Although I love where I love and I would choose to live here all over again, it is quite the small town and can sometimes be boring. However, it is only 30 minutes away from Cincinnati where there is plenty of things to do if you are willing to make the commute. The people here are generally friendly and the town is a great big family if something devastating or amazing happens. Everyone is supportive of one another.
Review Bright
This is a very small town, so there is not much competition among the different types of businesses. We have one bank, one laundromat, a Dollar General, a drug store, a McDonalds, a Subway, three hair salons, three bar-n-grills and one sit down Mexican restaurant. We have a little of everything, but not a lot of anything.
This is a very small town, so the job opportunities in the area are a bit scarce. There are a few restaurants for younger people to get their first job, and other career jobs, like doctors office, veterinary office, banks, landscaping, and day care, but not many places where you can find high paying career jobs.
