Tucked away along the northern border of the city of Cincinnati lies the neighborhood of College Hill, an area that was once called Pleasant Hill thanks to its prime location. The area was named after two colleges, Belmont College and Ohio Female College, which got their start in the area during the mid-19th century. Today, those looking for apartments in College Hill will find a quiet and beautiful area that is removed from the hustle and bustle of the downtown center but still within reach of all the amenities the city has to offer. Here are a few benefits of choosing to move to this corner of the country.
Cincinnati is something of a crossroads on the Ohio-Kentucky border, and individuals who decide to rent a College Hill apartment will find that getting around is quite easy in a city where five major highways converge. The city is within 600 miles, or one day's travel time, of 30 major metropolitan areas, so those wishing to take a vacation or wishing to explore the area can do so at their leisure.
The Cincinnati Reds are one of the oldest franchises in Major League Baseball and are beloved by their dedicated fanbase. Great American Ballpark ranks among the top stadiums in the U.S. and even if new residents aren't major Reds fans, they should be sure to catch a game at the park and explore the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame & Museum. The museum showcases the many great players that wore the uniform with memorial plaques and historical artifacts, as well as kid-themed exhibits like an interactive radio booth, a pitching mound and a clubhouse that allows kids to dress up like their favorite players.
A great way for residents to explore their new city is by taking a trip down to the Cincinnati Riverwalk, a four-mile trail that stretches from the city all the way across the Kentucky border. The trail offers stunning views of the Cincinnati skyline, as well as a bevy of restaurants, bars and myriad other attractions that could certainly pique the interest of newcomers and longtime residents alike.
