I will be moving to Cincinnati this june as i take a new sales territory for my job. I am looking for an area where i will be able to meet other single mid 20's while still staying out of the center of the urban areas. 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.

Mason and West Chester are booming suburbs, they are growing quite rapidly. They are very nice suburbs, and close to a lot of new shops, restaurants, and housing developments. West Chester just opened up its new Ikea.

If you are younger though, I would look more into Cincinnati itself. There are some great new lofts downtown, and some of the inner ring suburbs would be nice too.

I live in West Chester, so if there is anything specific you'd like to know, feel free to ask. I'm single, though quite a bit older than you. Nevertheless, I know Butler County pretty well and can fill you in on what you'd like to know about WC.

Depending on your definition of an urban area, your goal might not be realistic. The highest concentration of young people is towards the center of town, and the far suburbs are mostly families. I know a few 20-somethings who transfered to Cincy and absolutely HATED living in Mason because it was too isolated and geared to families.

Oakley is a nice little neighborhood with a decent concentration of 20-somethings. But it's small-lot houses that probably average about 1/10th of an acre, and it's only 6 miles from downtown. I can imagine some people with your criteria who would still consider that "urban." Actually, since Cincy is a relatively old city, pretty much anything within city limits would probably seem urban to someone from the sunbelt, for example.

You could probably live in an apartment complex in Kenwood or maybe somewhere a bit East of city limits. It would still feel suburban, but you'd be within close range of neighborhoods with younger people.

Covington is very urban. Loveland is very family.

You might check out Sharonville. Centrally located on the north side of town, with easy access to the major expressways. When I was younger and single I lived at Paige East Apartments in Sharonville. While the apartment was fair at best, the location made it easy to get anywhere I wanted be for work or whatever.

Not true. It's not "all families" here in the suburbs. There are many single people, trust me....yes, even those in their twenties. We can't assume that simply because someone is single and in their 20s that it automatically means they want to be in an "urban, coffeebar, bars/nightlife, walk everywhere" environment.

good point, that was an over-generalization
