In Hamilton County, the local businesses are the best, You can find anything you need all in one area. For example, I never need to go across the city to find a new outfit, shoes, a good restaurant, etc'. Everything you need is in a walking distance from each other. You can even use Western Hills Plaza as an example, you have Panda Express, an Eye-Mart, shoes store, a few retail stores like Rue21, Target, and TJMAX, then maybe you want to get your nails done? Well, you're in luck because there's a nail salon right next door. Now, you are looking to buy some home/dorm decor, so you walk right into Bed, Bath, and Beyond, you continue on and see art supply stores, dollar stores, shoes stores, etc'. You even have a large grocery store right across the street with a mini clinic and more restaurants. You have hair salons, a tattoo parlor, a sporting goods shop, electronic store, and a couple of gyms. All these businesses are well kept and look pretty trustworthy. I am proud to live in the West side of town because, well, we really do have everything!
Cincinnati has natural parks everywhere. Even in the city! They keep all parks very clean, they care for the parks wildlife, and keep the parks looking absolutely beautiful. We have trails in every park, and in most we have kayaking/canoeing accessibility. My absolute favorite park is Miami White Water! Miami has bike trails, a large pond for fishing and kayaking/canoeing, a water park for children, and even picnic/camping areas for your family to get together and have fun. I can always count on Cincinnati for a good park to go for a walk with beautiful views!
In Western Hills, you have restaurants and bars EVERYWHERE! On Glenway, you have Mexican, Greek, Chinese, BBQ, Italian, and other fancy European restaurants- and many of them allow you to buy so much for the cost of so little! For example, yesterday I went to Chopstick House and bought myself a big delicious meal of Beef Lo Mein and 2 Spring Rolls ending in the cost of $6.04. It's crazy how affordable that is! Let's say you went for the evening with a few friends and just finished dinner, now you're all thinking of going out for some drinks and can't seem to know of a good bar. Well, you're in luck! In Cheviot you have a large variety of bars, there's more than a handful of them in one spot. On the weekends you drive by the bars and almost all of them are packed before ten o'clock. I may not be a drinker myself, but every time I drive by those bars at night I can't help but think that we must have some pretty good beer and nightlife businesses!
