I am contemplating a move to the suburbs of Cincinnati. I would like advise on good public/private schools and housing options. We presently live in the East Coast and would like to know if children raised in the East Coast will be able to adjust to life, schooling and social conditions within Ohio? Is it easy to make friends when we move into Ohio? Does one's race and ethnicity matter in adjusting to life in Ohio? Any experiences of moving from the East Coast into the suburbs of Cincinnati would help.

I am from Philadelphia, and I have never once had a problem getting to know/make friends here. Ohio is no Iowa or Nebraska. Ohio has major cities, large universities, and a diverse group of people call it home. It's cultured and has a beautiful landscape. I really like it here, and have met plenty of people from the East Coast that have moved here as well. There are a lot moving here from the east, and they really like it. Like I said, they have big cities and culture, but the people are more laid back here, and things are not always so rush, rush, rush.

Your kids should have no problem adjusting to the schools. There are plenty of great school systems in SW Ohio, from large and small, to very diverse. You just have to find the right one that fits your interests.

BTW, I am african american, and have had no problem as well. My neighbors to the right of me are white, and to the left are asian. I live in a diverse neighborhood, and everyone gets along. Just mowed my yard yesterday, and stopped to talk to my neighbor for 45 mins. I think you will like it. I have really gotten to like the area since moving from Philly, and really have no desire to move back east.
