Cincinnati Neighborhoods, Locations and Districts
(Cincinnati, Ohio - OH, USA)
Cincinnati's fine position on the banks of the Ohio River makes for a picturesque setting, while its location in the far southwest corner of Ohio gives the city its historical reputation, as the traditional bridge between the north and south.
The city of Cincinnati overwhelmingly displays more southern character than other cities in Ohio and is divided into a number of notable districts and neighborhoods. Home to a number of fine museums and art galleries, Cincinnati's districts also feature some beautiful 19th-century historic homes, significant landmarks and the state's best theme parks.
