Cincinnati is one of America's most venerable river cities. More than 2 million people live in the Tristate hub of Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana.
Cincinnati residents are drawn by a diverse economy that includes a growing biomedical industry, outstanding airline service and an extraordinary quality of life.
The area's ethnic diversity is reflected in taste-tempting restaurants and inspiring houses of worship.
The respected Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra performs in Music Hall, a treasure on the National Register of Historic Places. Each summer brings the best in rock, alternative, gospel and symphonic music to Riverbend Music Center on the banks of the Ohio River.
Every July, the city sizzles with the sounds of the Jazz Festival and Queen City Blues Fest. Playhouse in the Park is one of the country's major regional theaters. The University of Cincinnati's College Conservatory of Music dims the house lights for operas, concerts and recitals nearly every night of the year.
The popular Broadway Series at the Aronoff Center for the Performing Arts brings the best of the Big Apple to the Queen City of the West. Cincinnati Ballet offers a strong repertoire, and the Cincinnati Opera stages four grand operas each summer. The Cincinnati Art Museum traces more than 5,000 years of visual arts, while downtown's Contemporary Arts Center showcases the latest works.
The city's sense of fun often spills into the streets, with Oktoberfest, Black Family Reunion, A Taste of Cincinnati and Riverfest taking over downtown Cincinnati. The river, too, lures fun-seekers with sightseeing cruises, water sports and floating restaurants.
Opening day for the Cincinnati Reds, the first professional baseball team, is unofficially acknowledged as Cincinnati's national holiday. The Cincinnati Bengals, AFC victors in 1981 and 1988, host games in Paul Brown Stadium.
The University of Cincinnati Bearcats, with a proud basketball tradition, play in the Big East Conference. The cross-town Xavier Musketeers are national contenders in the Atlantic 10 Conference.
With the Ohio River as her threshold, Cincinnati has a natural grace that extends to one of the nation's largest urban park systems. Golfers can choose from more than 90 public and private courses, and thrill-seekers need only head north to the roller coasters at Kings Island.
The acclaimed Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, next to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, brings endangered and exotic species to the Midwest. The Newport Aquarium demystifies the exotic worlds of water creatures at its home on the Ohio River's Northern Kentucky shore.
