Cincinnati: A Great Place to Live, Work & Enjoy Life
Downtown Cincinnati has been Western & Southern's home since we were founded here in 1888. With that background, it is no surprise that our commitment to and enthusiasm for our city and the surrounding region runs deep. Located on the banks of the Ohio River, Cincinnati offers an affordable cost of living, top-notch schools and a wide range of entertainment – from great shopping and dining to world-class sports and the arts.
Living & Working in Cincinnati
Home of Ohio's largest economy, Cincinnati topped Smart Assets.com's 2017 list of the best cities for new college grads and was listed on Forbes' 2016 best cities lists for both young and mid-career professionals. No wonder our key industries range from advanced manufacturing, bio health and food and flavoring to information technology and back-office support.
Greater Cincinnati offers a broad selection of living choices as well. Our region spans three states and 15 counties. More than 300,000 of our residents live across the Ohio River in northern Kentucky, and with southeastern Indiana also within commuting distance, we refer to ourselves as the "Tristate." If you want to own a home in Cincinnati, you are in luck. Realtor.com named Cincinnati one of the "trendiest cities that you can still afford to buy in" in 2016. With so many choices, you are sure to find a place you feel at home!
Entertainment in Cincinnati
Are you looking for major museums or small gallery openings? Opera, music theater or ballet? The latest dance music or a symphony orchestra? You will find all them in downtown Cincinnati. Our historic music venue, Music Hall, recently reopened after a $135 million renovation, and the surrounding arts and entertainment district – studded with breweries, restaurants and bars – is becoming more vibrant every day.
The excitement here has been noticed. Cincinnati ranked in the top 10 on WalletHub's lists of "Best Cities for Recreation," "'Most Fun' Cities" and "'Best Foodie' Cities" in 2016. Insider tapped us as one of the "10 Best Beer Cities in the US" in 2017 - not surprising since we host the largest Oktoberfest in the United States.
And don't forget sports. They are part of our DNA!
