Located in the center of the City of Cincinnati, just 9 minutes from downtown, Clifton is a village-like community of quiet tree-lined, residential streets flanked by historic homes and mansions. With gaslights burning, Clifton beckons to both the cultured and urbane. Residents of Clifton are a mingling of students, educators, artists, professionals, and families.
Clifton bears close proximity to the the University of Cincinnati, and several leading medical centers. Residents enjoy easy access to all cultural, sporting, and entertainment facilities in the area. Uniquely lacking in strip malls and franchise stores, Ludlow Avenue is the heartthrob of the community with a collection of shops and restaurants, as well as Cincinnati’s only surviving art theater. There are beautiful public parks and gardens in Clifton: Mt. Storm Park, Burnet Woods, and Rawson Nature Preserve. There are 14 houses of worship within the Clifton area.
