Living in Cincinnati
Welcome to the city of Cincinnati, America’s first boomtown! Sprouting up practically overnight during the 19th century, Cincinnati remains Ohio’s most populous city and one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country.
Sometimes considered the first All-American city, inland-based Cincy boasts a large and diverse cultural heritage. You can see the influence of different cultures and eras in American history as you walk down streets lined with a variety of beautiful and remarkable architecture.
Get a taste of what the Queen City has to offer residents and visitors when you explore the historic downtown or join in one of the many family-friendly festivals. Cincinnati also offers plenty of entertainment options, from educational museums to recreational amusement parks. In fact, this respected college city has enough music, arts, theater and other cultural venues to keep everybody busy all year long, even during the colder winter months.
Don’t confine yourself to the city, however. Despite having a largely urban cityscape, Cincinnati is also home to one of the widest and best-regarded park systems in the United States. With over 100 parks and green spaces, the Queen City does an excellent job showcasing the state of Ohio’s natural beauty.
Those looking at Cincinnati from a worker’s perspective are also in luck. Cincy fares well nationally with several Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies headquartered in the metropolitan region, including Procter & Gamble, Macy’s Inc., Fifth Third Bank, Great American Insurance, Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America and others.
