I have been looking at Montomery, westchester and mason, however i really dont know too much about the area of cincy. Could anyone please provide me assistance.

I love to be outdoors, fishing, biking, hiking, all of it.
As far as the outdoors go, Loveland would be great for you as well as Warren County. The Little Miami and Countryside bike trails run through here and are both very popular. Loveland has a nice little downtown and a few good restaurants along the trail. Also, canoeing and kayaking is popular on the Little Miami River that runs along the trail. Caesar's Creek State Park/Lake is most popular for hiking in the area, but Hueston Woods, East Fork and John Bryan State Park as well as the Great Miami are also popular among outdoor enthusiasts. If you do decide to stay closer to the city, Cincy and Hamilton County both have great park systems. In general, the areas closer to the city (Hyde Park, Mount Lookout and Adams, Oakley,and Columbia Tusculum) would have more younger people but a lot are still out in the burbs if you are looking in the right places. Though many younger people live in these urban areas, some just come down to these areas in the evening for the nightlife, not all live there.

Are you wanting to rent or buy? There are a lot of apartment complexes in Fairfield, West Chester, and Mason in which you'll find a decent concentration of younger renters. Plus, West Chester/Butler County offers you a nice assortment of hiking/walking/biking trails, as well as Hueston Woods for fishing and boating. I would think Oxford would be an ideal place for you, although it's rather quiet during the summer when the kids are out of college. But during the schools months, it's a really great place. Warren County is another really great option if you like outdoors stuff.

I would probably rent first then look for a place to buy, as it depends on how long i am going to be in the area for. Right now, renting sounds like the best option, though i have looked at lake houses in the area.

Since i will travel a LOT for my job, im not too worried about the summer months, since i am going to be on the road 1-2 days a week probably. i would like to be somewhat near the interstate since i cover 3 states for my territory, OH, IN, KY....

Does anyone know of any specific apartment complexes or areas of town where the most yonger people live in the burbs such as loveland

I grew up in mason, but as a 20some I find it kind of boring. I has some nice bars but not much more than that for a social life. It would be a fantastic place to raise a family, but not a great place to meet people.

I think that Hyde Park would be the best bet. It is a perfect town for singles.

If you like the 'Truman Show' and the lifestyle portrayed in the movie, you'll love Mason.

Anywhere along the northern part of the 275 belt would have "potential," especially Sharonville, Fairfield, and Forest Park. So would the two almost-new complexes on the Woodlawn/Glendale line. By definition, apartment/condo "communities" have more than their share of unattached tenants, skewing under 35 age-wise. Although not walkable, Fairfield does boast a considerable number of franchise-type restaurant/bars as well as a Showcase cineplex and has the Gilmore Ponds conservation area for "getting back to nature." Some nice clusters of apartments and townhouses have opened along West Kemper in Forest Park, with no view to e-mail home about but close proximity to Winton Woods. The "communities" in Sharonville aren't recent in vintage, but are well-kept for the most part and are near Sharon Woods. In Woodlawn, there's not only a short drive/bike to Winton Woods, but also the Trillium Trails preserve which is the new hot place to be for walkers and bicyclists. All of the above locations are not far from, if not "right at," 275.

Hyde Park in Cinci is the en vogue area for childless professionals, and Clifton and Oakley are popular for UC/XU students, but frankly... there are nice, newer apartment complexes in Blue Ash, Mason, Montgomery, etc.

Sharonville, Fairfield, and Forest Park, Winton Woods, Woodlawn, and Lincoln Heights are for the most part lower-middle class to lower class neighborhoods. Woodlawn and Lincoln Heights are predominantely African American with plenty of older folks.
