A couple of months ago, Forbes travel writer Adrienne Jordan explored the Cincinnati culinary scene, suggesting "5 Great Places to Eat" in the city.

This week Forbes published another story about the Queen City. Written by contributor John Oseid, the article declares Cincinnati "a great American city" that is "roaring back."

The article offers praise for art deco structures like Carew Tower and Union Terminal and praises Cincinnati's various museums, including the Taft Museum, the Freedom Center, the American Sign Museum and the various exhibits inside the Museum Center at Union Terminal.

The piece ends with Oseid writing, "Perhaps finally, it's time to go right back up to the top of Carew Tower and admire Cincinnati from the sky all over again — now that you know and admire its riches so intimately from ground level." There's also a nice plug for the forthcoming BLINK event in the tagline.

We've come a long way — just five years ago, a Forbes ranking declared Cincinnati the home of the unhappiest workers in the U.S.
