One reason to consider living in Cincinnati, or at least, visiting the area is the eclectic selection of eateries. Locals from the area are familiar with and likely grew up on Cincinnati favorites including Montgomery Inn, Skyline Chili, Graeter’s, and LaRosa’s. In the past decade, the Cincinnati food scene has grown exponentially and really made a name for itself. Downtown Cincinnati features a wide array of good eats hotspots including Taste of Belgium, A Tavola, The Eagle, Sotto, Nada, Senate, The Precinct, and Mt. Adams Bar & Grill, just to name a few. The list goes on and new eateries are popping up all the time. If a person craves good food in Ohio, come to Cincinnati.
Another draw to the area is the Arts scene. People might be thinking, “Cincinnati has an Arts scene?” The answer to that question might surprise many people. Yes, indeed, it does. Cincinnati boasts a rather impressive theater community including a Broadway Series of productions, shows at the Playhouse in the Park (Mt. Adams), the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company on Race Street, and dozens of community theaters throughout the city. In addition to the diverse theater options, the Cincinnati Ballet recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. The Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestra is considered one of the best in the country. The Cincinnati Art Museum is delightful and offers free admission. The Taft Museum of Art is one of the finest small art museums in the U.S. Moreover, Cincinnati also has the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, which is becoming world-renowned and drawing tourists to the area. Furthermore, Cincinnati even has its own opera.
Families and animal lovers might be drawn to the area, thanks to the Cincinnati Zoo, which is the second oldest zoo in the U.S. In addition to the animals and plant life on display, the zoo hosts many events throughout the year, such as the Festival of Lights every holiday season. Another plus for Cincinnati residents with children and/or families is that the zoo is located very close to downtown. Furthermore, another draw for residents, tourists, and families interested in aquatic life is the Newport Aquarium, which is located just across the river.
Of course, when mentioning big draws to the city and reasons to consider real estate in Cincinnati, one of the prime attractions cannot be overlooked–Sports. After all, Cincinnati is home to the oldest professional baseball team (Cincinnati Reds) since 1869, the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals (1967), a minor league professional hockey team (the Cincinnati Cyclones), two major college athletic programs, and a professional tennis tour stop.
Strictly for the adult crowd, one last draw to the Cincinnati area lies in its brewery industry. The truth is the local brewery scene is alive and well in Cincinnati. The city is well-known for its beer-making roots and breweries, such as Fifty West, Listermann, Mt. Carmel, MadTree, Rhinegeist, and Rivertown, are forging ahead with its brewing future.
