Cincinnati overview

Known as “Cincy” to the locals, Cincinnati is a centre of art, culture, entertainment and business. Originally settled by the Germans in the 1800s, today’s Cincinnati is a thriving metropolis welcoming millions of travellers each year. Cincinnati is one of the Midwest’s top business centres, so it’s no surprise that businessmen and businesswomen located in the surrounding states (Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia) book flights to Cincinnati for quick sales visits, board meetings and last-minute deals. In fact, it’s not uncommon to see business deals made during the flight to Cincinnati – once you’re here, there’s more things to do in Cincinnati than sit enclosed in white walls of local businesses.

Home to the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals and the MLB’s Cincinnati Reds, Cincinnati is an awesome sports town booming with enthusiasm. Entertainment gurus will remember Cincinnati as the location for the fictional, “WKRP in Cincinnati” radio show and the starting point for the Academy Award winning movie, “Rain Man.” Whatever your reason for booking airline tickets to Cincinnati, there’s plenty to see in this modern Midwestern hub and the inviting people of the city will have you booking return flights to Cincinnati before your trip is over.

Peak Season

Cincinnati is packed with tourists during the summer time, due mainly in part to school vacations and baseball season. The weather is hot and can get humid, but there is plenty of things to do in Cincinnati this time of year. Book flights to Cincinnati and hotel rooms in advance if you're planning a summer trip.

Off Season

Ohio gets cold in the winter months and Cincinnati gets a good rash of winter. Snow, rain and wind fall heavily on the city but this is also the best time to book cheap plane tickets to Cincinnati.

Getting around Cincinnati

The Queen City Metro, Cincinnati’s bus service, will take you all over the city. You will need exact change or bus tokens. You can take a cab, but city ordinances prohibit taxis from picking up passengers on the side of the road. You’ll have to snag one at a taxi stand or call ahead. If you can find a nearby hotel or the convention centre, you’ll usually find a cab easily.
