The St Louis Contrarian

St. Louis and Cincinnati

We are visiting our kids and grandkids in Cincinnati. This city is often compared to St. Louis as older river cities. This comparison is overly superficial. What we have noticed here in Cincinnati is the better quality of the neighborhoods in the city and the vibrancy of the downtown. A big difference we have observed is the riverfront. Cincinnati has miles of recreational land along the Ohio River which is beautiful, and free. Families actually come in from the suburbs to use the facilities, playgrounds, walkways, parks, etc. St. Louis has virtually no activity along the riverfront except for the arch grounds. This is a huge difference and speaks miles about the differences between the two cities. Written by Paul Dribin
