    Chicago and Atlanta are 7 hours away driving. Is Cincinati that bad?


    Yea, I was thinking Chicago and ATL are a little too far, but Louisville, Nashville, Columbus, and Indianapolis are good getaways


    It's been awhile since I was in the Queen City. There was a lot going on down on Pete Rose Way. (2nd avenue). The Dock is one I remember. [/quote]

    They actually built that area up even more, and it's really nice and happening, but they are all straight bars except for the Dock, which is a little out of the way. I actually love the straight bars/clubs in Cincinnati, it's just the gay ones leave a lot to be desired.

    Actually, after thinking about it, your best bet might be Masque if you can make it to Dayton. But it's been about 2 years since I've been there, so idk what it's like now

[/quote]I doubt that Louisville will offer anything in terms of a vibrant gay scene as well as any urban vibrancy. Nashville is a bit far of a drive. Columbus and Indianapolis are your best bets if Cincy doesn't have quite enough what you are looking for. I am still very hopeful that Cincy has greatly improved since I was last there 20 some odd years ago because that city has a lot of tremendous potential. Again one thing I really liked about Cincy is that it didn't make the horrendous mistake of allowing urban renewal projects to run roughshod all over the city.

    Louisville has a pretty decent gay night life.

    I respectfully disagree with you about Louisville. It has a nice urban feel, and a decent gay scene.

    The gay section of Cincy is called Dayton. I hear they don't allow straight people in.

    Are you jokingly refering to the large city of Dayton which is to the north of Cincinnati on I-75 and I-70icon_question.gif
