MSN: Can’t Afford a Trip To New York City or San Francisco? Go to Cincinnati Instead

Cincinnati is the largest metro area in Ohio and neighboring Kentucky, and its central Midwest location is within one day's drive for half of all Americans. The airport offers more than 50 non-stop flights on 11 airlines with the lowest airfares in the region. It's racked up awards such as the 9th Best Metro Area to Visit in Summer and One of the Top Places to Visit in the U.S. by Travel & Leisure magazine. But unlike some of the other destinations on those ‘best of' lists, this urban vacation spot is a fraction of the price of other U.S. cities.

In most places that you like, you can pinpoint exactly what they’ve done to make it pleasant—the riverfront has been redone, a group of chefs have made a major impact, a strong mayor forced through needed changes. In conversations with locals the impression I got in Cincinnati was a little bit of everything–artists and art lovers, determined entrepreneurs, advocacy groups, and conscientious local corporations. Whatever the mix, I’m excited to keep coming back, as there’s something going right here.
