Richmond, Kentucky is a great place to live. There is a lot of industry in and around this area. It is only 30 minutes from Lexington and probably an hour from Somerset and London. The education is good. There are several universities within an hours drive.

Richmond is family oriented and friendly. Great place to live. I have lived in Lexington, Harrodsburg, Mount Sterling, Morehead, and Olive Hill. Richmond is fast enough but relaxed enough to enjoy life!

Default North Middletown

I'm also looking at North Middletown. Can anyone tell me about it? There's just so many nice places in Kentucky; it's so hard to settle on just one area.

Well, I know Middletown is a suburb of Louisville...is that what you mean?

If you are looking for a small, friendly town look at Cadiz, KY.
Check out www.barkleylake.com (broken link)
We have Interstate 24 and US 68 so it is very easy to get to bigger towns if you can't find what you are looking for here.
We are a diamond in the rough. We have grown a lot in the past 15 years. With Barkley Lake and The Land Between the Lakes we are sought after by retirees and couples with school age children wanting to get out of the rat race in larger towns.
Check out www.lbl.org
We are a dry county, with that being said we have a lot of churches to choose from.
If you would like other information about Southwestern KY area just let me know I will try to help.

Have a blessed day!

On the map, North Middletown is east of Lexington; near Paris, Winchester, & Mt. Sterling. Thanx.

I have been looking at housing in the Danville area. Does anyone know what the housing market is like there? The downtown has some lovely older homes and there appears to be some smaller farms available too.
Would appreciate any information or insights into the area.
Thank you

Default Danville

Danville is a beautiful small town. Centre College is located there so it is a bit more sophisticated than most towns its size. Norton Center for the Arts draws great performances. It is a dry county so if you enjoy wine with your dinner you won't find it there. Danville is within 30-45 minutes of Lexington so you will have dining, shopping ,etc, close by.
I don't know much about the school system there. I would think the city would have a website with ratings.

Danville has a nicely rated school system. It's a wonderful, albeit very small town.

Smile Comparison Info

Hi! We're looking for the retirement place . Anyway, we've been focusing towards TN, but we're also interested in KY & VA. They all have beautiful wooded areas, the cost for property is very reasonable (1K-3K/acre). Looking for a place where retirees from TX aren't frowned upon. TN doesn't have state income tax and VA has a "personal property" tax. So, how does the actual cost of living compare between these 3 states ? Figuring we'll be retired and on a fixed income. Which state make more sense finacially? I've heard some folks like to live in TN and shop in VA or NC. Does anyone have any comments/info or preferances?

We're hoping to buy land within the next 12-18 months . We're wanting rural wooded land (50-100 acres) with small percentage pasture. Also seeking the proverbial spring fed pond and creek. We'd like to be within an hours drive of a "larger city" (e.g., Nashville, Knoxville, Rahleigh, Bowling Green, etc.). Does anyone know anything of the Edmonton, KY area? Is it anything like Crossville, TN ?

Well, I guess I've rambled on enough. Would love to hear other folks opinions!
