Hometown to the legendary Steven Spielberg, Cincinnati is Ohio's third-largest city, one that enjoys its picturesque location along the Ohio River. Whether it's the hot chili you're after or nighttime views of the divine skyline, this city leaves an indelible mark on all who visit. It's easy to navigate too thanks to an extensive bus network and the nifty little Cincinnati Bell Connector - a modernized streetcar service. Vacation rentals cater well to families with kids, independent travelers, couples, and groups of friends.Tasteful vacation rentals for all
The city boasts a range of well-fitted vacation rentals. The lively downtown district is the top choice for most travelers thanks to its proximity to attractions such as the Carew Tower Observation Deck, John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, and Fountain Square. Hipster cafés, restaurants, and nightclubs are another great reason to book a Holidu rental in the central district. Architecture fans meanwhile should consider renting in the Over-the-Rhine district located in the city's West End. Accommodation around Eden Park will fetch you quick access to the Cincinnati Art Museum, and Krohn Conservatory. Finally, for a quiet escape, try setting up base in the neighboring cities of Newport and Covington.

The edgy Over-the-Rhine district pleases all tastes with live music venues such as MOTR, or 16-Bit Bar + Arcade with its 50+ classic arcade games.
