Cincinnati is a city in the state of Ohio and seat of Hamilton County in
the US. This riverside city along the Licking River was an economic
powerhouse during the 19th century and its significance was
equal to that of San Francisco and Los Angeles at that time. Cincinnati
offers picture-perfect scenery because it is in a wide basin on the north
bank of the Ohio River and is surrounded by hills, thus attracting
nicknames like ‘Pearl of the West’ and ‘Queen City.’ Cincinnati is home to
several cultural attractions like museums and historic music auditoriums,
but one can also use it as a leaching pad to appreciate its vast sports,
entertainment, and culinary identity.
