According to the ranking, “it’s super easy to get around here” as a result of the Cincinnati Bell Connector streetcar system and “the popular Metro bus service.” Cincinnati also scored high in housing, economy, education, demographic, and health.
“The list also notes the Cincinnati Zoo, Skyline Chili, Findlay Market, Rhinegeist Brewery, MadTree Brewing, National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, and more among highlights of the city, while naming the role of the Cincinnati Reds’ Gapper mascot as a local dream job.”
