Cincinnati named NFL’s worst travel destination for fans

Where does the city of Cincinnati rank as far as NFL fan experiences goes?

According to one author, the house of the Bengals ranks dead last of all NFL areas.

Ben Volin of the Boston World set out to rank every NFL location in the nation and slapped the Bengals last, composing the following:

30. Cincinnati: The ribs at Montgomery Inn are fantastic. And you can remain throughout the river in Covington to cross Kentucky off your list of states checked out. However there’s very little going on in downtown Cincinnati, the arena has no tailgating area, and Bengals video games are hardly ever interesting.

This is the sort of offseason list that produces debate, obviously. While Bengals fans and others truly have their gripes with the general experience and character of Paul Brown Arena itself, ranking it dead last appears like rather an exaggeration.

Bear in mind something here — authors appear, get a hotel, consume, cover a video game and leave. Unless the author invested extensive time in the area, she or he just gets a photo of what a city needs to provide prior to returning house.

Still, it’s odd to see Cincinnati land last and produces an intriguing summer season discussion, if absolutely nothing else.
