My wife has family in Springboro. About 30 minutes North of Downtown. I think it has a walkable feel to it.

A number of small, close-net communities exist both within the city and around the I-275 loop. It would be helpful to know what part of cincy you'll be working and how far you might be willing to drive. Also consider northern ky -- many small, attractive towns there.

Harlem is a walkable community. Most of us who are competent to respond to you know nothing of sewickley. Do you want us to research sewickley in order to respond to you?

Cincinnati is a large metro area of nearly two million people. There are dozens and dozens of communities. You can find urban, suburban, sub-rural and everything in between. We have neighborhoods built in 1860 or 1980. There are many nice school districts; some people do private schooling.

If you take a minute to think about what you are looking for then our crack team can provide some very detailed responses.

Short of that, the hot Cincinnati suburbs right now are Mason, Loveland, and Maineville. I think they all have some type of walkable Towne Centre

I think you'd be very happy with Mariemont, Maderia, Terrace Park and parts of Milford & Loveland. They all have an inclusive village feel.

Agreed. I have always liked Ft. Thomas on the Kentucky side. It has that feel too.

Had to identify where Sewickley, PA is in order to respond. According to the info I found, Sewickley is West-Northwest 12 miles from Pittsburgh along the Ohio River. So it must be West towards the Ohio border. You original post states it has ton of school options. The info I found lists the population in 2000 at less than 4,000. Just how many options can you have in a population oif 4,000?

I am not intending to knock it at all, as the information I reviewed indicated it as a very pleasant place to live. But several of the smaller neighborhoods along the Ohio river in Cincinnati, both on the Ohio and Ky side of the river, both East and West, must be able to offer something comparable to what you have been experiencing and apparently prefer.

Loveland is a very nice town, but the Little Miami is not the Ohio. That said, downtown Loveland preserves some of the village attributes you request. It is a matter of finding a home there both within your budget and your preferences.

I second that. Lived there most of my life, it's a great community.
