Live. Work. Play.
Northern Kentucky is a vital part of the 16-county Greater Cincinnati region, a thriving metro area with professional sports teams; significant arts and cultural institutions; prominent public and private universities; a modern streetcar line; and nationally-recognized restaurant, craft beer, and live music scenes. We also celebrate our identity around supportive communities, historic neighborhoods, and Kentucky’s famous bourbon and horse culture.
We’re a one-day drive from 54% of the U.S. population, the nexus where three interstate highways meet, including I-75 linking Michigan to Florida. We’re home to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG), which offers 165 peak-day flights and is home to DHL’s North America super-hub and the Amazon Air cargo hub. The region also boasts seven Fortune 500 companies’ headquarters.
We connect the north and south, the Midwest and Southeast, and we welcome everyone.
