Hello!

Question. We will be relocating to northern KY from Texas come July. We have a 10 year old daughter and trying to decide where to buy. Right now we are considering the following neighborhoods- Hearthstone in Florence, Cool Springs in Union or Thornwilde in Hebron.

If anyone has feedback regarding any of the neighborhoods mentioned - I would love to hear it.

Thanks in advance!

What? Why would you want to leave the Great State of Texas for Kentucky of all places?

Seriously, I'm saving up to bail from here as fast as I can for Texas!!!

In all seriousness, there isn't much difference in these three towns, except that Florence is the suburban commercial center of northern Kentucky. I don't know anything about these neighborhoods in particular. However, since Boone Co., where they are, is a suburban county and the names are all "suburbany," I wouldn't worry. All three towns are very nice, but I've always sensed a little "nose up in the air" aura about Florence and Hebron. My personal pick would be Union; BUT, if there is a job involved in downtown Cincinnati, Hebron and Florence are 10 miles from downtown whereas Union is about 18 miles.

All three towns are on the interstate system and provide direct access to CVG Airport, Downtown Cincy, Newport on the Levee, NKU, and all that region has to offer. All three are covered by Boone County Public Schools, have a VERY low crime rate, and have beautiful scenery.

All in all, NKY is my favorite area of Kentucky for living and leisure. I lived there briefly (in nearby Campbell Co.) and grew fond of it very quickly.

You really can't go wrong with any of those locations. They are all in nice parts of towns and in a good school district. You will close to the major mall, highways, and plenty of food.

Welcome to Kentucky. I'm glad you're leaving that horrible state of Texas and coming to something much greater! ;-)
Being from Keller, you should fit in nicely with the locations you are deciding between. Nice suburban communities with close amenities.
