I heard this area is really booming growth and job wise. I was curious as to how this area was? Can you fill me in on things to do in the area, safety, and ease of meeting people?

it's a great area, but you should check out others in NKY as well. I like Wilder, Ft Thomas, newport, etc. as well.

As far as things to do, the levy is one of the best spots in town as far as night life. Also, if you like horse racing, Turfway Park in Florence is a great spot. Dollar beers, dollar bets, dollar hot dogs on Friday happy hour... so sweet.

I grew up in Florence. It is booming, but it's become overcrowded in my opinion. All the major roads are five-lanes wide and generally packed with cars--traffic is terrible. If you've ever been to any of the suburbs north or west of Chicago, Florence is indistinguishable from them.

Comparing Florence, KY to Schaumburg, IL or Naperville, IL (NW and W suburbs of Chicago) is simply very off. Florence represents middle class suburbia USA, however, and you can find Florence on the edge of every major metro in the US.

The story I've heard is that it used to say "Florence Mall", until someone said that they couldn't "advertise" a private corporate business like the mall on a public water tower. So instead of repainting the whole thing, they changed it from Mall to Yall.

Fat Tony is correct. That's just what happened. Many years ago. I can't remember just when but it could have been in the early 70's. I love it!!
