My thoughts on the area

I live in Northern Kentucky, about 10 minutes from downtown Cincinnati and I find myself in that area at least a couple of times a month. They have some amazing restaurants for date night with the wife, Cincinnati Zoo is second to none, and the kids love exploring and you can't forget about the Cincinnati Children's Museum. I could write a whole story on this museum, the kids love it and it's very interesting for the adults as well.

The Tri-State is growing rapidly, Kroger has a Headquarters in Cincinnati and Amazon just built one of the main Air Hubs in the nation, it's located in Northern Kentucky at the CVG airport.
