Default Cleveland vs. Cincinnati

Let's settle this once and for all. The competition between residents/ex-residents has infiltrated other threads, and at times caused moderators to take action. Tell us, why is Cleveland a better city than Cincinnati? Why is Cincinnati a better city than Cleveland?

Operative word: Better.

Have lived all over Ahia and found the following is the only thing that really matters:

Girl-O-Meter:

Oxford 10+
Youngstown 10+
Athens 10
Columbus 9
Cincinnati 7
Akron 6 +
Cleveland 6
Dayton 5
Toledo 3

Yeah, I actually thought about this.

Default Cleveland

Clevelands better because:
-The Lake/Beaches/Boating
-National Park/Skiing
-Diversity
-Museums
-Sports
-Entertainment
-Music Scene
-More Liberal/Democratic
-Larger
-Street Grid/Freeway system

Cincinnatis better because:
-Weather
-Architecture
-Crime
-River
-Growing

Some of those are based on preference though, for example weather. Those also go for the City, Metro, and CSA. Personally I have lived in Cleveland, and the Cleveland area for most of my life. Ive also lived in Cincinnati for 8 months not counting visits. You all already know my choice. Based on all of that, its obviously Cleveland. All hands down.

People can act a fool if they want to, lol, I'm just tired of...

A: The Cle vs Cin partisan b.s.
B: The posters that complain about the Cin vs Cle thing

Either way, the moderators will do what's necessary.

Why do you feel the museums and entertainment is better in Cleveland as opposed to Cincinnati?

Cleveland seems to have a lot more activity as far as entertainment. Concert tours almost always come through Cleveland, while they skip over Cincinnati a lot more. That also goes with the sports, and we have 3 very popular major sports teams.

As far as museums and theaters, Cleveland is much better than Cincinnati. Cleveland has the largest concentration outside of NYCs broadway. World class collection of museums and theaters. Playhouse square is also the 2nd largest performing arts center outside of New Yorks Lincoln Center. The Cleveland orchestra is regarded as the best in the United States, and among the best in the world. Just to name a few: Cleveland Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary art Cleveland, Great Lakes Science Center, Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, Pro football hall of fame (Canton).

Many concerts do head to Cleveland; however, many great bands/acts stop in Cincinnati as well, including those that miss Cleveland. I also would consider the popularity of the Cavs and Indians as not quite great; the Browns, sure. Cleveland's theater scene is impressive, as well as the commitment to local musical talent.

As for the museums, Cincinnati has some fine institutions of its own. The Contemporary Arts Center, or CAC, is one of the original institutions in America dedicated to displaying contemporary art. It was established in 1939, 29 years before Cleveland's museum.

The Cincinnati Art Museum is one of the oldest museums in the country, and the oldest purpose-built museum west of the Alleghenies. The museum boasts over 60,000 works, compared to Cleveland's 43,000. The museum was also the first in America to dedicate a wing to the history of its own city.

Other museums in Cincinnati include the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal and the National Underground Freedom Center. Music Hall, which houses Cincinnati's orchestra, is one of the largest and best performance halls in the world. This isn't meant to nitpick, just to shed some light on how some cultural institutions match up between the cities.
