I am very openminded, but I am thinking that NE Ky Covington/Cincy will have more of a midwest feel than a southern feel, am I right? I am originally from the midwest but living in the deep south east, and looking to return to my roots somewhat w/o the extreme cold of the lakes. I was just wondering if there are others who have relocated to the NE Ky area from other places also, and what they think of the area......

Anyone a transplant to NE Ky on this board? That can give me some opinions of how they like it? Pros and cons?

I moved here from California back in 92 to the Richmond area. Not as Northeast as you're talking, but yes the more North you go, the more midwest feeling you get.

I think you'll fit in just about anywhere. If you're midwestern, but have experienced the south, then Northcentral Kentucky is probably perfect for you. (don't know if the Covington area is considered Northeast or Northcentral). Regardless, I think you'll get milder winters, a midwest feel, and southern hospitality all rolled into one. And especially if you want the larger city and more amenities close-by in Cincy.

Good luck and welcome to Kentucky!

This is one thing I do find fascinating about this state - North is North and South is definetly South.

The people are great no matter where you are, but the the transition and way of life is completely different the further south you go - and the further out of a metro area you are.

My family is originally from Bloomfield (Nelson County area), and then migrated to Henry county where most of my roots still are. I was transplanted to Central KY about 23 years ago, and the difference is amazing. Still 'down-home' , but the further south you are the air just seems to change. It's hard to explain. Perhaps it could be called more 'set in their ways', but I think most areas outside of the metro are like that. Kinda comes with the territitory - even though the topic may be different.

Anyway, you will most assuredly fit in wherever you go as long as you follow the Golden Rule, and look for a place that has everything important to you. My cousin moved away back in the the early 80's and settled in California. He comes home from time to time and even though he loves where he is, there is still no heaven on earth like there is here. Biased, I know, but Ky gets in your blood and it's hard to shake.

One thing, as far as the climate is concerned, there is a noticible difference, especially when Spring is coming on. Things tend to green up and the air is warmer at least 2 weeks or more ahead of northern KY. Driving down I-71 then south to I-65 will unfold varying degrees of growth right before your eyes. It is amazing.

Good luck to you - and Welcome!
