All About

Living In 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 are 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.

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. Bus systems help traffic by carrying about 20 percent of the city’s daily commuters.


Housing options in Cincinnati range from high-rise apartments 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 the University of Cincinnati neighborhoods like Corryville and University Heights. Just east of downtown, Mount Washington is also known for the high quality of its educational institutions. Check out these great neighborhoods for apartments in Cincinnati:

  • Downtown: Cincinnati has a great, livable downtown area with more than 13,000 residents who enjoy quick access to shops, restaurants and nightlife.
