If you are looking to buy a home in Cincinnati there are many neighborhoods to choose from. Probably the number one gay friendly area to live in is the Mount Adams area. This is a wonderful area with panoramic views of the city. This area is gentrified and renovated, and for that reason is a bit pricier than other areas of the city. It is one of the most trendy and stylish areas of the city to live in and is known for being the home of many young professionals.
Another very stylish and trendy area that our Cincinnati gay realtors recommend is Clifton. This area is located near the University of Cincinnati and the Gaslight District. As historical as the area is, it tends to cater towards the younger crowd. It is not known for its restaurants or clubs, but is known for its meditation centers, big parks, giant public swimming pools, museums, galleries and cultural centers.
Yet another neighborhood is Winton Place. This is a small community of older homes that is considered to be one of the safer places to live in town. It is also next to a couple of parks and the historic Spring Grove Cemetery. The trails of Winton Woods and Mount Airy Forest are a short drive away and the Cincinnati Zoo is just a ten-minute drive away. It is not cheap to live here but it is very quiet and very safe. If you like a lot of nightlife you are not likely to find it here.
One of the coolest and most eclectic neighborhoods in Cincinnati is the North side. You won’t find a strip mall or restaurant chain anywhere around here. Most of the buildings are very old and beautifully renovated. There are many beautiful big murals, window displays and art galleries. This is a very active and happy LGBT community that also has a mix of artists, students, singles and some families. This area is very much appreciated for the sense of community it has, as well as its large number of cafes, restaurants and bars.
Gays and lesbians who want to live affordably, yet near downtown often choose to live in an area called Walnut Hills. It is an area filled with beautiful Victorian homes but a little edgier than other areas of town. There’s a mix of abandoned buildings with gentrified buildings. The restaurants and outdoors vendors in this area are amazing and there are also many pizza joints, cafes and historical old stores in the area that keep life interesting.
