Bustling Cincinnati, nicknamed the ‘Queens City’, is rich in heritage and provides the perfect base from which to explore Ohio and the surrounding states of Kentucky and Indiana

Cincinnati’s summers are hot and humid and its winters are mild, making it ideal to visit at any time of year. We recommend visiting in late September, when the city marks its German heritage with America’s largest Oktoberfest celebrations. Make sure you don’t miss the ‘Running of the Wieners’ – best enjoyed with a beer and bratwurst in hand.

Of course, it’s not just about the beer. Cincinnati is famed for its impressive collection of historic architecture and up and coming gourmet restaurant scene. Sports fans flock to the city to catch the Cincinnati Masters and little ones will enjoy visiting the Cincinnati Zoo, rated one of the best in the US. The ‘Over-The-Rhine’ district is the perfect mix of historic and hip – head here for shopping, cocktails, and a tasty treat (or two) from Holtman’s Donuts.

Having recently undergone extensive regeneration, Cincinnati gives a warm welcome to everyone and anyone who stops by. It doesn’t matter whether you’re visiting for business or pleasure; Cincinnati is certainly the glittering jewel in Ohio’s crown.
