Cincinnati has a lot of uniqueness to it.
No, InLondon knows jack about Ohio. He/she is just jealous of what Ohio has to offer. Its quite ammusing reading their comments 24/7 bashing Ohio.

Cincinnati without a doubt, followed by Lexington and as a last resort Louisville. Cincy has so much growth right now, OTR revitalization, the Banks, the new casino, Great American Tower, Streetcars, and fountain square. More people are moving downtown too which is making it more of a 24hr city with new restaurants and stores popping up all over. Cincy also gets to share in NKY's history and the attractions in Covington, Newport.... Sports alone too makes Cincy the winner, Bengals, Reds, Cyclones, Bearcats, Musketeers.... As far as Lexington its a nice town but too small. Basically a giant suburb with a few tall buildings. But they do have the Wildcats so that should count. Louisville just sucks. Nasty city, boring design, no life downtown, and that weird county/city government sham to make it seem like a real city. No sports or entertainment and too many right wing conservative nut jobs in KY.

^ Agree with everything you've posted except for the county/city government. I think it's time we merge and eliminate a lot of issues that we currently face.

It was funny (well, not funny - scary actually) ... Last night I was driving home on 275 (from Eastgate area) and I was basically driving on 2 inches of icy snow in a car with rear-wheel drive going 20-50 miles and hour ... one slight jerk of the wheel and I'm history ... as soon as I get to city limits, it's just as if it had rained from the salt that prepped the roads ... my mind was at peace. What if there were a universal goverment? The smaller towns cannot afford to put salt on their roads, it's a shame actually.

Cincinnati needs to think more regionally.

If we can get some positive growth continuing and we already know, our metros are blurred and will continue to blur more ... we'll be in good shape. Building our metroplex!

If Cincinnati fails, Dayton will feel it ... If Dayton fails, we'll feel it. Regardless each city needs to do its own part. So, as a Dayton fan you don't want Cincy to struggle.

Also, you have to keep in mind there will always be that who's-who scenario ... Minne/St. Paul, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Chicago/Milwaukee, Sacramento/SanFran, LA/Anaheim, even Philly and NYC. Those cities are always overshadowed by their "big brother" per se, but they're doing just fine (except for Ft. Worth though ).
Just so you know, I officially voted for Cincy today

It's been a long year, and being a stupid high schooler (still!!!), I think Ive done a fair amount of maturing in my attitude towards Cin-Day (or Daytonnati ). That, and the economy's ridiculous effect on Ohio has given me a new outlook on growth and progress in general.........

Yeah, I guess your right Cincy-Rise as far as merging governments. I'm not against it I just don't like how bigger cities like Cincinnati are ranked lower because its only 78 sq miles (or so) compared to Louisville who includes most or all of Jefferson county (however that works.) It would make economic sense for smaller cities such as Norwood, St Bernard, Elmwood Place, Cheviot, North College Hill.... to merge with Cincinnati. Services would likely be improved and money saved, Cincy could also get more federal money since so much is based on population.

I know in NKY police dispatches have been merging along with police and fire services. I guess my outlook is if your city is so small it can't provide basic services on its own and has to contract out to others, you don't need to exist.

I personally always looked at Dayton and Cincinnati being a part of eachother. I mean, the name of the cities says it all- the "gem city" is north of the "queen city" because as said in older poetry the "gem sits on her crown." Historically, as well, the city of Dayton was founded by people from Cincinnati and they literally worked as twin cities. Now, the census takers are considering calling us the "Cincinnati-Dayton Metropolitan Statistical Area". I mean, there's only about ten minutes of drving between the southern parts of Dayton's suburbs and the northern parts of Cincinnati's suburbs. And isn't there even a Cinday Road??? Perhaps we're more connected rather than divided the way people say. Just some thoughts to think about.

My vote goes to Cincinnati because it was historically the first big modern city in the midwest and it has better history than the other cities. I've heard that Louisville is strangely set up, too. Though I can't be 100% on that. But I like Cincinnati and I think it has an exceptionally beautiful skyline, too. One that hopefully will boom in the next decade with all the plans in place. I think it should work more cohesivally with Dayton, though while maintaining both of the citie's very different identities. Cincinnati being a city where major world corporations are based, having international ties, and being a architecturally more historically-tied town. Dayton being a more innovative, creative research center for aerospace and government related affiliations with Wright Patt, and having a more modern downtown.

I LOVE living in Ohio. We're thriving here and nothing could make us move. Now, having said that, I still think I would've loved either of the three choices had we settled there instead. I deliver to both Cincinnati and Louisville daily and like both cities equally. I'm less familiar with Lexington but like what I've seen of it. I'll give it somewhat less of a score not being on the Ohio River, but the scenic horse farms are nice, too. Guess this isn't a ringing endorsement for any of the three. But I honestly can't choose between Cincinnati & Louisville...

....I've heard that Louisville is strangely set up, too.

It's laid out using the generic US street grid, like Cincinnati, Dayton, Lexington, Indianapolis, and every other city in this part of the US.

You've "heard it was strangely set up..."? There is this thing called a "map"....
