Recent Cincinnati News Comes as No Surprise

Cincinnati has undergone an amazingly noteworthy transformation during the last several years. The revitalization of downtown’s Fountain Square, the redevelopment of Over-the Rhine, and the expansive new riverfront park are all successes that have put Cincinnati in the national spotlight and garnered well-deserved attention. Therefore, it came as no surprise to us at Robinson Sotheby’s International Real Estate that our hometown earned the top spot on Jetsetter’s list of hip cities. “7 U.S. Cities That Are Hipper Than You Think” author, Siobhan Reid, heralds Cincinnati’s splendid mix of Old World charm and contemporary cultural delights.

Jingle Bells and Horse Drawn Sleighs Delight in Lebanon

Historic Lebanon, Ohio, with its authentic charm of a bygone era, is a lovely place to visit anytime of the year. During the holiday season, however, downtown is magically transformed into a picturesque Victorian Christmas village with a storybook feel. The whole town appears to be under a wondrous glow from the elaborate decorations and sparkling lights that adorn the streets and merchants’ shops. It’s no wonder that Charles Dickens himself was drawn to this quaint locale during his travels to America.

To make the holidays even more grand, Lebanon will be hosting its annual Horse-Drawn Carriage Parade on Saturday, December 2nd. Hosted by the Lebanon Area Chamber of Commerce, the parade has gained tremendous popularity in recent years. With more than 100 horse-drawn carriages, decorated with sleigh bells and other holiday finery, few events herald the holiday season with greater regality. Early birds line the streets for an afternoon parade that begins at 1:00 pm, while those who attend the evening procession, at 7:00 pm, are treated to a candlelit spectacle.

In addition to the parade, other festivities include gift and food vendors stationed along E. Mulberry Street; shopping in downtown Historic Lebanon with extended business hours for its 80-plus antique and specialty stores; Christmas carolers, carriage rides; visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus; musical entertainment, and train rides to the North Pole on the North Pole Express with LM&M Railroad. This is a free family event that all of us at Robinson Sotheby’s International Realty know you will not want to miss!
