What Renters Like and Dislike About Fort Thomas

It is a quiet neighborhood. It consists mostly of retirees and young families. Very well lit and little crime.

I love Churchill market. I also love being within walking distance of Starbucks and Graeters. With my friends I take walks toward newport pavillion.

They have a few cute little places. Midway cafe is a great little bar with decent wings and a pretty decent rotating draft list. Cobblestone is a cute little cafe for a nice lunch. My favorite is Fort Thomas Ice Cream their handmade ice cream is wonderful.
