Hamilton is a cute little town on the outskirts of Cincinnati. I’ve lived here for almost three years now, and have enjoyed the experience. Downtown Hamilton offers fun, family friendly options for food and entertainment, and the community is safe and friendly. Come to Hamilton!

I have lived in Hamilton for around 3 years now. It didn't have the best reputation, but since I've been here I've seen so many improvements and positive feedback about the city. They have built free water parks in multiple local parks/playgrounds in the city, which are great to take the kids to in the summer! They also host free concerts on the riverfront in the summer, too. There are beautiful sculptures all over the city, and it's home to a nice little coffee shop and some delicious doughnut shops too!
I love this city. It is going through a big revitalization. Has a population of 60,000. While I love this place, it is not because of leadership but because of the people. The city is highly diversified however segregation is terrible between cultures, race, and economic standing. It is sad to see. There are not a lot of jobs. The rich get richer and they get whatever they want. IT's not Cincinnati or Dayton... They are much better for a lot of reasons like this.
