I’ve never been to Cincinnati, but your photos & description make me want to change that! It’s ok to be biased about a city you’ve lived in! Boston is home for me & will always be my favorite city!

Oh Boston is another great historical walking city!

I’ve only driven through Cincinnati and enjoyed the gloriousness that is Skyline Chili and buckeyes. Now, though, I’m pretty sure that I need to plan a visit. You’ve made me fall a little in love with your town!

I haven’t had Skyline since I was a kid, but yes, it’s a staple of Cincinnati. I’m glad you could fall in love with it too.

Clifton looks the most retro and interesting to me. I must say I not regret not going to Cincy when I was in Lexington a while back. Had the opportunity but didn’t know if it would be worth the drive. Next time though. The gothic architecture at the Cemetery is pretty interesting too.

I hope you do get to visit Cincy and Clifton one day, Raghav. You were so close!

I never thought I’ll say this about a cemetery, but it looks n just gorgeous! Very serene in the lap of nature. Love the lights, absolutely gorgeous. It might be because of the very fact that it’s not touristy!

Thank you, Bhushavali.

It’s amazing! Love photos, if lived in America it would want to visit. Findlay Market and the Smale Riverfront Park would on my list to see

Hi Michaela! I hope you do visit. Thanks for reading.

Cincinnati is definitely underrated! I have travelled through many times on the way to Florida and have had little time to explore. I am a big baseball fan and would love to catch a Reds game sometime. The wall pools look spectacular. I definitely need to take a day or two to explore the next time I am in the area.

Cool. Glad to know I’m not alone in my love for Cincinnati!

Incredible photos!! You’re so right that it is a city that is never seen on any travel websites and that’s why it’s a perfect reason to go visit! We haven’t been, but after this article it’s on the list. I adore your love letter to your hometown, it’s so sweet and very nice to read. Thank you for sharing!

Thanks so much.

I never knew cicinati had such wonderful history and unique buildings. Though really you had me sold at worlds best ice cream!! Who doesn’t love ice cream?

Hi Jean. Thanks for your comment!

I’ve never been to Cincy, but this post makes me want to go! Your photography is stunning.

Awesome. Glad to share my hometown with you, Shani.

The night pics are awesome! Which camera have you used? Also, did you use a tripod?
I think I am going to give the cemetery a skip … they always spook me out!

It might be difficult for you to believe but actually I had not heard of CINCINNATI until I read your post. The place really looks very promising. And as usual your pictures are perfect

No, I’m not surprised. Cincinnati doesn’t get a ton of press. Thanks for reading, Neha!

I have been to Cincinnati and love it too. I totally agree that most travelers would enjoy it and be surprised by how much it has to offer. There’s a lot of free and fun community events all the time like public concerts and festivals. One of our favorites was called Salsa on the Square, at Fountain Square. Every thursday a salsa band plays a free concert, professional dancers give a lesson, the community (from toddlers to hipsters to granny) dance salsa, and the music plays for hours. And that’s just a thursday night.

Yay. I’m glad to find a fellow Cincy lover! Salsa on the Square sounds cool. I didn’t know about it!

Some places sure entice and ensnare you with their charm and make you fall head over heels in love with them. This happens all the time when we travel. The gems of Cincinnation do fall in this category. I find Mt. Adams, especially endearing.

Thank you, Vyjay!

First of all…..STUNNING pictures. I love the sound of Mt. Adams and those fountains at night just look magical. It seems like a place where you are never have to rush around.

Thank you so much, Ami.

Jessica you do such an amazing job with your pictures. Read in your bio that you are a film maker so no doubt about it. There is an old world charm to this place which I absolutely loved.

Such a nice comment. Thank you!

You have certainly caught the beauty and charm of this “big, little city”. I spent the first 14 years of my life there. Shillito’s at Christmas, Burnett Woods in the fall, Coney Island on the river at night, Skyline chili. The smell of German food and music from beer gardens. Not to mention the lovely views and architecture all over Cincy. Thanks for these great pictures to stir the desire to go back for a visit.

Awesome. Glad to find a fellow Cincy-lover, Shirley.

I am still amazed after reading this. I moved to Cincinnati in May for a job after 30 years in Colorado. I left the job after 3 weeks as it wasn’t a good fit. I stayed here in Cincinnati because I have absolutely fallen in love with it!! Everyone laughs that I didn’t head back to Colorado…..I post pictures ALLLLLLLLL the time of my adventures in Cincinnati….It is such an amazing city. I am living in Clifton Heights, right by UC campus. All of your places are my favorites as well. Am 55 years old and am waitressing at Taste of Belgium at the Banks. I am having the time of my life!!!!! Thank you so incredibly much for this. ?☺

Hey Collette. That is awesome! I just tried the chicken and waffles at Taste of Belgium. Yum. Glad you’re enjoying the city so much.

Hi Collette, You’re amazing! Thanks so much for your comment. Nice to connect with you over a shared love of Cincy.

No love for Northside?

Hi Clem. Just haven’t experienced Northside… yet!

Hi Clem. Just haven’t experienced Northside… yet!

Please do; The Comet, Northside Tavern, & Northside Yacht Club are highly recommended! 🙂

Hi !! Thanks for your article !! I will soon move to Cincinnati, I will work in Erlanger. Do you recommand a place to leave not so far from it ?
Mount Adams seems so nice but I guess it is difficult to find accomodation there.
Thanks 🙂

Hi Maud. How exciting! I haven’t lived in Cincinnati since I was young, but I enjoyed growing up in Clifton.

Can you recommend a place to stay? Thanks!

Hi Tracy. Thanks for reading! I wish I could recommend a place to stay, but I always stay with friends. They probably wouldn’t like if I refer people to their place. 🙂

My daughter and I are going to Cincinnati at the end of February for five days; she will be interviewing for a spot in the PhD Neuro Psych program at the University of Cincinnati. Which area do you recommend we stay? When she’s not interviewing, we’d like to be able to check out the city. We love walking around and checking out cool shops and local eateries without having to get in the car, like we must do in So Cal. We’re originally from Spain, so we love late nights. 😉

Hi Mia. Congrats on your daughter’s accomplishments! I don’t live in Cincy so I asked a local friend for hotel recs. Here’s what she said:

I think a popular one I know a lot of ppl choose is The Cincinnatian. It’s historic. I think they may be in process of renovating but that’s one ppl seem to love.

Another one is the Hilton Netherland Plaza—it’s in Carew tower which is a neat French Art Deco style building. It’s pretty cool and has one of the top restaurants inside.

The Hilton Netherland Plaza is pretty as well.

21C hotel is a newer one. I believe it is in the same building as the contemporary art museum. I hear positive things about that one too.

Those are all downtown. Downtown is small you know so anything down there is going to be fairly convenient to OTR, and the banks (the two main happening spots).

Hope that helps! Enjoy my former hometown!
