Vote for which city you prefer the most.

If you care, you can explain your choice for most favorite city of the three. You may even list why you like or dislike any of them. Consider variables such as, for example, people/friendliness, arts/culture, traffic, urban vibrancy, "things to do."

I prefer Cincinnati myself...and I live smack dab b/t Louisville and Lexington, so go figure.

I've posted this in the Kentucky forum, also. Of course, the votes will be biased depending on which forum it is. Nonetheless, I'm interested in people's opinions, and I won't chime in w/ my opinions of the cities right now.

Nothing wrong with being interested in people's opinions. Just warning you to hold on for the wild ride ahead. There will be some negative opinions offered, no doubt.....and there are some cutthroats in these forums who will blast anyone offering a negative opinion about their particular favorite out of those three.

Cincinnati gets my vote. The urban vibe is what does it for me.

Lets see,

Louisville - growing city, currently one of the biggest cities with people moving to it's downtown, lots of construction, great for singles, families, one of the safest cities in the US, great state/metro economy.

Cincinnati - took decades to figure out "yes or no" to a new tower, high crime rate, dirty (OTR, west side, etc), it's here in the destroyed economy state of Ohio.

You tell me.

Wow! 7-3-1.

I think Cincy is an underrated city myself. If only Cincy can lower its crime rate and, therefore, lift its image of being "crime ridden", it can get on the fast track on becoming the premier city b/t Atlanta and Toronto. I think it's beginning to wake up and see its potential.

As an aside, Cincy's corporate limits and Louisville's urban service area (old city limits) are approximately the same size. When comparing these urban areas, we find that Louisville actually has a higher murder and crime rate than Cincinnati! (Remember, Louisville and Jefferson Co. merged in 2003, so where the entire county is now the "city" it tends to skew the crime rate.)

OK, voted for Louisville, mainly becuase its my adopted hometown. But I do like the way the city has parks and parkways integrated into the neighborhoods, just some good planning there.

The place has a sort of hip, modern vibe going on which is difficult to pinpoint but it certainly is in the air. Louisville always had this quirky funkyness, but it seems to be getting more developed or presnet int the recent past.
