The recent renaissance taking place in Cincinnati neighborhood’s like Over-the-Rhine is inspiring Northern Kentucky communities to show off cities who are in the same process of revitalizing their urban zones.

Northern Kentucky’s river cities are trying to offer everything you would need to have a comfortable urban lifestyle like: walkable neighborhoods, lively small business districts, parks, grocery stores and of course, great views of downtown Cincinnati.  

Each city contributes to the appeal of the whole area, while also being great destinations in their own right. 

Beyond the Curb is an initiative of The Catalytic Fund featuring one-day, self-guided urban living tours of Northern Kentucky’s river cities in Bellevue and Dayton.

The mission of Beyond the Curb is to encourage urban living by showcasing and marketing Northern Kentucky’s river cities to the Cincinnati region as ONE special urban area with a wide array of residential product types and amenities that uniquely cater to an assortment of lifestyles.

Beyond the Curb is funded with generous support from sponsors and from ticket sales for the purpose of urban awareness and revitalization.
