Summertime Cincy is in full swing. The days are long, the temps are high, and there is no shortage of outdoor activities. As a Cincinnati-centric online health and wellness publication, we are constantly on the lookout for activities to share with our followers to help motivate and give them access to special, free, or low-cost, health-focused events in the community. We curated a list of ongoing opportunities to get moving this summer and enjoy the great outdoors. Get your calendars out!
