Cincinnati is a city of contradictions. The Queen City (as it’s often called) has a unique spirit that matches Germanic Midwestern roots with Southern flair, small-town loyalty with cosmopolitan arts and amenities, and a river-view skyline with inland rent prices.
Just over the river, Newport, Kentucky is home to some of the best nightlife in the region, while the ultra-trendy Over-the-Rhine neighborhood—formerly one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the U.S., by some reports—is now jampacked with breweries, music venues, wineries, and great restaurants.
