I'm currently looking into taking a road trip in January to see Marquette play Cincinnati at the Fifth Third Arena the weekend of MLK, Jr day. I have been to Cincinnati previously on a service trip in Over-the-Rhine. From what I remember, UC's campus is not in downtown Cincinnati (but please correct me if I'm wrong).
I'd like your honest opinion about where to stay. I prefer to stay somewhere with a fun, young nightlife, but also is very safe.
Thanks in advance!
