Cincinnati is ranked in the top forty best places to live by U.S. News and World Report and there are a few different reasons families are drawn to the city. While many might think it’s just one more Midwestern small metro town, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Cincy (as it is commonly nick-named) has a rewarding job market with Fortune 500 companies calling it home. As more people have moved to work in this city, the demand for great schools has increased. Both public and private schools get top marks, and there is a sizeable Montessori school presence in the community as well.
The cost of living in Cincinnati is also a major benefit, especially to those who have been struggling in large markets on the costs. Singles tend to live in downtown areas like Oakley and Hyde park while families opt for suburban locals like Kenwood and Loveland. With the median home price at just $150,000, residents have more spending power in the market for entertainment and experiences.
Cincy is overrun with fun things to do, and there really is something for everyone. Thrill seekers will adore the roller coasters at Kings Island. Explorers can take a dip into Newport Aquarium, and culture lovers will love the museums and art exhibits. Fanatics can drown themselves in MLB or NFL games and top it off with a trip to one of many breweries. The bigger issue is likely going to be, choosing what not to do.
