Overview of Cincinnati
So you think you want to live in Cincinnati? Join the growing club! This metropolis set along the Ohio River is ranked as one of the best places in America to raise a family. It's also among our nation's most affordable cities. Cincinnati apartments and rentals are known for their historic architecture and for their proximity to an exemplary system of parks. It may not be as sexy a city as New York, or as hip as San Francisco here, but Cincinnati is a place you can put down roots. If you're looking to live happily long-term, Cincy might be for you.
Living in Cincinnati
Settled in 1788, Cincinnati was the first city in the U.S. heartland to rival its big brothers on the coasts-just without as many European immigrants. Some call it the first purely American city for this reason. Cincinnati grew up along the river, prospering with Miami and Erie Canal steamboats and shipping. As the 1800s came to a close, and river traffic gave way to railroads, the city saw its premiere position usurped by Chicago. Cincinnati got its name from the Society of the Cincinnati, honoring George Washington. Our first president was considered a "Cincinnatus," i.e. akin to the role model Roman famer who, when called, led Rome.
If you're new to town, you can get oriented in Fountain Square, the center of the city. Grab yourself a bowl of famous Cincinnati chili and check out some of the other exceptional neighborhoods. Over-the-Rhine claims the largest collection of Italianate architecture in the world. Mount Adams matches winding streets with eclectic shops and eateries for a European feel. Indian Hill has been claimed by the well to do. There you'll find 1920s mansions, luxury cars, and practically nothing but single-family homes. For a more everyday sort of Cincinnati, visit Delhi Township or West Chester.
Work & Study in Cincinnati
If you've come to Cincinnati to study, you'll have a few good options. The University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati State, and Xavier University are all located within the city. If you include the greater metropolitan area, you'll also want to look at Miami University and Northern Kentucky University. When you're done with classes, you're in luck: CNN rated Cincy 4th in its list of cities for new graduates in 2009.
For those who want to find work in Cincinnati, there's also good news. Many major companies base their operations here, including Procter & Gamble, The Kroger Company, and Macy's Inc. Cincinnati's economy depends on both large firms like these, and the thousands of medium and small-sized operations that keep local money changing hands.
Cost of Living in Cincinnati
Cincinnati is an exceptionally affordable city, and that may be a large part of its appeal for you. The average two-bedroom apartment in Cincinnati rents for just $759 a month. While vacancy rates in the city used to be sky-high, they've been falling to earthbound levels of late. That means the Cincinnati secret may have become more widely known. If you find an apartment in Cincinnati you like, don't delay in renting it.
Cincinnati Attractions & Entertainment
Cincinnati isn't a trend-setting city, but it is a place where culture comes calling and where you won't struggle to find an evening's entertainment. The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the Opera, the Boychoir, and the Ballet all put on an excellent show. Cincinnati Museum Center has a whole wing just for the kids. Families will also adore the Cincinnati Zoo.
If you want to cheer on the home team, the Cincinnati Reds and the Cincinnati Bengals carry the professional sports banners for the city. It's said that there are so many parks here, that every resident in this city lives within a mile of one. For some old school shopping, Findlay Market is the oldest continuously operating market in Ohio.
Cincinnati Special Events
To make the most of the seasons in Cincinnati, you'll want to keep an eye open for the city's special events. Highlights include the Cincinnati Masters tennis tournament, the Flying Pig Marathon, the Ohio Valley Jazz Festival, and the Thanksgiving Day race. There's also Bockfest, the MidPoint Music Festival, and the Cincinnati Fringe Festival to look forward to.
