You could just live anywhere that fits your fancy. If you insist on not creating your own diversity, I recommend Hartwell.

I totally appreciate the thought. Living in L.A., I have an hour plus commute, each way, to-and-from work, which makes your suggestion tempting. However, I think moving to a homogeneous neighborhood in the South is going to be too much of a culture shock for us.

Compared to LA standards, a commute to CVG from anywhere in the Cincinnati area won't be a problem, I assure you.

At some point in your time here you'll probably overhear Cincinnatians cursing up and down about traffic, and you'll be asking yourself, "what traffic?"

We don't need a luxury home in a high-end neighborhood. Just would like something middle class, safe, and clean. I think my biggest concern is finding a neighborhood with a bit of diversity. What should we expect in regards to ethnic and cultural diversity?

You said you want a safe city, yet you plan on moving to Cincinnati... You've just contradicted yourself.

Cincinnati regularly ranks in the top 20 in terms of most dangerous cities in the United States. In years when it doesn't rank in the top 20, it is still in the top 30.

If you have a family, assuming you care about their safety, moving to Cincinnati is reckless and irresponsible. I would suggest finding some nice place in the adjacent county of Clermont, and commute to Cincinnati if your job is located inside city limits.

There are a number of cities in Ohio that you couldn't pay me enough to live in...

Cleveland
Cincinnati
Dayton
Columbus
Toledo
Akron
Youngstown

Most of those cities have repeatedly made the list of the top 25 most dangerous cities in the nation. Check the 2007 list! Youngstown, Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Dayton, all four made the list.

When people talk about diversity, what they typically mean is cosmetic diversity, as in people who have a different skin color and are immediately recognizable as being different.

What they often ignore is intellectual diversity, diversity of thoughts/opinions/values/ideas, etc.

When you're in Ohio, you'll find that the state is a majority White state, but you'll find that the Whites are from backgrounds such as Italian, Russian, Croatian, French, German, English, Irish, etc. These people are hardly carbon copies of each other. Likewise you'll find rural dwellers, city folks, suburbanites, and people who have ideas ranging from conservative and liberal, to libertarian or constitutionalist. There's no lack of diversity of ideas and values in Ohio.

If all you mean when you say "diversity" is "few white people" then you might be served by moving to Detroit, New York City, or simply staying in Los Angeles.

The idea that people in Ohio, just because it is a majority White state, are all the same and have no diversity amongst themselves, is pernicious, incorrect, and it is an insult to people who have a wide variety of ideas and beliefs.
