Kenwood is a lovely city in Cincinnati. I personally love it because it's in the middle of some of the larger areas of Cinci, like downtown or Mason/West Chester, so it makes for easy access anywhere. I attend college near downtown, and my husband works near Mason, and our commute time is almost the same.
Finally, it's just cute! The neighborhoods are well maintained, whether the area has wealthier houses or not, and the school districts are good (opinions from friends, I attended school elsewhere).
I know my husband and I plan to buy a house here--it's quiet, accessible, and can accommodate any price range.

I've been living in Kenwood for the past decade and I truly love it. It doesn't have the secluded feeling of other suburbs and it's full of so many shops and a variety of restaurants. The houses are affordable and there are so many beautiful homes and great neighborhoods to choose from. Living in Kenwood also allows great access to the top schools in the state of Ohio. You are very close to the highway and you can get to other places very quickly.
Cincinnnati has really brought in amazing nightlife to down town and Over the Rhine, which has really been cleaned up a lot. They have put in so many shops and restaurants that are bringing in business. The art all over downtown and in Northside is amazing, I love seeing the murals all over the city. Cincinnati has a nice home town feel, which it is my home town, but everyone from here connects on so many things such as food, annual events and sports. I haven't been to too many other cities, but Cincinnati will always have my heart, whether I live here or not in the future.
