From Garfield Tower, it’s a 17-minute bus ride to the University of Cincinnati, and a 30-minute ride to Xavier. With your closest bus stop a two-minute walk away, getting around on weekends is equally easy. When you want to escape the city, pack a picnic basket and head to Smale Riverfront Park; sit on the swings overlooking the water, or cool off at the summertime splash pads.
However you spend your time, you’ll love coming home to your private apartment. Let yourself in through the secure entry, then pause in reception to greet your friends, or to watch the news on the flatscreen TV. When you get upstairs, dress for a workout in the on-site fitness center. Enjoy breathtaking city views as you get fit, then head back to your apartment for a relaxing bubble bath. Choose a new outfit from your spacious closet, before throwing your dirty clothes in a bag ready for a trip to the laundry.
Later, finish your assignments in the living room, then head up to the roof. Swim a few laps of the indoor heated rooftop pool, challenge your mates to a game of billiards, or grab one of the comfy chairs and simply kick back in front of the TV. Later, cook for yourself in your apartment kitchen, or meet your friends for a meal at your favorite local restaurant. Keep it casual at neighborhood Mexican spot Taqueria Mercado, or celebrate a special occasion at fancy French bistro Jean-Robert’s Table.
