"So close, and yet so far"

Although the location of the little strip of Beechmont within the Columbia Tusculum neighborhood seems to be in the middle of nowhere, it's only a 5 to 15 minute drive to Downtown, Mt. Washington, Hyde Park, Fairfax, Madisonville, Mt. Lookout and a few other nearby communities.

It's not much of a residential area. There are some older homes located on a few short streets beneath this little elevated strip, but the Beechmont Ave. itself is mostly an interchange for drivers going to Mt. Washington and beyond, heading east or west on Columbia Parkway or to the nearby industrial area or NIOSH facility at the bottom of the hill.

If you're traveling Beechmont, you'll pass Lunken Airport on the right. It's got an active airfield, play areas, a driving range and family activities. Next it crosses over a fairly active body of water (a creek perhaps?) that gets very interesting during heavy rains.

Just beyond that, there's a spot that used to be the long time location of the El Rancho Rankin Motel. For a long time El Rancho Rankin was the only thing at the bottom of Beechmont. It was sort-of a Mexican adobe themed motel that spanned the entire lot and seemed as though it belonged south the border instead of Cincinnati. There's no trace of the El Rancho Rankin these days. That lot now holds a Biggs grocery store, several restaurants and a number of service businesses.

This little section of Beechmont is usually heavy with morning and evening traffic. It's the route many people still take to and from town each day.

This location puts it at least 20 minutes away from City and Anderson medical facilities. There are a few schools about 15 to 20 minutes away as well.
