Cincinnati

4.6

The Queen of the West

Situated on the north bank of the Ohio River, Cincinnati distinguished itself as the only U.S. city that left a favorable impression on one of its most famous 19th-century visitors, English author Charles Dickens. His holiday here inspired him to call it a "cheerful, thriving, and animated" place, and the metropolis has remained that way for most of its history. One of the country's earliest boomtowns, the city supports one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in America and contains one of the largest collections of Italianate architecture in the world (the architecture is even listed on the National Register of Historic Places). Distinct among U.S. cities, Cincinnati boasts a culture and attractions blending elements of the Northeast, Old South, Midwest, and Appalachia.

Where to stay in Cincinnati

To take advantage of the best cultural attractions available in Cincinnati, stay at a hotel downtown.
