MilfordSummertime is a great time on the East End, which is home to some of Greater Cincinnati’s most popular warm-weather hangouts. Riverbend Music Center, an outdoor concert venue featuring shows from big-name bands and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, draws huge crowds. Coney Island, an old-fashioned amusement park with the world’s largest recirculating swimming pool, is a Cincinnati institution. No matter what the season, eastsiders take pride in the area’s beautiful suburban homes, quality school districts, scenic parks, and wide array of family-friendly activities and events.

Anderson Township is an up-and-coming community that is popular with young families. Just 15 minutes from downtown Cincinnati, Anderson attracts new residents with convenient shopping centers, large homes, and a close proximity to many major employers. Both a bit older, the nearby towns of Mount Washington and Amelia feature apartments and single-family homes at more modest price points.

A handful of established neighborhoods are accessible along Cincinnati’s eastern stretch of Route 50. Closest to downtown, the hillside community of Mt. Lookout has become increasingly attractive for renting young professionals, thanks to a number of hip neighborhood bars and restaurants that stay open late into the night. On the quieter side of things, neighboring Columbia Tusculum is Cincinnati’s oldest community, and features charming and beautifully restored Victorian row houses.

Also near Route 50, the sister communities of Fairfax and Madisonville both offer vintage bungalows and fixer-uppers that make great starter homes. The nearby Village of Mariemont is known for its adorable town square and picture-perfect family homes. Farther east, the cities of Terrace Park, Milford and Newtown continue to draw in new residents with their tight-knit communities and historical charm.

Along the northeast stretch of the 275 loop, the exclusive neighborhoods of Indian Hill, Montgomery, Madeira and Blue Ash boast acres of mature wooded areas and stunning homes on large lots. At a more accessible price point, the riverside city of Loveland is ideal for residents who enjoy outdoor activities like jogging and biking, as the Little Miami Scenic Trail runs right through the heart of the town.

Of course, eastern Cincinnati isn’t all suburban. Many small, rural communities are situated on the outskirts of the region, including Batavia, Owensville, Bethel, and New Richmond.
