Ross lies along Route 8, which parallels the Ohio River. The flavor is very rural as the town is surrounded by agricultural land. Homes vary from small to quite large. Large farms have been divided and this has encouraged growth in the areas.
The rich bottom land along the river brings carloads of city residents looking for fresh vegetables or just enjoying the scenic views during the summer months. Farmers set up roadside stands to sell their harvests. Summer months also see people traveling through these areas to reach their summer homes along the river.
Route 8 is the main east to west highway connecting the town with other populated areas of Campbell County. The AA Highway has become an integral part of Campbell County. Public transportation is provided by the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky.
St. Elizabeth Hospital East is located in Fort Thomas, Emergency Medical Service (EMS) is also available.
Local merchants provide general services in neighboring towns. A drive to I-471 and the AA Highway lead to all major shopping areas.
River sports are the popular attraction. Pendery Sports Park is located nearby and has youth soccer fields.
