DOWNTIME

Cincinnati offers a wealth of entertainment and dining options that include - museums and galleries, music and theatre, fine dining, amusement parks, festivals, sports, parks and a thriving river front entertainment district.


Renowned for its world-class arts and culture, amusements, sports, and recreational offerings, the vibrant city of Cincinnati features all the conveniences of a large bustling metropolis while maintaining a friendly, small-town atmosphere.

Located on the north bank of the Ohio River, Cincinnati is the third largest city in Ohio and was named one of the top three U.S. travel destinations for 2012 by the Lonely Planet travel guide. Cincinnati is unique amongst other Midwestern cities—its culture blends the Old South, Midwest, Northeast, and Appalachia with a strong German-Catholic heritage. In the 19th-Century it became one of the first boomtowns in the United States, and its historic Over-the-Rhine neighborhood today stands as the largest National Historic District in the country. 

The city boasts a rich riverboat heritage that dates to the days when large steam- and paddle-wheel-driven boats transported pork products to much of western Ohio. The city celebrates this tradition every four years with the Tall Stacks Festival—an arts, music, and heritage festival that transforms the riverfront into a mass of color, with boats of all shapes and sizes on the river banks. Another legendary Cincinnati tradition is baseball. The Cincinnati Reds were the first professional baseball team in the United States. Opening Day is always a home game for the Reds, held at the Great American Ball Park.

Cincinnati has some large-scale revitalization projects, such as the Great American Ball Park and Paul Brown Stadium, the reconstruction of Fountain Square, the construction of the Banks neighborhood, which includes many entertainment options and housing, and the beginnings of restoration of Over-The-Rhine through the "Gateway Quarter."

The city’s skyline is breathtaking—especially at night—when viewed from Devou Park in northern Kentucky, Mount Echo in Price Hill, or Eden Park and neighboring Mt. Adams. Picturesque foothills surround downtown Cincinnati and add a beautiful backdrop to the Queen City.

Cincinnati has a thriving local industrial economy and is home to many major international corporations including General Electric, Procter and Gamble, Fifth Third Bank, Kroger, Federated Department Stores, and the American Financial Group. Nine Fortune 500 companies and 15 Fortune 1000 companies are headquartered in the Cincinnati area.
