Cincinnati is at the heart of a thriving midwestern region which encompasses 13 counties in
Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana. It is a scenic metropolitan area located
on seven hills along the banks of the Ohio River. Cincinnati is known for diverse neighborhoods,
wooded suburbs, rolling green hills, affordable housing, and excellent schools.

The city takes pride in its internationally acclaimed
Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, ballet, opera, art
museums and theater, (the Broadway Series at the Aronoff
Center, Playhouse in the Park, college and community
theater groups). King’s Island, 20 miles north of Cincinnati,
is one of the top theme parks in the U.S. with rides such as
The Beast, Son of Beast and the new fastest and meanest
roller coaster ever, Diamondback. The city is surrounded by
many fine parks, woods and lakes. Each year on Labor Day
weekend, an end of summer fireworks display takes place
from barges on the Ohio River. This is the largest and most
spectacular yearly fireworks event in the United States.
Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is a weekend celebration that
virtually takes over the downtown squares of Cincinnati.
Other annual celebrations include A Taste of Cincinnati,
Chili Fest, and the Ohio Renaissance Festival. Professional
and collegiate sports abound, including the Cincinnati Reds,
Cincinnati Bengals, Cincinnati Cyclones hockey,
Cincinnati Bearcats and Xavier Musketeers. The
Cincinnati Zoo is one of the world’s major zoological
gardens and displays many endangered and exotic species.
The downtown Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky river fronts
offer a wide range of recreational and family activities, retail
and office space, restaurants and nightlife, as well as plenty
of green space. Paul Brown Stadium (Bengals), the Great
American Ballpark (Reds), Newport on the Levee,
Newport Aquarium, Music, Arts and Heritage Festival, the
National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and
Bicentennial Commons at Sawyer Point are just some of                    images courtesy of
the attractions found on both sides of the Ohio River.             Greater Cincinnati Convention
