The" James A. Ramage Civil War Museum" in Fort Wright informs visitors about the defence of Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati. Both public and private golf courses, pools and tennis courts are easily accessible to Ft. Wright residents.
There are several parks and memorials in Fort Wright. "Battery Hooper Park" is the place where Civil War enactments are hosted. Veterans’ Memorial, The "Garden for the Blind" is located next to Fort Wright City Hall and features plants at counter height along a concrete wall so people who are wheelchair bound can enjoy them.
