What Is More Desirable? Living In The City Or A Suburb Of Cincinnati: Part Two

By | West Chester Apartments | No Comments

In our previous blog The Lakes at West Chester Village, your source of luxury apartments in West Chester, OH, discussed the general appeals and stereotypes that are associated with living in the city versus living in the suburbs. Additionally, we spoke in depth about the benefits and the culture that the city can provide to someone living within city limits. If you would like to revisit part one of this blog post, click here.

As we stated in our previous blog, we are a stakeholder in the argument of if living in the suburbs is better than living in the city and vice versa. At The Lakes at West Chester Village, we are unapologetically in favor of the lifestyle that suburbs can provide, and in part two of this blog post, we will tell you why.

Why Suburbs?

Well, in order to get it out of the way as soon as possible, we must say that the obvious reason that we are in favor of the suburbs is our location. Sitting on the edge of the greater-Cincinnati bubble, our luxury apartments in West Chester, OH, are the perfect place to live with our communities perfect balance between relaxed and active.  Below, our community of apartments in West Chester, Ohio has compiled a favorable list in favor of living in the suburbs. Enjoy!

Get More Bang For Your Buck

When most people think about the cost of living in the suburb as compared to living in the city, they think in terms of property ownership. It is widely known that in real estate that you can get more square footage for your money in the suburb as compared to the city, but people rarely think of this concept in the terms of renting. Much like when looking for a property to purchase, West Chester rentals also allow you to get more square footage for your buck. So would you rather live in a tiny studio apartment in downtown Cincinnati? Or in a large apartment in West Chester for the same, if not less, money.

Less Is More

Sure, the obvious thing that West Chester has less of than in Cincinnati is people, but sometimes less can be a good thing. With a smaller population comes, wait for it — less pollution. With the deficit in cars on the road, you might notice better air even though you are still within a reasonable distance of downtown. Additionally, if you reduce the number of people in a given area, you will also notice a tremendous amount of noise reduction. While we are only 23 miles from downtown Cincinnati, you might find our luxury apartments in West Chester, OH quiet enough to be a day spa.

Get To Know The Neighborhood

Better Schools

While this is not always the case with suburbs, West Chester happens to have some of the best schools in the Cincinnati area. Are you interested in providing your child, or future child, with a quality public education? Consider moving to West Chester, where the local high school has a 40 percent rate in advanced placement educational programs. At The Lakes at West Chester Village, we offer apartments that are for rent in West Chester, Ohio that can allow you to become established in our quaint suburban community.

A Chance To Participate In Government

Living in a smaller community means that your voice is more easily heard. Taking a more active role in government is much easier when you are a part of a smaller community like ours because your voices and opinions can be heard by those that actively make the decisions. If you are a part of our community of luxury apartments in West Chester, OH, you have the opportunity to have your voice be heard. Exercise your rights with us!

Have We Made The Suburbs Appealing Enough?

Like we said in part one of this blog series, there are three types of people in this world — people that love living within city limits of a large metropolitan area, people that enjoy living in the suburbs, and people that really have no idea what living arrangement would better suit them. If you were in favor of living in the city, we probably wouldn’t change your mind, but for those that remained undecided, we look forward to having you come to visit our community of luxury apartments in West Chester, OH.

At The Lakes at West Chester, we understand that people are predisposed to like the city or the suburbs. All we are saying is that if the suburbs sound appealing to you, we would love to have you come to visit. If you have any further questions on our apartments in West Chester, or even about our quaint township itself, please don’t hesitate to contact us and ask. If living on the outskirts of the hecticness known as Cincinnati, schedule a tour of our West Chester apartments, or apply online today!

What Is More Desirable? Living In The City Or A Suburb Of Cincinnati: Part One

By | West Chester Apartments | No Comments

There are three types of people in this world — people that love living within city limits of a large metropolitan area, people that enjoy living in the suburbs, and people that really have no idea what living arrangement would better suit them. Here at The Lakes at West Chester we are obviously partial to the latter, being that of living in the suburbs, but in an effort to better demonstrate the benefits of both sides we will do our best to be impartial. Join The lakes at West Chester Village, your source for luxury apartments in West Chester, OH as we discuss the various benefits of living inside, or outside of the Cincinnati city limits.

Living In The City Or The Suburbs: The Argument

Even as a key stakeholder in the debate regarding the appeals of living in the city or the suburb, we must acknowledge that our luxury apartments in West Chester, OH might not appeal to everyone. Naturally, some people are predisposed to city life, as they find the fast-paced culture alluring. That being said, there will always be people on the other side of the spectrum as well — people that find quiet evenings at a small local brewery more appealing than a late night at a downtown pub.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty part of the argument, as it is really more of a preference than an argument — we here at The Lakes At West Chester Village would like to acknowledge some of the stereotypes associated with living in the city and living in the suburb.

Historically, people were known to spend their youth disseminated around the country in communities ranging from metropolitan to extremely rural communities, with most younger people  seeking the appealing city-lifestyle. Then, after living their 20s and 30s in the metropolitan area, they suddenly want a simpler life in a quiet, quaint, community. Then, they would move to the suburb, start a family, and live quietly.

While the cliche ideologies of the city and suburbs once had been indeed quite strong, they are no longer relevant, as now — regardless of age, some people are predisposed to like the city, and others, the suburbs.

City Living: What Are The Appeals?

There are many reasons that someone might resort to city living instead of typing “apartments in West Chester” or “apartments for rent in the Cincinnati suburbs”.  Some people have jobs in the city and aren’t quite ready to start commuting, while others simply love the city life and would never want to leave it. Living in the city can be extremely fun, as there is always something going on. While cities like Cincinnati can provide the hustle and bustle that cities are usually associated with, it can also prove to be less fast-paced, as there are localized cultures within the city limits that can be incredibly valuable to immerse yourself in.

Are you an intellectual that likes to spend your time learning the vast wealth of your city’s knowledge? Then check out the Cincinnati Art Museum, Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame & Museum, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, Contemporary Arts Center, and more.

Are you more interested in the restaurant and entertainment culture? Catch a concert at U.S. Bank Arena or Riverbend Music Center or reserve yourself a table at J. Alexander’s – Redlands Grill, or BRAVO Cucina Italiana.

Our point is that even as a provider of luxury apartments in West Chester, we can see the appeal that people might see in living within Cincinnati’s city limits.

Stay Tuned For Part Two: The Allure Of The Suburb

In part two of this blog post, we will discuss the allure of the suburb, and why people might find it more attractive than the city.

For those of you that already have seen the promises of living in a suburb of Cincinnati like West Chester, Ohio we urge you to come to visit us at The Lakes at West Chester Village. Our luxury apartments in West Chester, OH are located in a quaint township outside of Cincinnati, but still has all of the resources of a large city. Check out one of our last blog posts where we discussed some fun activities in West Chester.

Five Annual Events Near Our West Chester Apartments

By | West Chester Apartments | No Comments

In one of our past blogs, we discussed some of the reasons why we think living in the West Chester Township area is second to none. Today we will continue that trend by discussing some of the best events that our area will be hosting this summer. All of the events that we talk about today are within a reasonable distance of out West Chester apartments, so grab your bike or skateboard and experience the wonderful events that our town has to offer.

Here at The Lakes at West Chester, we thoroughly believe that apartments in West Chester are better than apartments anywhere else in the Cincinnati area. Why? The answer is simple — there is no place in the world like West Chester. Join us today as we discuss some of the summer 2018 events.

Buckeye BBQ Fest – May 18-19, 2018

If you are interested in some good old-fashioned family fun you absolutely have to be in attendance at the annual Buckeye Barbecue fest. Featuring two nights of non-stop live blues concerts, 99 kegs of local microbrews, a classic car show, and a multitude of different barbecue vendors, this event is sure to be an absolute blast.  

In addition to being chock full of entertainment, food, and fun, the Buckeye BBQ Fest also doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to get into like most large events. Day passes are five dollars, and kids under the age of 12 get in free. So what are you waiting for? If you live in one of the many apartments for rent in West Chester, OH, or even a house for that matter, head on down to the Buckeye BBQ Fest. We will see you there!

Hump Day Concert Series – May 31 to Aug 22, 2018

Everyone’s work week is the same. When the week starts you get that “I have five days of work left this week.” feeling, and needless to say, it is quite unenjoyable. Luckily, when Wednesday rolls around and you hit that midway point to the weekend your spirits are lifted. In the West Chester Township, we consider Wednesday to be a day of celebration, and that is exactly what we do.

Every Wednesday for the greater part of the summer at Voice of America MetroPark, tasty dinner, drinks, and music will be served to all in attendance. So grab your chairs, blanket, and a cooler or snack and relax to the soothing sound of local music as you celebrate your Wednesday. To learn more about this event check out the Metro Parks of Butler County website.

Everyone loves Christmas, right? But It is kind of a bummer that you can only see Saint Nick once a year.

If your children are interested in seeing Santa (or if you are) be sure to stop by this wonderful event that celebrates the unbeknownst “half-Christmas” celebration.

Are you not a fan of boating, races, or spectating? Don’t fret, because like most West Chester events, the Crazy Cardboard Boat Regatta features a plethora of local vendors as well as other entertainment activities that you can participate in.
