Cincinnati Overview

One of the most well-known cities in the United States, long considered to be the first American boomtown in the heart of the country, Cincinnati has a history as one of the first major inland cities in the country. Many individuals consider this to be the first true American city, due to the fact that it lacked the European influences of the East Coast with its continual influx of immigrants. These days it is home to several major sports teams, with a rich American history that has been colored over the years by a large number of events. The Reds have been involved in several of those events. This is the perfect place to catch a baseball game, ride a paddle-wheel boat down the Ohio River, or just explore some of the cultural and historical history that has built the city into what it is today.

Initially founded in 1788, Cincinnati rapidly transformed in the mid 19th century into one of the most important cities in the nation, known by many as the Queen of the West. Over the years it has continued to expand, and these days it is home to a wide variety of major American corporations. It has a distinctly multi-cultured background, which can be explored in the variety of festivals which occur throughout the year, ranging from their own version of Oktoberfest—the largest of its kind in the United States—to the Tall Stacks festival celebrating the city’s riverboat history or the Taste of Cincinnati festival. The city is famous for its particular brand of chili, and the music and arts scene here is particularly large-scale. There are two major league teams, six minor-league teams, and five college sports teams, which boils down to one thing: Cincinnatians love their sports.

For an all-around all-American city where everything from the founding history to the modern day goings-on are related to American culture, there's no better place to experience the United States than in Cincinnati.
