Hamilton County, Ohio, USA

Located on the northern banks of the Ohio River, Cincinnati was one of the first major American cities in the Midwest. At that time, a large portion of its population was German either by birth or ethnicity. Today it’s home to the Reds (baseball), the Bengals (football), and FC Cincinnati, which will soon be admitted to the MLS. One of the largest employers in the area is multinational Proctor and Gamble, and a great deal of the city’s population spreads beyond its limits northward towards Dayton, westward into Indiana, and southward into Northern Kentucky.
