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!
