1-Cincinnati is big enough to have the amenities of big city life, but it's little enough to have a small town feel.

2-Fountain Square - It's the Downtown heart of the city. There's always something going on there, even in the dead of winter.

3- Great Cincinnati Museums: The Museum Center (Children's Museum, Natural History Museum, Historical Society, Omnimax), The Taft Museum of Art, The Cincinnati Art Museum, The Contemporary Art Center

4- Acoustically perfect Music Hall: The Opera, The Symphony Orchestra (with Louis Langree'), The Ballet

5- The Cincinnati Reds: Opening Day is always fabulous!

6 -The Cincinnati Bengals: "Who-Dey" We love them because they keep on trying.

7- Cincinnati Parks: within the city their are 5 regional parks, 70 neighborhood parks, 34 nature preserves, green spaces everywhere and a series of cool parks on the riverfront.

8- Colleges and Universities: University of Cincinnati, Xavier, Mt. St. Joseph, Cincinnati State and a ton of commercial colleges

9- The Ohio River: Like the old folk song says, "Something's always happening on the river." It's true. There's Riverfest, the annual WEBN fireworks and lots of other Ohio river-adjacent festivals every year.

10- You can walk to Kentucky: If you get tired of Cincinnati, all you have to do is walk across the Purple People Bridge or drive across the "Big Mac" or any of the other bridges spanning the Ohio River, and you'll find whatever you need in Covington or Newport Kentucky and beyond.

My Top 10 Reasons on Why Cincinnati is a Great Place to Live:

10. Active social media community. Voted Most Social City by Mashable in 2011.
9. Vibrant arts scene.
8. Home to the first professional baseball team, the Cincinnati Reds.
7. Home to world-class education at the University of Cincinnati (originator of cooperative education).
6. Birthplace of William Howard Taft, the only man to be both US President and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. His birthplace in Cincinnati is also our official National Park. (I think it's totally cool that we actually have National Park rangers.)
5. Great museums covering art, history, nostalgia, civil rights, and more.
4. World-class music from the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Cincinnati Pops.
3. Birthplace of many famous people. If they weren't born here, they probably lived here. (Doris Day, Steven Spielberg, Sarah Jessica Parker, Roger Staubach, Jerry Springer, Roy Rogers, Neil Armstrong, and so many more.)
2. Big city amenities with a small town feel. Everyone may not know your name, but they probably know someone who does.
1. There's always something to do in Cincinnati.
