  • Discover Cincinnati.

    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 often called the "Queen City of the West" after Henry Wadsworth Longfellow cemented the nickname in his poem, Catawba Wine. It is no wonder when you consider the many cultural offerings Cincinnati provides, from the Krohn Conservatory to the Museum Center at Union Terminal to the Playhouse in the Park. The area's ethnic diversity is reflected in taste-tempting restaurants and inspiring houses of worship.

    Cincinnati is a bustling hub, centrally located to other Midwest cities, like Chicago and Louisville - both within driving distance. Residents are often drawn here 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?” Take a look for yourself at what Cincinnati has to offer by taking a virtual tour of the Queen City via an interactive map created by a local design firm.
