High Above the Ohio

Save to my Account

A tiny town on the Ohio River with several must stops.

The Overlook Restaurant sits perched high above the Ohio River with an astounding view and wonderful down home cooking such as biscuits, mashed potatoes and fried chicken. Or relax and enjoy a drink and a view at Walter’s Bar, downstairs below the restaurant. Also be sure to check the Overlook Dock, a great place during warm weather to enjoy a meal right at the river’s edge.

Just across the street is the 19th century Leavenworth Inn, first opened in the late 1800s, also with stupendous views of the slow moving river as well as tennis courts and bikes for riding on the country roads.

Pick up beauty supplies at Dagmar’s Goat Milk Handmade & Natural Bath and Body Products, pick up nostalgic candies, ice cream and other goodies at Stephenson’s General Store, collectibles at O.U.R. Antiques and peruse artisan offerings at Town Hall Gallery.

Boaters can put their craft in at the boat launch below The Overlook.

Nearby is the recently re-opened Wyandotte Caves.
