Cincinnati, Ohio

I have sometimes wondered about how it would be like to temporarily live in Ohio. It is filled with diverse settings, ranging from cornfields to small suburbs to metropolitan

cities. One place that I would love to visit in particular would be Cincinnati, which is one of the most well-known places in the world. One of the reason as to why I’m so intrigued is due to the beautiful structures and scenic views that it offers. In addition, there are numerous events as well as trip ideas that I am more than willing to experience.



I know that although there are numerous opportunities and activities that Cincinnati

offers, it is also known for its dangerous neighborhoods. For instance, District 4 has been known for its high rate of violent crimes and robberies. This may turn off many people as it may not be a family-friendly place to visit after all, however, there are only as few as four trouble-spots out of 52 neighborhoods that are prolific in crime.


I also know that Cincinnati is notorious for its extremely hot and

humid weather especially in the summer. With temperature exceeding well over 90 degrees during the summertime, living here may feel like you are on the edge of the equator. However, if you live in southern areas like me, you may already be predisposed to humid weather and it may not bother you as much.


But I can’t figure out how Cincinnati is still an interesting place to visit to me. Maybe it’s because there are too many exciting things to do there that I am enthusiastic to try, which makes it very easy to overlook

the cons. For instance, there are countless activities to try for free if you are on a budget, such as visiting nature preserves and museums. In addition, there are countless attractions for those who can afford to spend money. Some of these include shopping centers, tours, and performing arts.


Even so, I will always put Cincinnati as one of my most recommended locations to visit. This could also be a kid and family-friendly place to travel to, as there are several family-fun attractions to offer such as BB Riverboats and aquariums. For safety concerns, dangerous neighborhoods that were previously mentioned can simply be avoided. All in all, if you are looking to spend some time in a place that will take your mind off of stress or other work that you may have waiting back at home, then Cincinnati is the perfect place for you to unwind and have some fun!
