Hey, different strokes for different folks.

I lived in Louisville, KY for nine months and Highland Heights, KY (practically Cincinnati, and visited the city often) for only five weeks.

It took me two weeks to fall in love w/ Cincinnati and even make new friends.

It took one month for a cashier to even say "thank you" to me in Louisville, and about another two months to even make a good acquaintance.

Cincinnati has one of the world's largest plethoras of arts, culture, and history. Mt. Adams, Hyde Park, OTR (East), Hyde Park, Clifton, and Norwood are all -neighborhoods worth taking in. The Cincy Art Museum, Contemporary Art Museum, Union Terminal, Krohn Conservatory, Cincinnati Observatory, etc. It's a hidden gem.

Louisville's beautiful in its own right, too, and it still has the Highlands and Crescent Hill as "funky" (in a good way) neighborhoods. But it just doesn't compare to Cincinnati.

I grew up in rural PA, moved to California (Redondo Beach) for two years and had friends there already, and then accepted a job in Denver and lived alone for three months until i moved into a two-bedroom apartment with my roommate.

It was a lot easier to make friends in Denver than I expected it to be and while I love having a roommate, I also didn't mind living alone as much as I thought I would. In my opinion, people here are generally friendlier than the people I had encountered in CA and also in PA to the point where I didn't mind going out to a bars by myself because I would always end up striking up conversation with someone.

So yeah, I voted for Denver.
