This is a wonderful town for families with children. There are plenty of opportunities for great schools and quite a few parks and playgrounds. This is a much more quiet community and is very safe. It is about 15 miles from Cincinnati, so the commute time is decent. There are a lot of restaurants around and activities. Although the housing market is a little steep, the safety and security of the community along with the relative closeness to everything outweighs. Overall a great place to live!
Review Alexandria
I have grown up in Alexandria my entire life. I love this city because it is so close knit but also not. Alexandria is small, but not so small that you see the same people all the time. It is extremely diverse. It has an incredible school district (Campbell County Schools) that I have been extremely lucky to have been a part of.
This is my home town, it is forever flourishing with family owned businesses. It's also not far away from the major city and universities.
