Look at a used Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, or similar small car with a history of longevity. If you stick close to work with the apartment, the cost of car operation is minimized.
I agree. I was just stating the conditions under which such a lifestyle is possible.

It may be possible to find a place to live within biking distance of an employment place in Sharonville that is legitimately served by a bus route...but unless one is really committed, working in Sharonville probably means owning a car.

Hey, we agree. Since the OP has not divulged the actual employer in Sharonville, we cannot give specific recommendations on whether a bike would work. But overall I think we would say no, you might freeze your little tushie off or be gasping in a raincoat.

There are some apartments in the vicinity of Sharon Woods which are nice and some down near Reading. Overall, Sharonville is a car required area unless your tolerance and constitution are way above normal.

Hey there! I am so sorry I haven't checked back in sooner....thank you all for all the great replies!
Here is my latest update...we spent the last few days in the Blue Ash area looking at rental property & schools. We were super-impressed our tour of Sycamore High School. It is apparently top notch. We looked at 5 properties & narrowed our choices to 2 places....a townhouse in the Montgomery area & a house off Hunt road in Blue Ash. The rent is a little higher than I was hoping for, but it's still within my budget. Now that we have visited and learned a little about the area, we are all more at ease about the move.
We do have a car....the only reason I mentioned the public transportation is because my son needs to find a job in the area. He has a bike, or we could eventually buy him a decent used car.
The only thing we didn't get to do on our trip was visit downtown Cincy. I hope to eventually find a generous 'local' who is willing to show us all the great things to see. It will just take time to figure out the whole city.
Thanks to everyone for all your great replies!

Best wishes on your move. I think you'll be happy with your choices. And yes, Sycamore schools are one of the most highly regarded districts in the area.

Truer words have never been spoken! In my experience, Cincinnati reveals itself and all its charms slowly. It's been one of my favorite parts of living here. Good luck with your move!

LostGirl...

I believe you will enjoy any of the selections in Blue Ash or Montgomery. Both are a reasonably short commute to the Sharonville area and the Sycamore Schools are top notch. It is good you are looking forward to coming to the Cincinnati area, and you will enjoy it.

Once you are here and settled in there are many facets to explore around Cincinnati. I personally am glad you have made the choice of living close to where you work, minimize the commute, time and costs, and enjoy the living environment with that son of yours.

I am always being bashed because I advocate live where you work. The last part of my working career I was only a little over 1/2 mile from the business. What a hassle free existence that was. I could get up at 7:30 AM, shower, shave, dress and still be at my office by 8:00 AM

If you are going to be working in the City then consider living in the City. If you are going to be working in the suburbs than consider living in the suburbs. Make life simple.

Best wishes on your transition.
