Just South Of Cincinnati
Northern Kentucky is a key part of the 16-county Greater Cincinnati region, a thriving metro area with seven Fortune 500 companies headquartered here; professional sports teams; major arts and cultural institutions; prominent public and private universities; a modern streetcar line; and nationally-recognized restaurant, craft beer and live music scenes.
We’re a one-day drive from 60% 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, is home to DHL’s North America super-hub and is the home of the Amazon Air cargo hub.
The Ohio River brought the area’s first settlers and remains a vital transportation artery today. Major east-west and north-south railroad lines cross here.
“I love the access to big-city amenities around Cincinnati, but I also support my neighborhood businesses and volunteer at my kids’ school.”
Candace McGraw, CEO of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport
