I love how highland heights is located so close to 3 different thriving cities. We are about 15-30 minutes away from Newport, Cincinnati, and even Eastgate, Oh in the East. This allows me to have many adventures, and experience different cultures.

My only complaint is that you simply have to drive! I really wish there were more events near me besides NKU events. However, it's a small price to pay. It's a great city with many things to do and so many things around!

I love it in highland heights, it's not too busy and if you ever get too bored, Cincinnati is only like 15 minutes away and newport on the levee is a fun place to hangout as well! There are plenty of restaurants and fun places to hangout and it's not a big place so you don't really have to worry about being overrun by all the people here.
Great community, easy access to northern Kentucky university. Quiet and has a cute charm. I love it here!
