Visually, they appear to be very similar cities with their hilly topography, rowhomes, located on rivers, size, population. What differentiates these two cities and which offers a better overall living experience?

This advantage would matter the most to me being a diehard hockey fan.

Pittsburgh is significantly hiller, has alot more rowhomes neighborhoods, larger city and urban feel. It also is a northern city.

Cincy is a northern city with southern influences.

Now are you just saying this because you live in Pittsburgh?? I'm looking for 100% unbiased opinions here.

Pittsburgh is literally all hill. This drone video seems to document the landscape pretty well.

Pittsburgh seems to have a bigger art and literature scene than Cincinnati. Pittsburgh seems to be doing a little better economically, though Cincy has their share of Fortune 500 companies. More of a Southern flavor to Cincinnati and industrial feel to Pittsburgh. I wouldn't say Pittsburgh has more of an "urban feel" though, because Cincinnati has its share of row homes and housing stock in general is quite dense.

Cincinnati gets far better weather than we do. They get very little snow and more sun.

Pittsburgh is 2 hrs from the closest city, Cleveland. Cincy benefits from being midway between Louisville, Indianapolis, and Columbus. There is a lot more to do in the Cincy area.

Cincy has a better food culture.

Cincy has a cheaper COL.

Pittsburgh is closer to the mountains.

I agree with bluecarebear's assessments and would offer up the broader definition of more Sunbelt-like (Cincinnati) versus Rust Belt-like (Pittsburgh). Cincinnati has more in common with Kentucky than it does Ohio so while some may say Ohio and Pennsylvania are similar, Cincinnati doesn't really feel as "Ohio" to begin with when comparing to other cities in the state.
