As one of the oldest cities in the United States west of the Appalachians, Cincinnati offers residents the chance to see history every day in their neighborhoods, their offices or their daily commute. Just because it's historical doesn't mean it's old, however, as this city is one of the youngest in the nation due to the number of students, professionals, artists and musicians who come to the southwest corner of Ohio to live and work. College and professional sports are wildly popular, with the Bearcats, the Reds, and the Bengals enjoying huge fan bases in their hometown. The annual Oktoberfest is one of the biggest celebrations of its kind outside of Munich, drawing thousands to the streets to celebrate the city’s German heritage (and party like there’s no tomorrow, of course).

The thriving local economy is anchored by the corporate headquarters for numerous major companies, particularly the stalwart Proctor & Gamble; this combined with the low cost of living (including a wealth of affordable apartments, condos, and rental houses) and the expanding job market makes Cincinnati one of the most attractive cities in America for folks looking to get ahead in life.

You can find plenty of great options for buying everything from clothes to books to exotic meals in the Queen City. Across the river from downtown lies Newport on the Levee, where dozens of stores compete with a movie theater, comedy club, arcade and aquarium for the attention (and dollars) of shoppers. If you want to cast aside your usual grocery shopping routine, drive up to Jungle Jims to see all the foods of the world in one place: a shopping center that's the size of a mall, filled with sights like live fish pulled from river and ocean, meats imported from Africa and Asia, a room devoted to hot sauces, and a wine cellar that has bottles retailing for as much as $5000.


With a large contingent of new restaurants popping up each year in the Queen City, there's always a new restaurant on everyone's tongue. No matter where you go, however, there's the fiercest debate about the best chili site. You can try the fast-food chili restaurants for a quick fix, but for a real city delicacy try Pleasant Ridge Chili, largely considered the finest in the entire city. Those who want more meat in their diet can swing by Terry's Turf Club for some of the biggest and best hamburgers in the tri-state area, including the monster filet mignon burger. Finally, try the city's specialty pork dish, goetta, a sausage with oats and spices.
