    Hi Ladies,

    We may have to move to Cincinnati by this month end due to hubby's job. Though there are other options of Pittsburg and NC, his demand is more so in Ohio Cincinnati.My biggest concern is the weather in Cincinnati during winters.
    So I was wondering if anyone of you could give me their opinions with respect to the following:

    1.) Weather during winter- Is it very cold and windy? what's the average lowest temp during winters? (my 2 yr old son catches immediate cold if its windy)
    2.) Indian communities, good apt complexes with indians..(names of the areas if possible)
    3.) Cost of living (like apartment rates for a 2 bedroom, electricity and gas bills) etc..), Safety of the locality.
    4.)A Very very good paediatrician (another reason i hate going from virginia is because i've got the best of best paediatrician for him here.)
    5.) Places to see around,visit at a distance of 3-4 hrs since summer has started...(eg in virginia we have zoos, safari, shenandoah valley, beach, aquarium
    6.)Daycares
    7.) Indian stores

    Please ladies, Iam eagerly awaiting responses. Please take some time out to respond to my query...:spin
    Thanks a lot...

    Hi ,
    My Family is also about to move to Cincy , OH from shelton , CT in a few weeks.
    I was doing my sort of exploration and find out the following. Hope it might be helpful to you too
    1) About Communities - Cincy has very good indian community. I think most of them are around Blue Ash , Mason . We have booked an apt in old montgomery because of the good school district.
    2 ) Check
    out the following sites
    Cincinnati Indian Community : Cincinnati - ekNazar
    Apna Ohio - Ohio Indian Community
    Cincinnati Indian Restaurants - Ohio Indian Community Guide
    Cincinnati Hindu Temple - Ohio Indian Community Guide ( Cincinnati Hindu Temple )

    It does get very cold and snows, probably 4-5 big snows starting jan thru mar. It does not get as windy and one can get used to it otherwise!

    There are many Indian communities. Looks like Blue ash is quite popular with some wait list even! You can also check out communities in symmes, mason, anderson and west chester. Looking at school district, blue ash, symmes, mason are the best.

    Most of the above mentioned localities are safe and I can only take a guess that for a 2 bedroom it may be between 1200-1500. I donot knwo much about gas/electricity!
    referencing with neighbors and friends is the best way to approach!

    Locally there are ofocourse downtown, aquarium etc. Else there is dayton airforce museum. Most places like chicago, detroit are about 4-5hrs drive, DC being 8 and Niagara/Ny about 12!

    plenty!
    plenty including a patel brothers...so are Indian restaurants!

    Well, tranquility! It really is not too bad once you are kind of ready mentally! So don't fear that - as you know this past winter was so warm, we were almost yearning for snow. You will like it just fine :) So are you dates decided?

    Hi tranquility, Srama has already replied to your questions.
    I had replied to another thread on this forum by Priya regarding the places to live in Cincinnati. Take a look there as well for the list of apartment complexes with lot of Indians.

    If you have any more questions, send me a message.
