"Martin Dr: The Perfect Location"

Martin Dr. is a really cool road, mostly because of its location. It's a hilly street that directly connects Columbia Parkway with Eden Park, not to mention the rest of Mt. Adams (via Hill St or Parkside Pl). Beyond that, though, Martin Dr. has some of the best views around. Mt. Adams is known for its beautiful views of the city, and Martin Dr. is a great example of this.

There are a few homes on Martin Dr., but not many. The ones you'll find are nice single-family properties that have excellent views, obviously. They're a bit close together, which some people might find unappealing, but many do have garage parking or driveways which is always hard to come by in Mt. Adams. They homes are beautiful but not very large, so I wouldn't recommend this street to big families. To be honest, I wouldn't recommend Mt. Adams in general to big families, just because the neighborhood is known for its younger crowd, its nightlife, and its beautiful homes that are smaller in size than those in other parts of Cincinnati.
Pros
  • Excellent location
  • Gorgeous views
  • Easily accessible
Cons
  • Not many properties
  • Not great for big families

"Martin Drive provides a connection to Mount Adams and Eden Park"

Martin Drive is easily accessed off of eastbound Columbia Parkway. As you head up towards the hill that is Mount Adams, there are a few homes perched on the hillside between Martin Drive and Columbia Parkway. As you proceed on martin Drive past Parkside Place, you are heading towards Eden Park Drive. There is a park area where the remnants of the old reservoir stand and the defunct pumping station. Martin Drive continues to curve up the hill past Krohn Conservatory, where it ends at Eden Park Drive.

Martin Drive is the easiest way to reach Mount Adams from the west side of Cincinnati and from Northern Kentucky. It is located off Columbia Parkway, which can be easily accessed from both the 471 bridge and Fort Washington Way. There aren't a lot of homes along Martin Drive, but the few that are there have a fantastic view of the river. The rest of Mount Adams and Eden Park are convenient from Martin Drive.
Pros
  • easily accessible
  • connect Mount Adams to Northern Kentucky and western Cincinnati
Cons
  • not a lot of homes
