What are the nicest places to live in and around Cincinnati?

Blessed are those to whom cost is not an issue, for they have their pick of the litter when it comes to Cincinnati renting. If you’re someone looking for a place to rent in the Cincinnati metro region and money is no object, rest assured you can find some pretty swanky digs within arm’s reach of the city.

Hyde Park
Located on the east side of Cincinnati, the Hyde Park neighborhood was actually established in the late 1800s as an exclusive community for the city’s wealthiest residents. It was named by its founders, who wanted to emulate the upscale town of Hyde Park, New York.

Mount Lookout
As long as you’re okay with a bustling nightlife fueled by college students visiting from neighboring universities, you will find life in the Mount Lookout neighborhood of east Cincinnati a great place to hang your hat. The neighborhood is also home to the beautiful and popular Ault Park, which has long been involved in a symbolic, tongue-in-cheek tug of war between residents of Mount Lookout and Hyde Park, who each claim the park as their own.

Mount Auburn
Another hilltop neighborhood founded by wealthy in the 19th century for the purposes of escaping big city life, the Mount Auburn neighborhood was even enough to inspire a few words from Charles Dickens himself when he wrote about its “remarkable beauty.”
