Breweries, baseball and chili make this city a heartland hub.

The Cincinnati, Ohio, story is all the sweeter because it’s one about a comeback. Credit Cincy for revitalizing its downtown and riverfront — and putting itself back on the map as one of the buzziest cities in America’s heartland. Rent a bike to explore the riverfront, walk across a purple pedestrian bridge to Kentucky or hop a boat to ply the waters of the Ohio River. Explore the vintage charms of two historic neighborhoods, Over-the-Rhine and Mount Adams, both boasting parks, boutiques and brew pubs. And don’t leave without trying the hometown chili and ice cream that make “Queen City” residents proud.
