CINCINNATI
Ohio, U.S.A.
THE FIRST REAL AMERICAN CITY
Welcome to Cincinnati, Ohio.
Cincinnati is the county seat of Hamilton County, and the third-largest city in Ohio with around 297,000 residents. Cincinnati was settled in 1788 on the north side of the confluence of the Licking and Ohio Rivers, and the city was a boomtown in the 19th century. Situated in the heart of the country, it challenged larger coastal cities in both size and wealth, and was long one of the top cities in the U.S. Cincinnati is often referred to as the "first real American city", because of its inland location and it being the first American city founded after the American Revolution. The city's position as a boomtown declined toward the end of the 19th century, when steamboats where replaced by railroads for trading routes. Today, the city is known for its sports teams, including the Cincinnati Reds; the oldest franchise in Major League Baseball. Cincinnati also boasts one of the 50 largest universities in the country, the University of Cincinnati, which was built in 1819. The university is not the only historic building in the Cincinnati, which is indeed famous for its many preserved buildings. Thanks to its many ambitious architectural projects, including the impressive Music Hall, Cincinnati was even referred to as Paris of America in the late 1800s. Other architecturally significant structures include the Cincinnatian Hotel and the Shillito Department Store, as well as the Carew Tower, Ingalls Building, and the Isaac M. Wise Temple. Also worth a visit is the Findlay Market, Ohio's oldest operating market. The focal point of Downtown Cincinnati is Fountain Square, a public square and the location for many community events. Fountain Square also serves as one of the cultural cornerstones of the entire region. The tallest building in Cincinnati is the new Queen City Square, which towers 665 feet above ground. The city also has other new additions, like the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati; the first casino in the city and the fourth in the state of Ohio. The food scene in Cincinnati is flavored by its rich German heritage, and many restaurants specialize in schnitzels and Bavarian cooking. Cincinnati even features two major festivals that focus on traditional German foods; Oktoberfest Zinzinnati and Bockfest, the country's oldest German bock beer festival. Aside from German cuisine, Cincinnati features a wealth of gourmet restaurants, including three Jean-Robert de Cavel restaurants. In terms of cultural recreation, Cincinnati features numerous excellent venues in the areas of theatre, music and art. Worth a attending is the performances of the Cincinnati Opera, the Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, to name a few.
