Hey, InLuvWitFlo-

I moved here about a year ago and I love it, too! Great place to live and work.

As far as happy hour, I enjoy all the bars in Hyde Park, Mt. Lookout, Mt. Adams, and a few of those downtown. In the summer I love to sit outside at Tellers or Arthurs (both Hyde Park) and have a few drinks, or go to half-price wine night at Indigo (Wed....and also Hyde Park). Hyde Park is FULL of 20-somethings, and so is Mt. Lookout. Millions and MLT in Mt. Lookout often have happy hour specials, as well.

Mt. Adams is nice for the views and a few of the bars are cool. My personal favorite is AliveOne...the music on the jukebox is great, and Tuesdays are $2 beer night. The crowd is also young and the rest of the neighborhood is full of great bars and restaurants, so if you don't like one, try another.

Good luck!

Skyline Chili - have a 3 way (chili, spaghetti, and cheese), 4 way (onions added), or 5 way (add beans) - it's weird chili, but a local favorite

Graeter's Ice Cream - any flavor, but those featuring chips are amazing

Loveland Bike Trail - a great way to spend the day biking or walking

Montgomery Inn - terrific ribs

Newport on the Levee - nightlife

Sharon Woods, Winton Woods, and the Hamilton County Parks - lovely

Kenwood Towne Centre - one of the top ten malls in the country

Cincinnati's museums - great

Hyde Park Square and Mariemont - charming

This is a great place - except for the weather.
Thanks Sunnydee, skyline is delicious, I love Winton Wood's trail and I'm looking forward to Newport on the levee this weekend. I'll be sure to work my way down the list.

Thanks again everyone!!!

I lived in metro Cincinnati for five weeks in 2003. Highland Heights, KY to be exact. Where I lived was on the top of a hill where I could look at the Cincinnati skyline. How luminous and colorful it is at night!

Anyway, I enjoyed my time in the Cincy area. Thoroughly. So much, in fact, that I've toyed w/ the thought of moving back there over the last five years (but I really love Texas and that really beckons me.) I participated in a summer program at N. Ky. Univ. and met many people from the NKY area. I found the people of the area easy to befriend, so helpful with tips on ways to enjoy the area. In fact, I made more friends there in five weeks than in any other area of Kentucky in 17 years combined up to that point! (No joke!)

As for those tips, many of which I heeded (in bold), here they are:
  • Newport on the Levee and Aquarium--overrated and overpriced, I'll admit, but with bustling family-friendly nightlife and good eateries;
  • Covington's MainStrasse, a historic district with some bars and what not that 20-somethings frequent;
  • Devou Park, Covington, best to go in the day, though;
  • Eden Park, Krohn Conservatory, and the Cincinnati Art Museum, all next to each other. Eden Park is one of the most beautiful parks I've been to. The many passers-by in the park were friendly, nodding their heads and asking me how my day was, putting to rest the myth of "cold, unfriendly folks in a 'big bad city'." C.A.M. is free, also;
  • Jungle Jim's in Fairfield, four acres of exotic and unique foods and spices from dozens of different countries and cultures;
  • Contemporary Art Center;
  • Music Center, home of the incredible Cincinnati Opera, which I highly recommend for your listening pleasure;
  • Fountain Square;
  • Carew Tower, although unfortunately I didn't get to do the observation deck, but the front lobby artwork and architecture reminds me of that of the Empire State Building;
  • Great American Ballpark, home of the Cincinnati Reds. I got to do an architectural tour of the entire park, also.
Mt. Adams, Mt. Lookout, Clifton, Hyde Park and parts of Covington's Mainstrasse area are all fairly safe places that 20-somethings gravitate towards.

I don't profess to be an expert on Cincy, b/c Lord knows I'm far from it. It's just that now that all the memories are coming back to me, it's time to revisit those. The Cincy/NKY I remember is full of wonderful people and enough parks, culture, and sports to keep you entertained for a good long while; I hope it's still the same.
