I was hoping to find out some information on Florence KY. I live in downtown Cincinnati right now, but my husband and I are researching a move to the Florence area next year. We are new to the area and I want to find out what Florence is like i.e. things to do, what is close, perks about living in that area...any help would be great thanks!

Coming from someone that's in FLO a lot ...

Chains after chains.

Anti-pedestrian friendly.

Poor development planning.

Zero character.

Other than that ... it seems like it's growing steadily, but I think gas in the next 5 years is going to change the way all new development is planned.

It really depends on who you are....your personality, what you like, the type of things you want in your environment, and any specific needs you may have. For example, quality of schools, access to parks, cost of living, etc. Perhaps it would be best to give us a bit more information so we can better answer you.

And BTW....simply because there are some people that think it has zero character, that doesn't mean it's true. It's all a matter of perspective.

Florence has good schools, Boone County, Ryle, Conner, Cooper, all public, has good parks, and tons of shops.

Mall road, movie theaters, mall, coffee shops, a water park, ect. You are close to everything that is anything in NKY. You can get to Newport on the Levee or down to Covington in minutes.

If you disagree with this statement then please post some examples. I would love to see them! I'm being serious ... I would honestly go by and see it for myself!

You're the one that says it has zero character, so why don't you explain what "character" means to you? As I said, it's all a matter of perspective, Cincy-Rise. But since you mentioned the whole concept first, it's on YOU to provide the examples of what has "zero character", and allow others to determine if they agree with your definition.

Perhaps you would like to elaborate on what you consider to be character.
