Concrete and condominiums! Anything you want except for parks and recreation is close by, but if you want to sit at a picnic table and eat lunch, forget it. Hike a trail? Only if you live in a condominium community. LOOOOONG stop lights since there is just SO much traffic! Get used to waiting through 2 stoplights at many of the intersections. It is always a pleasure to drive away from Florence to go back home.

Florence is small, dense, and busy, but you can't beat having everything in one place. My wife and I live off I-75 and it only takes 5-10 minutes to get to anything we want - movie theaters, restaurants, grocery stores, malls, it's all here. Traffic can get bad on Mall Road on the weekends, but otherwise it flows pretty well. The city keeps everything well maintained and clean, and they put a lot of work into community spaces and amenities. It's a great place to live!
Florence is a Northern Kentucky Suburb that is minutes away from downtown Cincinnati and close to many job opportunities. The areas public schools are varied but are usually at the national average as far as curriculum. You can find great neighborhoods to live in with lots of shopping and restaurants and you are very close to CVG, Cincinnati's international airport. Overall it's a nice place to live!
