Like lots of Cincinnati natives, I've tried from time to time to move to a new city, but I always come back to my hometown. I love finding the hidden places in Cincinnati that haven't made it on the radar just yet. If you look (and you don't have to look too hard) you can find unique places in Cincinnati that allow you to see the city through a different lens.


Nicole has been covering Cincinnati news for more than a decade, and her articles have appeared in local and national publications. For many years she wrote about her two favorite subjects, music and restaurants, for the Cincinnati Enquirer.


Nicole has a B.A. in poltical science and a master's degree in literature and writing. She's also a certified yoga instructor.
