Yeah. Most small towns around the casino are pretty good and safe and you won't have much to worry about. You shouldn't experience much, if any, discrimination.

Middletown is a dump, avoid it. Middletown is "diverse" but it's a poo-hole.

Just look at a map. One thing about the area that the racino is in is that it's suburban and is pretty commutable from anywhere.

Monroe is the city that the racino is in and is OK.
West Chester and Liberty Township. (Big suburban area. I'd focus here.)
Trenton (smaller town, probably fewer housing options)
Mason
Lebanon

Farther out, closer to Cincinnati (suburbs):

Loveland
Hamilton
Fairfield
Springdale

I still say, avoid Middletown.

Hamilton and Loveland would both be kinda terrible commutes for someone who's not used to this area.

If you want to go North towards Dayton (instead of South towards Cincinnati) - Springboro is not that far (12miles??) and there's a decent amount of development going on up there.

Personally - I'd focus on Liberty Twp/Westchester Twp - in the Lakota School District (good school district) which is just South of the Casino location along I-75

Or I'd go Due East to Lebanon (also good school district).

Monroe is still really just an intersection. There's very little there. I assume their schools are okay, but its such a small town (and very rural) that there might not be very many activities for your kids. Same with Franklin (small town just North of Casinos). Trenton is way far out (compartively thinking) and very rural.


Comparing Lebanon to Liberty Twp/Westchester Twp - you'll get a more diverse population in WestChester/Liberty -- because there are more transplants there. Lebanon -- the newer population is more diverse, but Lebanon itself is still pretty non-diverse. (Though I'd hope open minded, but I have no knowledge of that).

Good luck with the move. I drive by your new work place (the Racino) every day. Its in the middle of a farm field right now, but I hope they'll landscape eventually.

Most assuredly not. Quite a few older residents with any money or status behave exactly like southern plantation owners: They're on top and you defer to them, supposedly. It's kind of a pattern - I've run into it a few times.

The 200s of W.

I live near there but far enough away from that circus to not be affected.

Also the area east of Broadway and north of E. Warren can be kind of sketchy too but not as bad as it used to be.

Those people own businesses in town and are special, they are better than everyone else, they are never wrong and poop ice cream.

Try to get a pass to see a Republican presidential candidate speak in Lebanon during the next election cycle. You will be kissing some serious posterior orifice (yay! got it past the auto censor ) of the local small town gentry to make it happen. Lebanon is a closed minded small town.

The area right around the Post Office on New Street is dicey. Not horrible in big city terms but you can do a lot better around town.
