The weather is very nice. People are friendly. Schools are great. It is a small town which you could find everything in 5 minutes around your house. Safety in this area is pretty good. I have seen people leave their bikes in the playground and nobody touch it. You could the highest safety in this area. The diversity is great here. I like that in our neighborhood there are people from India, Pakistan, Asia, Italy,... which makes life really interesting here. Regional attractions include The Golf Center, Great Wolf Lodge and Conference Center, Kings Island amusement park, and the annual Western & Southern Open.

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!
