About the Region
About the Region > Getting Around Cincinnati USA


Cincinnati USA is less than a half day car ride and a two hour flight from 60% of the U.S. population.  Interstates I-75, I-71 and I-74 link Cincinnati USA to the continental U.S.


Getting around Downtown Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky by foot is fast and enjoyable.  Take a stroll across the Ohio River on the Purple People or Roebling Suspension Bridges.  Both provide pedestrians stunning views and convenient access to the region’s most popular venues on the Riverfront including restaurants, Great American Ballpark, Newport on the Levee and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.
