I'm a native, deeply-rooted Cincinnatian (though long since happily relocated.) Lexington and Louisville are in my life because important people from it are living there.

Each place has its pluses and minuses, in my book. My vote falls within the third-place ranks, LOL..."yes" to Lexington! It has a sprawl problem just like the other two cities', but it hasn't gotten as much out of control. The Wildcats keep things lively if sports are your thing - and their teams do a damn sight better than the Reds or Bengals. UK also is a good source of "culture," although of course the museums of the cities to its west and north are far superior. (Who spends much of their life touring roomfuls of art, anyway?) Red River Gorge and the Smokies are a short drive away for hiking and camping. I call Lexington "the northernmost Southern city" for the laid-back, friendly atmosphere that abounds there. And it'd be a far better place to raise kids than Loovull or Cincy.

Cincinnati just has more. Aesthetically, the Italianate architecture combined with the hills and the river are a plus for Cincinnati. There is also the factor of major league sports to consider.

I couldn't vote. I've always heard Lexington was beautiful but have never been there. I've been to Louisville a few times and spent most of those visits crawling up and down the very cool strip of Bardstown Rd. That one area is outstanding but the rest of Louisville I observed seemed kind of nasty and run down... kinda like a giant version of Chillicothe, Ohio.

I didn't vote, either. It would be pointless. Louisville has a charm Cincinnati doesn't have, but I can't explain exactly what I mean by that. Yet I'd rather live in Cincinnati than Louisville anyway.

Lexington I have no opinion of. It's just kinda there ... on the way to Myrtle Beach.

Can you try? I'm curious, because both cities developed early and for the same reasons... except one has hills and the other doesn't.

Is "none of the above" an option?

Daytonnatian, you are one of the few people that I know that "hate" on Cincinnati just to hate that is from Dayton? Why is that? What happened to you as a result of the Cincinnati?

This is so strange to me. I'm being honest here. Usually everyone I met is the complete opposite. Keep in mind, I'm not talking about people that are suburbanites just because they think every city is "dangerous."


I've noticed this pattern from your past comments, I don't want you to think that is was from this thread.
