Cincinnati has a lot of sports activities and night life There is also the Horseshoe casino but I went on a weekend and was extremely crowded with eating places taking an hour to 90 minutes to seat you best to get reservation well in advance however there are excellent restaurants in the downtown area
It's a nice city. But the life of the city centre is dying from the competition of malls. Hardly any shops.
There's a few good resturants. Jeff Rubys Steakhouse is expensive, but fantastic. If you head over the bridge there's a place called Hôfbrauhaus, it's like a german brewery with outdoor and indoor serving. Great beer, nice staff and german entertainment.
