Many people know Cincinnati from the tv show “WKRP in Cincinnati”. Cincinnati is a lot more than that. Called the Queen City, Cincinnati has a rich heritage and culture. Located on the Ohio river, metro Cincinnati covers the area where the borders of Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky meet.
Cincinnati is home to major businesses like Proctor and Gamble, Chiquita, Kroger’s and of course 4WeHelp Movers!
The Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region is steeped in a rich history and legacy. The revitalization of historic neighborhoods and the scenic riverfront – coupled with the fact that Cincinnati is one of only 13 U.S. cities with professional companies in all five arts: ballet, opera, fine art museums, symphony and theater – makes the region a vibrant area for arts, culture and history, including in its architecture and landmarks. Experience the German heritage in our festivals and events, marvel at the Art Deco architecture in buildings throughout the area, and delve below the streets to relive the history of such a unique river region.
On the Ohio side, stroll through Smale Riverfront Park and let the kids splash around in the fountain to cool off on a hot day or take a break on the porch-style swings overlooking the Ohio River. When you’re thirsty or your stomach’s growling, head over to one of the many restaurants at The Banks to refuel. For views of the river and bridges try Moerlein Lage House or Yard House, or pick up a frozen treat at Orange Leaf to enjoy on the go.
