We're looking toward a possible move from Naples, FL to an area around either Jeffersonville, IN or Lexington, KY and would really appreciate any help in deciding between the two. We are a family of four (two teenagers 15 & 17) who really crave a "homey" environment, would love to live in a log home, and enjoy mountainous (or at least rolling hills) environments with a change of seasons (really burnt out on this hot FL weather). We have grown very tired of the over-regulation that many Florida counties impose, and would rather live in a less restrictive type of environment where common sense prevails instead of the county nonsense we experience down here. Of course, we would prefer to have lower taxes, reasonable home insurance rates, and a general low cost of living as we are soon approaching our retirement years. Medical care is of importance, as well, as I have a cancer history and need to be in driving distance to decent care. We dream of living in a place that offers scenic beauty (of the mountain/hilly type), with acreage, but is drive-able to the amenities of a near-by city. I have done some research already, but both areas seem very similar; so I would really appreciate any advice any of you may offer us. Thanks!

Jeffersonville is a suburb of Louisville. Lexington is Lexington. I don't know, do you want the burb or the city? I can't imagine the outer fringes of Lexington would be much different from Jeffersonville. The worst thing would be trying to get into Louisville when the interstates are under construction.
