Married mid-30's professional here....

If I was a few years younger and single w/out kid, I would absolutely pick Mount Adams......Definitely a bit older feel than the 21 and 22 yr old vibe in Covington/Newport. It has an all around classier feel than Covington/Newport.

If Mount Adams is to far away and Covington/Newport area is a must, the first place I'd start looking is in eastern Covington towards Greenup St. On the river there are some really nice apartments/homes. I had some professional friends live at Roebling Place. I think it was around $900 for a 2 bedroom. I remember some of the Reds lived there etc... Also close to some bars and walking distance to the stadiums/downtown Cincy.

Florence/ Erlanger is a bit more family oriented. Almost completely suburban. I am looking forward to moving back there sometime in the next few years. But I got the family to think about

If it wasn't for the family I'd be all over Mount Adams.

It makes sense now. All I want is everything, and I can't have it anywhere! *sigh*
Sarah, my question regarding diversity had more to do with people's tolerance of anything different from themselves. Thanks for your excellent answer.
It sounds like my best bet is to find a comfortable residence in the suburbs around Fort Mitchell or Florence and drive up to Mount Adams and other such areas in Cincinnati every once in a while. Since everyone speaks so highly of Hyde Park and Mount Adams, I am tempted to check them out as well, even if it would add another 20-25 minutes of commute each way. And Wilson, I do understand that cabs are much cheaper than DUIs Thanks for your input!
Been to Cincinnati twice, and felt a positive vibe. Looking forward to making this area my home for the next few years and making new friends!
Thanks everyone.

You'd love Hyde Park, but I couldn't recommend that commute every day.

Best wishes for your move. It sounds like you're thoughtful and will land in the best place for you. I'm constantly urging transplants to the area to try to find a suitable home close to their jobs, cause I grew up with a dad who really suffered from an extremely long commute (for folks familiar with the area, between our home in far western Colerain Township to Evendale). There are tons of nice apartments in the Florence area, and Ft. Mitchell is also a lovely community. Rents there I'm pretty sure will be cheaper than Hyde Park or Mt. Adams, but certainly a lot of YPs consider those neighborhoods the place to be.

Hope you come back and let us know how things work out!

What would you do with a nice car down there? Or visitors? Its kind of a one dimensional place. Great bars do not make a great neighborhood.
I never measured it, but I think the nearest business place of any sort is five blocks from my apartment building -- which is better than a lot of them, except it's an old folks' home.

I'm going to add as I've stated many times before that Cincinnati is behind the times when it comes to trends regarding walkable neighborhoods. Nice ones do exist but not like in many other larger more gentrified cities. Transit is a bit lacking too considering the age and build of the city, sadly you have to use taxis if you are out on the town and Cincy's are a bit on the expensive side.

However, for your case I would strongly recommend going to the Riverside Historic District (Roebling Point is an apartment complex there), in Covington, my brother lives there he's in his early 30s and the neighborhood is very safe, its very walkable (there even is an old style grocery a few blocks away) and mainstrasse or downtown Cincinnati (right across the bridge) are close by for bars, depending on your scene). The crowd is a bit older than Mt Adams, but its a good mix of professionals generally. Your rent requirements would get you a really nice place there as Cincinnati is dirt cheap and even expensive areas like there rents are generally less than 1500 a month. At least according to my brother you'll get more bang for your buck there too, the apartments tend to be larger and nicer than in Mt. Adams.
