Cincinnati: at one point, it was the largest inland city in the country, the first of the 'boom towns.' Today, it is still a major metropolis and a wonderful place to live. Before you take the plunge, there are a few things you should know about Cin City. Here’s what to expect.
Cincinnati is a large city with dozens of distinct neighborhoods that range from the urban core's high-end lofts to the sprawling former condos in Riverside and the professional-centric megapartments in the outlying suburbs. Cincinnati apartments come in almost every conceivable variety, each of which caters to a specific audience.
If you are moving to Cincinnati and you do not already have a job, there are dozens of major employers in the area that might be a good fit for you. The Kroger line of grocery stores, Proctor & Gamble, GE's Aviation branch, and Macy's are all headquartered in the Queen City. If you're more of a public sector or non-profit type, the University of Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Children's Health Medical Center employ more than 25,000 people between them.
If you do already have your employment lined up, you may be wondering what Cincinnati has in store for you in terms of entertainment and lifestyle. If you are looking for art and music, Cincinnati has it in spades. The Cincinnati Music Hall, the Cincinnati Art Museum, and the Museum Center at Union Terminal are just the beginning. To take in some history and culture, the Underground Railroad Freedom Center and the William Howard Taft Historical Site may be more to your liking.
For fun in Cincinnati that is much more casual, you might find yourself enjoying the American Sign Museum, the Coney Island Amusement Park, or even Full Throttle Indoor Karting. Nightlife is plentiful here too, with The Velvet Red Room, The Mad Frog, and The Comet among scores of clubs and dance halls.
There is a lot to love about living, working, and having fun in Cincinnati. Get ready to explore, and enjoy your new home!
