If location is everything, then Cincinnati could not be in a better position. Located on a bend in the Ohio River, Cincinnati is a hidden jewel in the Midwest just waiting to be discovered. Rich in history and tradition, Cincinnati offers all the allure of a larger metropolis while maintaining its charm and small-town character. Cincinnati is a bustling hub, centrally located to other Midwest cities, like Chicago and Louisville − both within driving distance. Residents are often drawn by a diverse economy that includes a growing biomedical industry and the nine Fortune 500 companies who are headquartered here. Residents often stay here after discovering all that Cincinnati has to offer. We are often asked, “Why Cincinnati?” Our response is, “Why not Cincinnati?”
Graeter’s ice cream has been a well-loved Queen City tradition since the first ice cream parlor opened nearly 140 years ago. Graeter’s makes pastries and other sweet treats, but it is their ice cream that is the real highlight – it’s frozen deliciousness! Good barbeque does not always have to come from Texas. Montgomery Inn has been serving up the best barbeque this side of the Mississippi for well over 50 years. It’s not a very well-kept secret though because celebrities and US presidents have enjoyed the Inn’s special barbeque. Stop in to thrill your palate – and become part of the Inn Crowd. Skyline Chili is famous because it is exactly what other chili is not – it is not chili con carne and it does not have a bean and tomato base. We cannot tell you exactly what it is though because the precise ingredients are a family recipe kept secret by the descendants of a Greek immigrant, Nicholas Lambrinides, who started the business in 1949.
Originally built as a train station, Union Terminal now houses three separate museums: the Cincinnati History Museum, the Children's Museum, and the Museum of Natural History and Science. Located in Eden Park, the Krohn Conservatory is home to more than 3,500 plant species from around the world − principle collections include a Bonsai Collection, Desert Garden and an Orchid Display. Every spring, thousands of butterflies are let loose in a special themed garden during the annual Butterfly Show. As you might guess from the name, Riverbend Music Center is Cincinnati's main music and event center. The outdoor amphitheater was originally built for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, but it has welcomed musical guests from all genres, including Jimmy Buffett, Aerosmith, Coldplay, Linkin Park, Ingrid Michaelson, Uncle Kracker, and any number of other artists.
