Eh, I don't like those list type things. The Cincinnati area offers certain amenities at an extremely reasonable housing cost. For me, those amenities include access to music and the arts, terrain which I consider appealing, and a nice park system. It's also where I grew up, and since I have no living relatives other than a couple of cousins out west, it provides my only sense of personal history and rootedness.

1. Quirky, interesting and eclectic neighborhoods in a large metro area
2. Unique layout/stunning architecture/beautiful topography
3. Elite arts and historic arts venues
4. Pro sports/major college sports
5. Location at the confluence of the Midwest, East and South - All four seasons and within a day's drive or less of NYC, DC, Cleveland, Philly, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Atlanta, St. Louis, Memphis, Baltimore, Milwaukee and all points in between

For a city its size, there's an awful lot to do in and around Cincinnati. And it's affordable.

I like your 5 reasons. To me they say a lot about Cincinnati. I am glad my great-grandparents immigrated here to settle and I have stayed here. My kids who have moved out of the area are only hoping for the day when their circumstances can bring them back. For all we can argue about the current and future of Cincinnati, the area is still a great place to live.

That is good to hear, and it accurately described me about a year ago and it likely describes a lot of people from Cincinnati that are scattered around the country.

And I think we all know what we need to bring them back: Jobs, jobs and more jobs.

That's why I left.

1. Good place to raise a family

2. Affordable housing, groceries, etc.

3. Great schools - public and private, elementary - grad school

4. One of the best library systems and park systems in the country

5. Safe, I never felt uneasy when walking alone

Worst thing about Cincinnati - the weather - too many gray, cold days for me

Skyline Chili...

Cincinnati is a great place to live, really.
I love all the local squares with their little shops and eateries.

Whats interested however, is that Cincinnatis population growth rate was higher than the national average and the unemployment rate is under the national average. It actually does a little bit better on these stats than Chicago.

It may not be the economic dynamo like certain areas of the country but the diverse corporations in Cincinnati do give it a fair amount of economic stability.
