We warmly welcome visitors into Cincinnati and revel in sharing our love for our hometown. But just like everywhere else, there are things that out-of-towners just don’t understand while visiting the Queen City. If you’ve lived here your entire life, these 9 things are probably second nature to you, but we have to keep in mind that visitors may need us to explain what makes Cincinnati unique and special.

While we may have to explain these Cincinnati oddities to visitors, they are also reasons that we love our city. What do you think of this list? What else have you had to explain to an out of town visitor?

If you happen to have a visitor in town and need some unique ideas for things to do, check out our recent article here.
