood, why wouldn't we want to see more of it?

This isn't a private tour, either. Anyone can buy a ticket and see these places for themselves. Here are the details you need to know:

You + friends and/or family (or, perhaps, complete strangers who seem fun)

The OTR Holiday Home Tour benefitting Future Leaders OTR, a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to assisting youth in OTR achieve higher education goals. Attendees get to see inside over 15 OTR residences, on-the-market homes, and future dwellings that are still under construction—all at their own pace.

Saturday, December 8, 2018 from noon to 5:00 PM.

NOTE: December 8th is one of the days the Cincinnati Bell Connector is free to ride!

The self-guided tour begins at the new Sam Adams Taproom at 1727 Logan Street in (you guessed it) Over-the-Rhine. There, attendees will receive a printed map with information about where to go. Ticket-holders will also be contacted via email the night before about downloading a smart phone app with an interactive map that shows detailed information about each place.

Because it's fun to see inside neat homes that aren't yours in person instead of just on TV. Also, it's a good date idea if you're looking for something to do with your significant other.
