City Guide
Highland Heights
Moving to Highland Heights

This area is full of fun hangouts to enjoy, and its close proximity to Cincinnati makes for extra fun and opportunities. You'll find all types of housing here, as well.

The Highlands

The area has long been referred to by locals as "The Highlands" since the 19th century, which is how it got its name. Don't fret, though. The land here is fairly flat, so if you're prone to episodes of vertigo or suffer from Acrophobia, take a deep breath and relax: you don't have to fear this city.

The Cost

The prices here should please you, especially if your wallet is on the thinner side. With a cost of living over 16% below the national average, your wallet may just have a bright future! Rental rates, however, are 5% higher than the national average, so keep that in mind when planning your move. Luckily, with so many housing options available, you're sure to find a variety of prices and amenities that will fit your style and budget.

Getting Around Town

The city has an approximate walk score of 32, meaning that you'll need a car to get you where you want to go. 82% of locals drive cars, while only 8% carpool, and 5% walk or bike. Public transportation exists here, but only 3% take advantage of it as a main method of travel. The average commute time is only 10-19 minutes, which is below the national average, so you won't have to burn up an entire tank of gas waiting in thick rush hour traffic. The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport is conveniently situated just 11 miles outside the city for those who travel far distances.

Neighborhoods in Highland Heights

Although a pretty small town, Highland Heights can still be broken up into distinct areas, each with their own draw for renters.

Downtown: Highway 27 / Alexandria Pike cuts through this section of the town, and numerous restaurants and businesses are clustered together here. NKU's campus sits just outside of the area, so you'll easily find a vast assortment of places to rent in this particular area. If a studio for rent is your cup of tea, this is the place for you.

Northern: Interstates 275 and 471 run through the northern section of the city, so if you're planning on commuting from this area to neighboring Cincinnati, or if you just like the close proximity to the big city's assortment of entertainment and fun, then this is your best bet to start the search to rent an apartment.

Southern: The southern section of Highland Heights is less business-oriented and more residential. If you're looking for rental homes, this is a great place to explore.

Living in Highland Heights

Once you find an apartment in Highland Heights, ask the locals here about the selection of restaurants. You'll definitely hear great things. The Mellow Mushroom offers great dishes, and Barleycorns entertains large college crowds. Longnecks and Chipotle Mexican Grill are both popular stops for some tasty meals, and Knotty Pine on the Bayou offers Cajun dishes.

If you prefer to burn calories instead of ingesting them, then you're sure to enjoy the outdoor activities at local parks like Veterans Park, Apple Orchard Park, Municipal Park, and Friendship Park. Enjoy some sportsmanship at the Frank Ignatius Grein Softball Field. Coney Island is only 9 miles outside of the city if you crave some amusement park fun.

The Taft Museum of Art is located in Cincinnati, and it serves as a perfect place for artistic types to spend a dreamy afternoon taking in famous works of art by such masters as Whistler and Rembrandt. Newport on the Levee is under 7 miles from the city, as well, and features a huge selection of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. The Levee's Newport Aquarium lets locals marvel at a huge selection of marine animals. You can have a penguin encounter or even touch a shark -- or not.
