Cincinnati, OH

Getting to Know Cincinnati, OH

Both a charming Southern town and a bustling Midwestern metropolis, Cincinnati is a city of rolling hills, beautiful Ohio River views and a fast-growing economy. Whether you're renting an apartment for your family, attending the University of Cincinnati or working at a Fortune 500 company like Procter & Gamble, Cincinnati makes a great place to call home.

 

Cincinnati Apartments and Neighborhoods

Housing options in Cincinnati range from high-rise communities in downtown to rental homes in the beautiful countryside. Stay near downtown's Fountain Square to experience the vibrant urban life of a walkable city, or rent an apartment overlooking the river in neighboring Covington, Kentucky. Students love University of Cincinnati neighborhoods like Corryville and University Heights, while families often prefer quieter suburbs like Deer Park and Blue Ash to the north and Delhi Township to the west. Want the best of both worlds? Look for apartments near the Hyde Park neighborhood to enjoy easy access to downtown and green spaces like the Krohn Conservatory.  

 

Cincinnati Transportation

Interwoven with I-71, I-74 and I-75, Cincinnati is a city of drivers. Commutes are shorter than the national average, though, and Cincinnati encourages bike use with projects like the Central Parkway Bikeway. Two bus systems help traffic by carrying about 20 percent of the city's daily commuters.
