We currently live in the Northern VA area and work in and around the DC area. I am looking at starting a new job later this year or early 2019, which is situated near Ft. Mitchell, KY. I was advised I could live on either side, i.e. the Northern, KY side or the Cincinnati, OH side. This may be a permanent move for 10 years or more, who knows maybe retirement.

We have 3 kids, 8,6,3. My oldest is also competitive gymnastics. My wife is in the medical field.

Please share with me your thoughts why we should choose the Northern KY side, and which part i.e. based on schools, area, opportunities, family life, etc.

Traffic going into Cincy from N.KY is awful at the usual times, and roadwork is always going on in that area. You'd be saving yourself a headache with the commute from the start. A good friend of mine has a family in N.KY and loves it.

I know the Edgewood area is very nice, and has been ranked highly in reviews & articles. Fort Thomas is where my buddy lives, it's also a nice area. Also try Bellevue, Edgewood, Villa Hills, Park Hills, and Highland Heights. For your wife in the medical field, there are A LOT of hospitals and such in the area, she should have no issues finding something

I don't spend a ton of time there, but hopefully this can help get you started

All the amenities of Cincinnati, but lower crime rate.

Which license plate do you like the best? All joking aside, the two areas are basically the same. NKY is simply an extension of Cincinnati.

Some key differences to keep in mind...personal property tax is higher in KY so when you register a vehicle you will pay a 6% tax to do so on the value of the vehicle.

Auto Insurance rates are significantly higher in KY compared to Ohio.
Gas is usually cheaper in KY.

Far better off in Northern KY, if you can locate somewhere that you will be able to drive to work without using the interstate it would be worth it, I-71/75 is a lot worse than I-275.

Thank you very much for the reply. My wife and I read it together, and it was very helpful. We are going to research the areas you suggested.

Thanks, ha ha, yes I've heard this quite a bit i.e. "pick a license plate." Taxes are a good consideration and I think we're trying to figure out which schools are the best. Thanks for the reply

Default Definitely NKY

Strongly consider NKY vs Cinti fo following reasons: Property taxes considerably lower, less traffic, close proximity to airport, all major highways intersect in NKY, good schools, low crime, downtown Cinti is very close, & you can get anywhere in Cinti from NKY quicker than from within Cinti. All of these benefits & more with access to all of Cinti events & amenities: major league teams, museums, great food, shopping, festivals,
