    Are you sure that you want to move to an old, distressed, northern city like Cincinnatiicon_question.gif It could be quite the culture shock since you have been living in a growing, prosperous city located in one of the fastest growing states in the nation.

    Cincinnati is one of the cities that actually made great gains during the recent economic troubles. We've redeveloped our "banks", the area right on the river where our 3 stadiums are. We have fantastic restaurants, and mid-western charm. It isn't fast paced or "wild", and the gay community is somewhat ho-hum, but we have Nashville, Atlanta, Chicago, Columbus, and Indianapolis all within driving distance. 4 hours, 6 hours, 6 hours, 2 hours, and 2 nours respectively. We also have a thriving arts community (orchestra, ballet, off-broadway shows) and amazing architecture. The University of Cincinnati also ranks in the top 10 of architecturally amazing campuses and was recently named to have the best Rec Center in the country. UC also has some world ranked programs in design, vocal performance, engineering, and business. Cincinnati isn't going to "reach out and grab you", we're much too reserved for that. There are always things going on, but you have to get out and explore.

    The US Census ranks Cincinnati as one of the fastest declining cities in the US. If anyone is the fool on here it is you. Cincinnati's population has been declining for the past 50 years as people have moved first to its suburbs than later to other parts of the US. Forbes has zero credibility when it comes to ranking cities. That is why I don't pay any attention to that publication anymore.

    I really don't think you know what you're talking about. I live here. The place is booming. Oh well, have fun up in blizzard land where the people are socially awkward.
    Your city is still declining you brainless moron. The Census does not lie. Just because you have a booming CBD doesn't necessarily mean that your whole city is a success story. Buffalo is not blizzard land so stop showing your ignorance. I know what I am talking about. Cincinnati is going to become like Dayton, Cleveland, St Louis, and my hometown. It is shrinking in population and has serious urban problems. There has been no growth in Cincinnati. Columbus is the fast growing, prosperous city that left your town in the dust a long time ago. Plus Cincy is very conservative and quite religious which doesn't exactly help its cause with the younger generations of today. The OP should seriously consider relocating to Columbus instead of your shrinking, declining city.

    Our downtown is very compact, so most things are within walking distance. From the city center, within 20 minutes you can to our stadiums, Music Hall, our new Casino, our Broadway Theatre (The Aronoff), parks, the Modern Art Museum, etc.

    If you're looking for a big, wild city, Cincinnati isn't it. We have cool things and lots to do, but it doesn't really get wild here. It is very socially conservative, but like the rest of the country that is changing. We have openly gay councilmembers. Our politics are pretty "quiet". As long as you don't make a fuss, people are generally ok with things. We also don't have a public transportation system, besides buses. We are putting in a street car in a few years, but other than that, you either walk, take a taxi, or drive.
