Author and tour guide Rick Pender has written a book called 100 Things To Do In Cincinnati Before You Die and he is confident new tourists will love the place.

He says: “With history and professional sports, arts and culture, a restaurant scene that’s a rival of any city and more craft breweries than you can shake a stein at, Cincinnati continues to be an exciting place to explore. When I guide tours, I often hear people say, ‘I had no idea that Cincinnati was such a great place’.”
