Fort Mitchell is a classic American suburb. The school is excellent, one of the best in Kentucky. Not a place for adventurous spirits, however. A great place to raise a family!

Loved the small town vibe. Very tight knit community! Everything you could ask for is in a 5 minute driving radius
I love this area. The apartments are nice, my favorite Mexican restaurant is within walking distance, Cincinnati is 5 minutes away, and the people are extremely friendly. The only thing I would change is the crazy construction that is happening everywhere. There is major construction on the interstate that makes my commute to work 10-20 minutes longer and every time I find a new way to take there, they start construction on that road too.
