These are the Cincinnati-Dayton area suburbs. They have a true a mixture of rural, residential, industrial, and main street vibes. There’s Oxford’s red brick “private ivy” campus, concerts on Hamilton’s RiversEdge, Apple and Jazz Festivals in downtown Lebanon, with Friday night football games across the board. They offer a good mix of small town, farm town, and growing city feels. Their Main Streets are walkable, but their districts are expansive. If you’re a growing family or looking to live in-between Cincinnati and Dayton, you might especially be drawn here.
