Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Best of the North. It comes as no surprise to all of you that live north of Cincinnati, that this area (what we have defined as ranging from Ronald Reagan Highway spanning all the way north to Route 63) is thriving with options where to live, work and play.

Every time we write about the North, we find not only that we get great feedback from you, our Cincy magazine subscribers, but also that we continue to feel like we could have done so much more.

The Best of the North is our answer to "doing more," and what we consider just a start to what we hope to cover in the future about this "go t' area. We appreciate your feedback, so

please let me know what you think at eharmon@cincymagazine.com.
