Living in Lexington, KY

Lexington is a truly unique city that combines the charisma of a large city and the charm of a small southern town. Enjoying an easy pace of life, great traffic flow, and low crime, Lexington is about the nicest place to live. Since the early 1800s Lexington has often been referred to as the "Athens of the West." Starting with Transylvania University, the oldest university west of the Allegheny Mountains, Lexington has a long history of embracing education and cultural activities. We have many independent fine dining establishments, a philharmonic with a long standing reputation for excellence, an art museum that attracts many renowned exhibits, a variety of entertainment options from plays to operas, unique boutiques as well as major shopping venues, and the widest array of horse activities of any place in the world.

Lexington is home to the University of Kentucky, famous for its basketball but also home to top-ranked College of Medicine, College of Pharmacy, and Chandler Medical Center. In addition, Lexington and its immediate surrounding towns are home to a dozen other colleges and universities, and eight hospitals.

The urban center of Lexington is both convenient and easy to get around. Some of the most exclusive neighborhoods Lexington offers are downtown suburbs with stately trees, wide boulevards, and within walking distance of everything. Parks are scattered liberally throughout the city. From spring through fall the city hosts outdoor musical events, multiple parades, and other downtown festivities.

Lexington has its own airport with multiple commercial carriers. It is one of the few airports left where you can still park in front. Two international airports - Louisville and Cincinnati - are within an hour and fifteen minute drive.

Few cities have such well developed urban centers surrounded by rolling fields filled with future Kentucky Derby winners romping in the Bluegrass, all within two miles of one another. Urban infill development has been encouraged while suburban sprawl has been limited. If you are looking for friendly people, beautiful surroundings, and an active social scene, then you are looking for Lexington.
