at the Loop — the $80 million, 80,000-square-foot entertainment and
apartment complex adjacent to University of Cincinnati— has been slowly

action figures? Now those toys are a hot commodity, especially for

site called CompleteSet around the idea of “He who dies with the most
of people visit the Cincinnati Zoo every year to see lions, tigers and
bears, but now they can further their environmental education through

travel season, which means May to September is ripe for taking road
trips. Instead of stopping at prosaic chain restaurants advertised along
the interstate, let the Cincinnati-based startup Roadtrippers.com plan
your ultimate expedition.
