Cincinnati's original airport. Located about 5 miles east of downtown, it now primarily is used for general aviation and corporate jets.

Per their web page, the longest runway is 6,100 feet long, and can handle aircraft up to 135,000 pounds.

The terminal is an old art deco building that dates back to right around World War II. There is a restaurant there, and a few flight schools. An annual air show is hosted at Lunken.

A bike path circles the airport proper and a playfield/golf course at the northern end. Cyclists can experience, at at least two points, the sense of a LearJet taking off right over them.

A bonus treat: a park overlooks the airfield--you can actually look down on the planes taking off and landing, which is quite neat. You can also watch planes that tow banners pick up the banners by diving down, snatching them, then pulling up sharply.
