It’s a quiet and safe area. Great for starting a family. It’s close to just about everything. The commute is great not a lot of traffic. There is a great source of restaurants here. Many chains are starting to move in like Cracker Barrel, raising canes, and chipotle’s. Several really nice parks and playgrounds. There are many great groups and clubs around such as 4h, silver sneakers, gardening clubs, and many family friendly groups.

I love Cold Spring. It is a close-knit community where everyone knows who you are and care about you. It is also a safe community with little crime. It is a great area to raise children and start a family. Cold Spring is also close to a lot of great restaurants and shopping centers, and it is close to Cincinnati, where there are numerous things to do. There are many great schools around Cold Spring, as well. Overall, I think that Cold Spring is a great community.
I currently reside in Cold Spring Ky and it is indeed, a beautiful town to live in and raise your family there. There is a strong sense of community in this town and everyone looks out for everyone. The public schools are really great as well. The only thing I do not like is the lack of diversity in this town. I believe diversity is essential to help learn about other cultures and ways of life. If you do not have diversity you kind of feel like you live in a bubble.
