Why Was Cincinnati Ranked Ohio’s Best Place to Live?

Cincinnati Ohio

In July of 2021, U.S. News & World Report did its rankings of 150 US cities for 2021-2022. We shouldn’t be surprised at the results, but nonetheless, we were pleased. The magazine ranked Cincinnati as Ohio’s best city to live in.

To quote them:

“Residents benefit from a wealth of amenities, including museums, professional sports teams and a wide selection of restaurants. Families are drawn to Cincinnati for its excellent public and private schools, and its large number of Montessori schools.”

YES. Into it.

Of the 150 cities, Cincinnati also showed up among the most affordable, at #13. No wonder we can be such affordable Cincinnati roofers – the standard of living is excellent in Cincy!

Overall, the magazine placed Cincinnati at #44 in the “best places to live” list, and #82 in “best places to retire.” (Understandable. It does get snowy here, after all.)

Let’s look again at that “most affordable places” designation. Cincinnati appeared in the top 10% of all American cities listed. What was their rationale?

Huntsville, Alabama, by the way, was the most affordable. Cincinnati, though, not far behind.

“Fortune 500 companies bring in national and international talent. But Cincinnati is hardly a place that’s all work and no play. Locals love a good party, be it for the first day of baseball season or in honor of the city’s German heritage. Even when the event calendar is empty, residents have plenty of ways to stay busy, from visiting an array of museums to noshing on the region’s famous chili.”

And, of course, the region’s famous chili is available from several different providers. Skyline Chili, of course, but also Gold Star Chili, Pleasant Ridge Chili, Park Chili, and a few other independent operators.

Might we also recommend Cincinnati’s bevy of parks? From the majesty of Ault Park to the greenery of Eden Park, from the historical import of Spring Grove Cemetary to the understated charm of Rheinstrom Park in Indian Hill?

Anyhow, we are thrilled that Cincinnati is getting respect on the national stage, and we hope that the influx of new transplants to the Queen City do not drive rent prices up to the point that we are bumped from the list.

May the autumn leaves turn every vibrant shade you hope for, and may your roofs and gutters prosper. Until we meet again… Who Dey.
