Mason is a great place to live! The schools are great and there are lots of activities. However, there are many people and so they constantly have to make new homes everywhere, resulting in lots of houses everywhere.

I found the city of Mason very friendly and inviting to people of color. It has excellent schools and people who care about their health and well being. There are many athletic opportunities for all levels to participate in. I really like the hometown feel of the city. Every summer the city puts on a "summer series" of activities ranging from all-inclusive parades to fun runs/walks, to fireworks and festivals celebrating Mason and its history. I really enjoyed the high school's homecoming parade and the outstanding marching band! WOW!
Having lived in Mason for the past fourteen years, I've grown to love the town and community. My family first moved to Mason for the job opportunity, as my mom was transferred to the local Procter and Gamble offices. Initially, P&G was one of the only major employers, which brought diversity to Mason. Now, however, Mason has become host to Apex, Festo, Mitsubishi Electric Automotive, and countless other companies.
With the growing number of corporations in Mason, the city has continued developing neighborhoods and shopping centers. Mason High School has become one of the largest and best schools in the state of Ohio. As a current senior, I've enjoyed my high school experience and loved the multitude of opportunities for students. With Great Wolf Lodge, the Western and Southern Open, and Kings Island Amusement Park, summers are never boring despite being a suburban town.
Although next year I'll be leaving for college, Mason will always be a place I can call home.
