Cincinnati Lights: 120 Seconds in My Beloved Hometown

Jessica Peterson

Night view of Roebling Bridge in Cincinnati, Ohio

Cincinnati is one of the most underrated destinations in the U.S. It doesn’t make travel mag best-of lists. It doesn’t get featured in films. It doesn’t have mainstream celebrity chefs. And that is exactly why you should visit.

The Queen City is an architecture-lovers playground. The Roebling Suspension Bridge was the prototype for the Brooklyn Bridge. As a kid, I used to splash around Serpentine Wall pools — long before the bright lights and colorful fountains of Smale Riverfront Park illuminated downtown.
