We are moving from sunny South Florida to Cincinnati in June. We live in a predominantly diverse part of Miami where Spanish and Creole can be heard just about anywhere. We want A+ schools, parks, friendly neighborhoods, etc. My husband wants a small commute from downtown. We have heard about Blue Ash, Mason, and Westchester. What can we expect from Cincinnati?

If you want really good schools and okay diversity then I suggest Blue Ash/Montgomery. If you want decent schools and really good diversity then I suggest Evendale/Glendale/Springdale.

None of the cities you mention will be a quick commute to downtown. City of Cincinnati schools have a bad rap, but there are some gems in there, including the magnet schools (Montessori or language- or arts-focused) and Kilgour, which serves the Hyde Park, Mt. Lookout, and Madisonville neighborhoods.

No place in Cincinnati is diverse in the way that the big cities are. As the PP mentioned, you'll get more diversity in further-out areas, but the area is still mostly white.

Some neighborhoods that would meet your other criteria are Mariemont (very, very white, and Catholic, too) and Wyoming. Depending on your budget, Terrace Park might be a match. Closer in would be the aforementioned Hyde Park and Mt. Lookout. Clifton is as diverse as Cincinnati gets and has a fabulous downtown area with movie theatre, grocery store, excellent restaurants, etc., but it is city schools (again, not a deal-breaker, but look closely at your options). It is very friendly but IMO short on parks.

Im looking to relocate from Nashville, Tn. I have three girls 6,7,and 9. How is the school system in Cinncinnati? Is the cost of living reasonable? What about the jobs in the administrative field? How is the pay rate? I'm also will be transferring to a 4 year college, do Cinncinnati have good colleges? If so which one?

Default moving to Cincinnati

I second either Mariemont or Terrace Park. At least look at them.. because most of the people who move here say the same thing... once you look at them and understand the benefits, you can't imagine living anywhere else. I know at least 50 families who could easily afford to live in a more ritzy neighborhood (Indian Hill, etc) but stay because of the neighborhood. Local elementary school with test scores off the charts good, two preschools right in the neighborhood, all the sports are right here (which is a big deal time wise... no driving to practice and to most games). Serious support from your neighbors. And, the houses range from about 200K (now probably a little less) to 2 or 3 million, so you do get diversity. Where else do you see 4 year olds riding their bikes to their friends without an adult? I saw a kid fall off her bike riding home from school, and literally 5 cars stopped in 30 seconds to help and make sure she was OK.

Terrace Park has one of the highest, if not the highest homicide rate in the region for this year, over double the rate of the City of Cincinnati.
