CityBeat's Best Photos of 2018

As 2018 draws to a close, some of us are wishing the year wouldn’t end while others are saying “Good riddance!” It’s true: These past 365 days have had their fair share of downs in Cincinnati and beyond, but that’s not to say that we Cincinnatians didn’t have some damn good moments, too. Together we attended awesome live shows and listened to the best bands to come out of the Queen City, dined and drank at established eateries and brand new bars alike, chilled at our favorite hangouts, saw some seriously cool museum exhibits and met people who graced Cincinnati with their talents and hard work. Luckily, all of this and more was captured by CityBeat and complied for pleasant reminiscing. Without further ado, CityBeat humbly presents our favorite photos highlighting all of the brightest and best moments captured from the past year.
