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.

I absolutely love Cincinnati. I've lived here my entire life, and I'm constantly finding new things to do. From Reds games, to Bengals games, to now FC Cincinnati games, there is never a dull moment in sports. The city is also always making renovations and improvements. The downtown in particular is booming with new business! We also offer many great universities to study , such as University of Cincinnati and Xavier University.Its just a great place to live.
I honestly used to despise Cincinnati, I wanted out ASAP! It wasn't until I was living on my own, and had a nannying job that I truly explored all it had to offer. The parks, the restaurants, the buildings and architecture- I fell in love with it all. Now I currently work for the City of Cincinnati and I've fallen in love with it more. Cincinnati is the perfect place to raise kids, grow up, party, dine, go to college- whatever stage of life you're in Cincinnati can adhere to you.
