Anyone heard of these two towns? Would a single older gal be bored to tears there? Just like older historic cities, but would love to live on a river with lots of quaint coffee shops and bookstores. Also would love a place I could just stroll thru downtown, or take a bike ride after work.
Not into bar scene, but wouldn't mind a little live music on the square once in a while along with some good wholesome churches.

What is the weather like there, does it get downright cold in the winter and humid in the summer?

I've lived in Maysville all my life. It's a small but very historical little town, which sits right on the river. the best thing about Maysville, is the location. If you want quite, sit on your porch. If you want big city excitment, get in your car and drive 45 minutes down the AA hwy and you're in Cincinnati, drive 60 minutes south down US68 and your in Lexington.

Mayfield is nice.
It has a really pretty town square.
We were down there the other day, and I was just noticing how absolutely beautiful the clock tower was, in the town square.
It's a fairly quiet little town. I'm sure you'd like it.
The weather - hot and humid in summer, cold in winter.
Any other questions, ask or PM me.
P.S. Next time we go there, if I can remember, I'll take some pics for you.........

Neither of these otherwise pleasant little towns is exactly overflowing with either bookstores or coffee houses. Kentucky just isn't that kind of place, generally speaking. The suburbs of Louisville will offer you much more of an opportunity for this type of recreation, than either of the isolated, nice-but-bland places that you mentioned. Oh and yes, you will most certainly become horribly bored rather quickly in those areas. I like the tearoom/book exchange hangouts myself, and I would definitely give Louisville and it's environs ( esp. Frankfort Avenue or Baxter Avenue/Bardstown Road) a try, before going elsewhere. Happy hunting!
