Beyond the Curb is an initiative of The Catalytic Fund.   Beyond the Curb is a series of one-day self-guided urban living tours throughout Northern Kentucky’s river cities of Ludlow, Covington, Newport, Bellevue and Dayton, Kentucky. Our goal to encourage urban living in Northern Kentucky’s river cities by showcasing the wide array of residential product types and amenities available here!

The series is a rare opportunity to explore the interiors of several residential and commercial properties in various neighborhoods in each River City. The tours showcase a variety of properties: apartments,  condominiums, historic mansions and single-family residences throughout Northern Kentucky’s eclectic urban neighborhoods. We’ve even featured in progress full-gut rehabs to let our guests see how gorgeous exteriors can be saved and remade to fit modern lifestyles inside.

Guests will also experience the urban lifestyle as they discover convenient amenities, local businesses, and the strong sense of community that exists in Northern Kentucky’s river towns. And you’ll see the pride and dedication local residents have toward their communities – as neighbors turn out to volunteer in all of our featured properties!

Beyond the Curb offers something for everyone, from young professionals to empty nesters, as well as those interested in historic preservation, interior design, and most importantly:  URBAN LIVING!
