Alexandria is a very close-knit community which is, in general, very resistant to change. Alexandria ranges from populated suburbs on the north side and rural, spacious land on the south side. In general, Alexandria is a relatively affluent part of Northern Kentucky. The individuals within the community have a close-knit bond - everyone knows everyone, and many families have known each other for generations. This closeness may also contribute to the stifled growth of the city. Many community members believe that the city should attempt to invest more in its own growth. However, over the last two years, there have been several boutiques move in, a yoga studio, and even a brewery. I find this very promising, as these types of establishments appeal to younger folks who bring new ideas to the community. Overall, Alexandria is a wonderful, very peaceful place to live that can provide almost any type of environment for any age group.

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!
Alexandria is growing quickly and is a good community to be a part of. There is a huge entertainment gap, with a few parks, a bowling center, and a roller rink/event center, however there are plenty of entertainment options in areas within a 30-45 minutes drive.
