Cincinnati Ranked "The Place to Be" in 2012                     

Lonely Planet, the travel experts,  ranked Cincinnati #3 in their list of places for travel in 2012.  We're in great company!

They rated the US Virgin Islands #1 and the Hudson River Valley, New York # 2. Following us in the ranking are the Four Corners Region in southwest USA; Culebra, Puerto Rico; California gold Country; Boulder, Colorado; Hawaii's,  Big Island; Chicago; and Yellowstone National Park.

Cincinnati was recognized for more than just its river city attributes.  They praised it as a worthy venue for a weekend away. Particularly recognized were Mt. Adams, the Cincinnati Art Museum, Over the Rhine's Italianate architecture and  Findlay Market.  They claimed the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center was one of the primary reasons for our ranking.  It's certainly exciting when you add the 2012 World Choir Games to this list!
