Cincinnati Tourism

Third largest city of Ohio, United States, standing strong along the bank of River Ohio and street running up to Mt Adams, Cincinnati is popularly known as “Queen City” or “Queen of the West”.

This is because, it has multicultural atmosphere, i.e. mixing of Northeast, old South, Midwest and Appalachia combining with German-Catholic heritage. This city is also considered as the center of art, commerce, tourist attractions and entertainment.

Though the center of the city is a concrete jungle, travelling to the Downtown region gives a picturesque view of the hills that acts as a perfect backdrop for Cincinnati.

You can explore the whole city by walking. However, if you wish to travel beyond Mt Adams, you need to hire a car from Cincinnati.

For the food lovers, Cincinnati is a heaven as it has around 4000 restaurants.
