The thing that's good about Symmes Township is that it's unincorporated - there aren't a lot of laws so it has the freedom of a rural community, but there's still a decent amount of development so you can have almost immediate access to food, stores, entertainment, etc.. It is also only about 30 minutes away from Downtown Cincinnati, so you have access to the culture of a major city as well. Symmes Township has high-end police and fire departments, good neighborhoods, and excellent schools - in fact, my high school, Sycamore High School, was rated the #1 school in Ohio. Overall, Symmes Township is a safe, peaceful, quiet community.

Overall great neighborhood with plenty of shopping and great restaurants. The people are extremely kind, friendly, and outgoing. What it lacks in night-life is found in the adjacent neighborhoods.
Symmes Township is a quaint little are nestled between Montgomery, Indian Hill, and Loveland. Depending on where you live, you will either be in the Sycamore or Indian Hill School Districts. Both of these schools are in the top 30 Public High Schools in Ohio, as of 2016. The cost of living is low compared to neighboring areas, i.e. Indian Hill, but you are still close enough to enjoy all these areas have to offer. Symmes Township has a myriad of wonderful parks and is a great place to raise a family.
