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 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.
Cincinnati is a very fruitful and diverse city, however Cincinnati Public Schools are terrible but its neighboring districts provide many opportunities. There is something to do for everyone in Cincy. Other than schools, my biggest complaint is that you can never depend on the weather for stability! You'll get all four seasons in a week.

P.S. Marvin Lewis still hasn't left the Bengals and so we're embarrassed by our football team. It's okay, because FC Cincinnati is the bomb diggity.
