Otherwise known as 'Queens City', Cincinnati was first settled in 1788. It is situated to the north of the Ohio river and many of the cultural influences within the city have stemmed from the German settlements here during the 19th century.
If you're on the lookout for a bite to eat, expect to find dishes which reflect the area’s German heritage. A whole range of restaurants serve traditional schnitzels and two annual festivals take place per year known as Oktoberfest and Bockfest, with their focus on traditional German foods and ales.
The city is currently undergoing many new redevelopments which will introduce new retail opportunities, restaurants and apartments. The renovation of Fountain Square and the newly built Queen City Square are now highly popular spots with tourists.
What to do in Cincinnati
Cincinnati is a fun destination for all of the family with something for everyone—you'll never be able to say there's nothing to do, that's for sure!
Fountain Square has its very own calendar of festivals and events throughout the year and has become the heart of the downtown region of the city. It’s packed with restaurants, shops and even an ice rink to keep everyone entertained. Kids will also love a trip to Cincinnati zoo—the second oldest zoo in the USA.
The city has over 100 parks, making it one of the best regions for public open space in the country. Ideal for picnicking and taking a slow-paced walk, you're bound to come across some of the lush green areas which are just perfect for a spot of calm amongst the hustle and bustle.
Top travel tips for Cincinnati
Getting around the city couldn't be easier, with transport links including the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority (SORTA) and the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK, to you and me). Both are run by buses, but there is also a local streetcar line which was newly opened in September 2016. This line will provide drop offs at all the major attractions and is perhaps a better route than those provided by buses. However, the Metro 1 bus is also an option you can catch which will drop you off at the majority of the important sights within the city.
