Mark Twain is suppose to have said "When the end of the world comes, I want to be in Cincinnati because it’s always 20 years behind the times*." With all due respect this is no longer true of the Queen City! From the redevelopment of the historic downtown district, Over-the-Rhine (or OTR for short), to the record breaking attendance of the new profession soccer team, FC Cincinnati, this city is undergoing a transformation - and is a great place to complete residency.
One example of a local favorite spot is Woodburn Ave located in East Walnut Hills. Less than 5 minutes from the hospital many residents and faculty choose to make this community their home. It is an up-and-coming hipster-hood with small restaurants, art studios, bike stores and the always popular O-Pie-O (which only serves pie based foods- think tarts, pot pies, quiches, empanadas, and of course the seasonal pie-a-la-mode).
You can often find a group of residents celebrating a birthday (as pictured here), playing trivia, supporting local businesses during the Friday night Walking-on-Woodbrun event, or taking their pets to one of the dog-friends eating spots!

*a note to the history buffs, according to "The Quote Investigator" Mark Twain may not have actually uttered these words... but it is such a common story we will let it slide.
