There is nothing like November in the Northern Kentucky and Cincy Region. The vibrant fall colors are in full bloom as they transition for the winter, the sweater weather has us donning our favorite fall outfits and we all move our chairs around the firepit as we avoid the direct smoke. It’s a great time of year here and there is plenty to do. From amazing artists taking the stage for concerts and theater productions to the official kickoff of the holiday season, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
