My husband and I have been looking into moving to Newport. Just from what we have seen online, it looks like a great town, but we will not be able to make it up there for a visit for another month. Does anyone have any input on the town, any pros and cons? We are curious to see if it will be worth the visit up there. Any help would be appreciated!!

I like Newport. If you want to live there then I assume you'll want either a condo or an old house.

You might want to look at Ft Thomas to live in .. or come by my neck of the woods to Villa Hills/Ft Mitchell area (zip 41017). I have a 2700SF house for sale, 4 bedroom,3 bath and finished basement.. willing to rent for reasonable price if you want some options while you look to buy.

Traysea.

Oh, and to answer your question, Newport has a great waterfront area and some nifty restaurants and nightlife. I like Covington a bit more for living.. but I am biased. I really do like going to Newport to party when we have the kids with the in-laws.

Both Newport and Covington are quaint towns. I like being so close to downtown. We have an excellent fireworks over labor day.. you should try to make it up for that and you'll get a great sense of our community!

Good luck!!!

Default We are thinking of moving, too.

My wife and I are also considering this move. We live across the river in a Cincinnati suburb now, but visit Newport often for recreation. It's a river town that has undergone an amazing transition.
Labor day fireworks are amazing, but it's kind of nutty with so many people.
I'm checking into the costs: There is a 2.5% payroll tax for those working in the city, a moderate occupational tax if you have a business, and of course property taxes. Duke Energy is a great help giving you a "even-billing" utility cost for wherever you're moving.
The folks at the city finance department have been very helpful with kin of stuff. They're at :: City of Newport, Kentucky ::
Be glad to exchange information if you want.
