Harrison is an excellent upper class city for families and working professionals that prefer the suburb life, clean air and nature.

Miami Whitewater Park is the largest park in Hamilton County and conveniently located here in this close knit community.

Southwest Local School District is fantastic and the population is growing at a rapid rate— unlike ever seen before! The school district is currently building a brand new High School, Jr. School and Elementary, and massive renovations to the football stadium, thanks to the Cincinnati Bengals and private donors!

Crime is basically non-existent, the streets are very well patrolled and I never feel in danger by any means. In fact, most of the police know the community members fantastically well.

Overall, Harrison is a fantastic city to live, 25-minutes away from Downtown Cincinnati and 25-minutes away from CVG Airport.

Harrison is a tight-nit community. There are many people who have many different opinions and beliefs but everyone gets along. In my 4 years of high school I truly have not witnessed one account of bullying, the school treated my special needs sister very well, and the school does its best to get young adults prepared for the real world. The upkeep of Harrison is generally nice. Although it could be prettier, it's a work in progress. I haven't met any unpleasant workers at any store, restaurant, gas station, etc. Harrison's community is always changing but one thing is for sure the old time politeness has always stayed the same.
I enjoy living in Harrison. When I was younger, it was a smaller town where everyone knew everyone, which helped to make close connections with others. Over the years, Harrison has grown and more families have moved and built lives here. More businesses are being built; however, I would like there to be a few more dine-in/sit down restaurants and entertainment options to choose from.
