As a graduate of Mason High School and apart of the town for my entire life I have created amazing memories in this town. With my graduating class be so large I was able to create connections with different people with different views. The education given is very high quality and I have never felt unsafe walking around town. Recently they have really put an emphasis on the mental health of all the students at the high school and K-8. There is plenty to do around town on any given night and is just far enough away from the city that the traffic isn't awful but you are still able to go to Cincinnati or even Dayton for a night out. With a P&G plant being off of the main road that goes through town the job opportunities are great and still expanding with the additions they are adding to the building. Great place to live, especially with a family!

Mason, Ohio is a wonderful city to live in. You are in the middle of so many amazing sites and places. There's parks, downtowns, amazing restaurants, shops, malls, etc. The neighborhoods are all close and very safe. When I was younger I would ride my bike all around Mason and West Chester. And in the morning you can see families walking their dogs and running. Overall Mason is just a wonderful place to live. Especially if you want to be connected without all the city distractions and noise!
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.
