Do you specifically mean the Newport/Covington/etc towns that are suburbs of Cincinnati?

If so, I would say that they are slightly less like the rest of Kentucky, for whatever that's worth. There's enough Ohio and/or Appalachian influence to be distinct from the very clear vibe you get in Lexington, for example.

However, don't misunderstand. When you cross that river, you absolutely know that you aren't in Ohio anymore. Private liquor stores, indoor smoking, more billboards, more Southern accents, more "country" culture by far.

Oh dear... I'm sure Ohio is so vastly different and superior to Kentucky. Whatever dude.

It's different, just not superior

Honestly, what part of the state ISN'T very different from the "rest" of the state.

Lexington is more educated and has a higher Asian & Hispanic population than anywhere else in KY

Louisville has more good city parks, factories, and urban neighborhoods than probably the rest of KY combined

Pikeville is very different from Bowling Green.

Heck, Russell Springs and Liberty are 20 miles apart and TOTALLY different

Northern Kentucky is diffrent. It has a more "northernized" culture ( if that is a word lol ). Most people from the state think they are rude, like I said its not that, its just the culture. But I agree with what most of you have said it seems everwhere here is diffrent. I personally don't like it, I almost went to NKU but didn't because of the northern feel. Gret place to visit though, go reds!

Um, I'm from the South buddy. For what it's worth, aside from the Billboards, I consider all of those things to be a sign of NKY's superiority to Ohio.

But I never made a value judgement one way or another in my post. I was just listing the objective differences that make NKY distinct from its neighbor. You were the one to assume those things were negative, not me.
