We opened its first brewery in 1812. Today there are over sixty, and every autumn more than 700,000 people help us celebrate that heritage with America’s largest Oktoberfest. Kentucky’s storied Bourbon Trail begins here as well, offering connoisseurs a vast selection that is the envy of the world.
Cincinnati sustains several first-rate performing arts organizations and hosts world-class touring shows and exhibits as well.
In the summer, you can root for the Cincinnati Reds…America’s very first professional baseball team. In the autumn, cheer on the Bengals…or one of Major League Soccer’s newest teams, FC Cincinnati. Basketball fans can follow NCAA tournament regulars Xavier, University of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky University.
We also host NASCAR, horse racing and a legendary tennis tournament. With five rivers in the area, we’re overflowing with water activities, but we also have 23,000 miles of long-distance trails and hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails.
