I moved here about six years ago, and since then I have enjoyed so much about this city! Compared to North Carolina and Oregon, the real estate market is amazing and growing fast. Houses are affordable and worth it for sure because they usually are restored from historical buildings. There is always something to do from Findlay Market everyday to celebrations in Washington Park. Cincinnati is growing and developing into the next Portland, with a Tram and public transport as well as up and coming areas. A wonderful place to grow a family.

I this there is so much to do in Cincinnati. I attended the University of Cincinnati, the campus is beautiful. I now attend nursing school at The Christ College of Nursing, which is an amazing opportunity for myself. My weeks and filled with working and school and I get so time to let loose on the weekends. Cincinnati has had so much growth over the years. We have so many new and developing areas. Over the Rhine is just an example of a developing area. There is just an endless number of possible things to do here. I have lived here for 22 years of my life and I wouldn't change it for anything!
I love Cincinnati! I have lived here since I was born. I go to school in Dayton, Ohio and I always talk up Cincinnati and feel connected to any non-Cincinnati resident who likes Skyline! Something I would like to see change about Cincinnati is, honestly, the streets! There are so many potholes and when the construction workers go to fix them, they take a very long time. Of course, it is not an overnight job, but commuting around the city gets difficult when the streets are filled with potholes and lots of roads are closed.
