Danville is very cute. I have relatives there, but haven't visited during the holidays. All are sort of the "go all out decorating" types ...

Same here in Morehead area. There are whole neighborhoods who have their Halloween decorations in their yards and on their houses. It sure makes it nice to drive around and see such a cohesive celebration of holidays with almost all the neighbors! :c)

Good luck in your search!
God Bless,
Desiree

LaGrange!!! Wow, what a place to be during the holidays. If there is a picture dictionary for quaint during the holidays, it is downtown LaGrange. Fantastic old town charm with a highly active main line railroad right down Main Street. The train comes through town so slowly (at first) that people can actually walk right up to it and pet the cars as they roll by. Well, that might be a bit exaggerated for safety reasons, but unless you have stood on Main St. on the 1st Friday in December during "Light-up LaGrange" while bustling between stores holding open houses and a Currier & Ives type snow falling, it is just unexplainable.

Come to LaGrange, you'll love the spiritssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss. There is even a Halloween Ghost Tour of all the claimed haunted buildings downtown.

Take a look at Midway Ky. It is a quite small town just a few miles off of I64 between Lexington Ky and Frankfort Ky. It really is a great location also surrounded by large distinguished horse farms and a Small College.

Just to update your post...the website has been changed to www.discoverlagrange.org. We will be gearing up for The Spirits of La Grange Ghost Tours before long. They will start Sept. 4th and run through Oct. 31st. We will offer History Walks through the summer. The Farmers' Market will be opening in early May and run through October. Yes, a train does run through here - actually about 30 trains a day! Great restaurants and shopping await you in Historic Downtown La Grange, Kentucky. Friendly people, small town charm, and we've got ghosts, too!

How about Murray? They have something called Dickens Alley. Here is the quote from the Murray CVB website:

Downtown Murray becomes 17th century London the first weekend in December. The candle lit street fair boast baked goods, unique gifts and carolers in period costume.

They also have a Christmas parade, decorate the entire town, etc. Here is the link to the CVB list of festivals and the calendar of events that happened in December of 2008. Hope it helps!!!
