Cincinnati, OH

What’ve been your favorite places!?”

I’m going to answer this, most frequently asked question, over a series of posts of my favorite places in North America that I’ve visited so far, and hopefully keep adding to it as I go. So stay tuned, my pretties.

Next up,

Cincinnati, OHCincinnati, OH
(aka: The Queen City)

Here it is – the home city. I was born and raised just outside of Cincinnati, so spending a majority of my life here, I claim it as my home city.

Mark Twain put it simply – “When the end of the world comes, I want to be in Cincinnati because it’s always twenty years behind the times.” While I  wouldn’t go that far, I’ve always said it’s behind the times. But still, it’s catching up a bit!

It’s a work in progress, but here’s a quick layout of some of my favorite spots around town!
