Default Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland

Since I didnt see this on the first page, I am sure it has never been addressed



Which of the three would you consider to be the most socially liberal?
Which has the brightest future?
Most things to do for kids?
Adults?
Most/least diverse?
Best bookstores?
Differences in the weather?

Other thoughts?

Close one to call, but I'd give the edge to Cleveland. Cincinnati has some cool things to do for adults/kids like their aquarium and pro sports though.

  • Which of the three would you consider to be the most socially liberal?
Columbus.
  • Which has the brightest future?
I don't feel like starting a flame war by answering that question.
  • Most things to do for kids?
Cincinnati.
  • Adults?
Depends on what adults want to do.
  • Most/least diverse?
Not sure, really.
  • Best bookstores?
Cincinnati. Can't beat Joseph-Beth.
  • Differences in the weather?
Not sure what you mean, but Cincinnati is the warmest, most humid and has the least snow. Columbus has the highest average rainfall total of the 3 C's. Cleveland has the most snow, and is usually the coolest at any given time of year.

  • Other thoughts?
Not sure what else there is to say. Depends on what else you'd like to know. It's all very subjective. People will say Cleveland has the brightest future, while others will say Cincinnati or Columbus. Cleveland has certainly had its problems in the past. Same with Cincinnati. Some might say Columbus has the brightest future, but I really don't see much of anything new really going on with Columbus in the future. To me, it will be the same-old/same-old that has been going on there for a while now. Cleveland seems to be regaining some reputation and might make a comeback if it can continue to shed it's dirty industrial stale image. As for Cincinnati.....I'll plead the Fifth. (Let's just say I don't share the same love affair with Cincinnati that most other members here do...despite the fact that I'm a native and still live in the area.)

Trying my best not to be biased here:

Which of the three would you consider to be the most socially liberal?
CLEVELAND, then COLUMBUS due to Ohio State

Which has the brightest future?
Toss up...honestly I would say CINCINNATI for the city itself.

Most things to do for kids?
COLUMBUS

Adults?
CLEVELAND (3 sports teams, Broadway shows, museums, concerts, comedy clubs, bars/nightlife/cafes, cleveland orchestra, RRHOF, Metroparks)

Most/least diverse?
most CLEVELAND -- least COLUMBUS

Best bookstores?
dunno.

Differences in the weather?
Best in order...CINCINNATI, COLUMBUS, CLEVELAND

Other thoughts?
We're lucky in the state to have three distinct big cities and metros...not many other states can say that. If I had to pick one to live CLEVELAND, then CINCINNATI, then COLUMBUS

I am surprised Cleveland is leading.

I have always heard Columbus is the better city.

Columbus has a lot of white collar jobs and is a yuppie haven with one of the country's biggest universities and a lot of state government jobs. IMHO, Cleveland is a much, much better "city".
