My spouse recently got a job offer for the area and we know very little about it. What do we need to know? What should we look out for?

    Construction on the highways and various bridges means crossing back and forth at times is going to be horrible. There are some ferry services depending on where you end up living that can mitigate the hassle. Crime is everywhere as well as heaps of racism.

    I can give better advice about specifics to where you're going to end up staying.

    does it?

    They have Winter there. It may be an adjustment for Floridians

    I have a cousin who lived in Northern Cincinnati for a while, and she said it was fine, she didn’t feel unsafe, but she moved to Austin for work. She still talks about how cheap housing was compared to Austin.

    I have lived in the Cincinnati area for most of the last 30 years. Some things to know:
    1. Weather can be sudden and severe. The Ohio River brings a lot of humidity into the area that can cause sudden severe storms in the afternoons when the weather is warm. Meanwhile, these days we tend to be on the boarder of bad weather in the Winter, where we can get Rain, Snow, or Ice when storms come through the area. Ice is the biggest issue as its a hilly area.
    2. There is pretty much no public transportation outside of downtown Cincinnati. Get used to driving.
    3. Traffic is a pain from around 4:30pm to 6pm, mostly caused by stupid people who are incapable of driving in clear, dry weather. Otherwise, there tend to be few issues.
    4. There are a lot of republicans in the area, split between the wealthy who want to fuck poor people over and the poor who are hardcore trumpers. Where you live will determine which group you get.
