Lets see your stats? You do whatever you can to bash NKY/Ohio, but yet you know nothing about this area. Your opinion are not true FACTS.

Now, hand me the stats. This should be interesting...

We really would place proximity to outdoor recreation at the top of our list as well as a family friendly town. I'm thinking Chattanooga might fit the bill a little more on that but not sure as I have not been there. But I have spent lots of time in N. Kentucky over the past ten years. We go down there about three times a year or more.
I would probaly go wtih Chattanooga. I like the feel better down there. You would be impressed with what the downtown area has to offer. From the aquarium and so forth. You are also closer to the mountains. Tennessee's scenery is better than Kentucky's in my opinion. You run into far more progressive cities too.

Knoxville like I stated earlier, is extremely underrated. The only area that I would really say look into would be Louisville in Kentucky. If NKY is out of the question.

Exactly! Now lets see the rest of the growth of that region there. It still isn't growing as fast as NKY. Notice, you even highlighted it, I said region. You bring me one county. REGION...

Dude, look up Madison Co, Jessamine Co, Scott Co, Garrard Co, all in Central Ky have fast growth rates. As a whole this would make Central Ky the fastest growing region of the state.

Boone County is the only county in Northern Ky with a comparable growth rate.

Dude! The problem is, you sit there and consistantly bash NKY/Cincinnati. You say what you want without looking up the stats. You fail to realize that Cincinnati (city proper is growing), Cincinnati metro area is growing, Butler and Warren Counties (on the Ohio side are rapidly growing), and Hamilton County (Cincinnati) is also growing. Last I check, Jefferson County (Louisville) was declining in population.

Central Kentucky is experiencing that growing due to sprawl. Thats not the best thing. That means you are seeing and exodus of people leaving Louisville. Louisville has smart growth growing on, but after L'ville, Convington/Newport have the most development going on in Kentucky. Lexington's new tallest is now a field that floods when it rains.

I don't know. Maybe it bothers you to see the amount of construction going on in Cincinnati, the culture, the diversity, the billions being invested downtown. I don't bash Kentucky to make SW Ohio look better. But you certainly bash Cincinnati to make Louisville and Lexington look better. I do not talk bad about Kentucky, unless usually YOU talk bad about Ohio.

Its quite ammusing reading your comments.

I appreciate all the comments related to my original question. Your info has been really helpful. From what I have here it seems like Chatt or Knox would be good choices for us and worth checking out. We already have time scheduled to visit Louisville and Lexington in April and will be visiting Tennessee in June. Any good camping areas in Tennessee that you would recommend? We have friends in the Kentucky area to stay with but don't know a sole in Tennessee so camping in close proximity to Chattanooga and Knoxville would be ideal.

There are a couple of state parks close to Chattanooga to use and of course the national park is within an hours drive of Knoxville to camp
