Well I can't really imagine what would fit the bill in that regard. As someone who lives in the suburbs, I mainly go to downtown for the Reds/Bengals game, the Cincinnati Zoo, and the Museum.
When I look at big cities like Chicago, or NYC, the main reason why people visit during the weekends is to go shopping on Michigan Avenue. I think that's were Cincinnati needs to develop itself more. To be more people friendly, to invest in more shopping plaza's and stores.
Because right now, the perception about Cincinnati is that it's filled with dangerous black people, and that there really only a few "safe" area's to walk around. Which is, somewhat true I guess.
