Moving to Cincinnati

I am 22 years old, and I will be moving to Cincinnati to work right after I graduate in May. I will be working downtown, and I would like to keep my commute under half an hour. Ideally, I would like a 1 BR/1 BA in a fun neighborhood (fun for me meaning restaurants, parks, shops, nightlife, etc.) in the $1,000/mo price range. Any advice on places that seem like a good fit for me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Mt. Adams is also popular with young professionals and will fit your budget. Ilived in Oakley/Mt. Lookout myself and loved both. Hyde Park requires a premium and is surrounded by the other two. There is much available right in downtown proper also. It is becoming the place to be but lacks a walkabe grocery desrination for another year or so.

Hyde Park is the best. Great walking neighborhood, shops, restaurants, lots of people your age. Beautiful. Oakley, its neighbor, is also a good place. Then there's Mt. Adams, within walking distance of downtown. Some are moving to Over the Rhine, which is literally downtown, but there are still issues there. Northern Kentucky communities (across Ohio River) are also convenient. Newport has many amenities. You might like Bellevue's Fairfield Avenue neighborhood. Both have apartments along,near the river. You'll find a lot of info online about Cincinnati neighborhoods. Best thing to do is visit and check them out for yourself. Good luck.

I would choose Oakley over Hyde Park. Oakley has a younger, hipper vibe. Hyde Park is more button down collar, private schoolish. Bellevue and Dayton, Ky are also nice, up and coming neighborhoods.

I think if I were 22 and moving here, I would look to areas like Mt. Lookout, Hyde Park and Oakley first. These are older neighborhoods that have a lot of modern shops and restaurants and they are fairly central in the greater Cincinnati metro area. If you want to be even closer to town, someone mentioned that the East End was making a comeback and Columbia Tusculum is in that same vacinity. You could also look at Mt. Adams, very close to Downtown with several restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

Fort Thomas, Ky is just across the river from downtown Cincinnati and a very short commute to downtown.
