"The Queen City" of Ohio is also the 65th largest city in the United States. Cincinnati has a population of just under 300,000 people currently, though it at one time was consistently listed among the ten largest cities in the U.S. Though the move away from railroads diverted much of the city's population to coastal ports, the city's history is still rich and patriotic. It is often called the first truly American city because it developed without as much influence from European immigrants as some of the cities on the Eastern seaboard (though German heritage is strong in the city). The weather in Cincinnati fluctuates between highs in the mid-80s during the summer and lows in the mid-20s during the winter. Almost 1/3 of the year is precipitation days for Cincinnati, which contributes an annual rainfall of three-and-a-half feet.
Several major corporations are headquartered in Cincinnati, most notably Macy's, Proctor & Gamble, and Kroger. The last company on that list is the largest employer in the city, providing 17,000 jobs, beating out the second largest employer of the University of Cincinnati by almost 2,000 jobs.
Cincinnati's sports history is almost as rich as its patriotic heritage. The city has two major league teams, six minor league teams, and seven major sports venues. The MLB's Cincinnati Reds, founded in 1882, are America's first ever professional baseball team. This honor entitles Cincinnati to host the traditional Opening Day game of the each inaugural season, which is treated almost as a city holiday. In the NFL, the Cincinnati Bengals are a much younger team, founded in 1968. Culturally, Cincinnati reflects the German heritage it developed from an influx of immigrants in the 19th century. Much of the food, in particular, revolves around schnitzels and Bavarian cooking, and there are two annual festivals devoted to this heritage: Oktoberfest Zinzinnati (the largest Oktoberfest outside of Munich) and Bockfest.
