When Travel + Leisure calls your city one of the “best places to travel in 2017”, you know you’ve made it.

Travel + Leisure’s 2017 “best places to travel”

Cincinnati has made it.

Travel + Leisure’s annual “best places” list recommends trip ideas for world travelers. The magazine says “putting together our annual list of best places to travel is a process that takes several months – we survey writers based around the world, talk to our A-List travel specialists, and look at the most exciting hotel and restaurant openings.”

Cincinnati is featured among world destinations including Cape Town, South Africa; Honolulu, Hawaii and Helsinki, Finland.

The feature calls out the transformation and renovation occurring in the city’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood with a nod to the upcoming reopening of historic Music Hall and the inaugural BLINK light and art event.
