Destination of the Day: Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati, OH

Destination 7 in the series "Fourth and Goal"

Home of the Cincinnati Bengals (3-11-0). Opened on 19 August 2000, seating 65,790.  Named after John Brown who is credited with founding two professional football teams, it is one of the few stadiums not named after a corporation or brand. Replacing the dual major sports stadium Cinergy Field/Riverfront Stadium, Paul Brown Stadium also sits right on the Ohio River in the southwest corner of downtown Cincinnati.  The football stadium also has the unique distinction of appearing on Harris Interactive's "America's favorite 150 buildings and structures".  Also nearby is the Underground Railroad museum.
