Cincinnati’s Local 48 calls itself the birthplace of professional firefighting. It’s not only the birthplace of firefighting but also of Procter & Gamble, Sunny Delight, and Chiquita Brands International- a few brands amongst the impressive list of 10 Fortune 100 companies based in the this all-American, river-front city.  Its unemployment rate has not grown as much as other former industrial cities, gaining only 3.6 % since before the economy collapsed.  With solid job growth potential, Cincinnati’s big Fortune 100 companies are slowly pulling the city back into a positive economic reality.

Bonus fun fact: Cincinnati was home to the first night baseball game.
