Both Cincinnati and Dayton have made the Top 10 Best Cities for Nightlife in America.
A specific algorithm is in place to compile this list.
New York City and Los Angeles are NOT on the list. Mainly because it’s overcrowded and expensive AF.
3. Dayton, OH
Whether you have a hankering for happy hour, dancing, karaoke or a dive, you'll find it in Dayton. The city may be on the small side, but the ratio of nightlife options per resident ensures that you'll never run out of fun things to do after the sun goes down.
Dayton is the most affordable city in our top 10 list. Rent here is only $731 for an average one-bedroom apartment.
2. Cincinnati, OH
More than double the size of its sister city in the number three spot, Cincinnati is no newbie to the craft beer craze sweeping the nation. Breweries have been a mainstay here since the mid-1800s, so you can imagine Cincy knows a little something about nightlife.
One-bedroom apartments in Cincinnati go for about $1,000 a month.
