During the time I have lived in Cheviot Ohio, I have mostly stayed at home. I suffered a trauma i induced stroke two years ago, and am currently physically changed. Within my walking distance, there is a Family Dollar store, a bank, and a vape shop. I am close to many retail stores on the west side of Cincinnati. I consider Cheviot to be a nice middle class neighborhood.
Cheviot is a safe neighborhood to raise your children. The resources and local church facilities are amazing and extremely helpful. I have been a resident of Cheviot for 6 years and I must say that my stay has been wonderful. All of your grocery, house hold and craft needs are in one location central. The neighborhood is so safe that you can leave your valuables on the porch without someone taking them, I can vouch for that statement. Cheviot is kept clean all property well maintained and occupied, you will not see trash in the street or property that is not managed well. People are friendly and always happy to help. I sit on my porch in Cheviot and literally fall asleep the neighborhood is very peaceful and relaxing. The perfect place to raise your children, also the Amazing private school St Martians has an amazing reputation in Academics starting with preschool aged children. Harvest home park is famous for a great deal of events, Parades Carnivals all types of entertainment .
