What are some of the towns west of Cincinnati along the Ohio River?

Big city life wears thin for some after a few decades. If you’ve lived in Cincinnati all your life and are looking to get out, it may come as a surprise to learn that you don’t have to go that far outside of the city to find a good number of lightly populated townships and villages. Here are just a few suggestions to help kick-start your search for apartments in west Cincinnati that may be what you’re looking for.

Addyston - Ten miles outside of downtown Cincinnati, you’ll find Addyston, a 1,000-strong community situated on the shores of the Ohio River.

Cleves - Located just north of the Ohio River’s north bend (and immediately above the appropriately named town of North Bend) the 2700-plus residents of Cleves share the village’s scant 1.6 square miles of land.

Groesbeck - Named in 2007 by BusinessWeek.com as one of the 50 best places to raise children, the 7,200 residents of Groesbeck average a median household income just under $50,000.

The Unexpected Giant – There’s always an exception to the rule, of course, and in this case that rule-breaker is known by the name of Colerain Township, which at last check (during the 2000 census) held over 60,000 residents—a far greater number than any other township in the state of Ohio.
