Here’s a commercial for overpriced headphones featuring tennis superstar Serena Williams. It ran prior to the U.S. Open and the tennis footage is from NYC, but the running scenes were shot in Cincinnati.



Here’s Serena running in Eden Park, one of the many free city parks that have earned Cincinnati kudos from outdoor buffs and penny-pinchers alike.

Here she’s on the steps that lead to Holy Cross/Immaculata Church in Mt. Adams (photo is fuzzy because the video is fuzzy at that point). Every Good Friday, thousands gather here to ‘pray the steps‘ – a tradition for more than 150 years.

And finally she reaches the summit, with a great view of the downtown Cincinnati skyline.

Nice workout, Serena. Now for a similar view and a refreshing adult beverage, try the patio at City View Tavern.
