My girlfriend and I spent last night in Louisville, saw BB King at Whitney Hall and hung out at 4th street live. Most people in Lexington don't like Louisville much, some even say they hate it. I have to say that Louisville was a great place to be, the traffic wasn't bad (even for a weekend) and the people everywhere were smiling and giving off good vibes. Bardstown road was the same scene! I wish that Lexington had one ounce of the fun and variety that Louisville has to offer. I may not know my way around the city too well but there's always something cool to see or do there. I always thought that if I moved it would be to Southern California for the weather, positive energy and nutty people like me. Now I'm not so sure! Thank you Louisville for helping me see you in a different light this weekend.

Lexington still has time. To remain competitive (with Louisville,) It will have to offer that same sort atmosphere. To my knowledge, the closest thing they have to "the Highlands" are the areas around the UK and Transylvania campuses... places like "High on Rose."

I can only hope they can open their eyes and pursue this. They already have some of the best radio stations in the state of Kentucky (WUKY- NPR that rocks, The UK student station on 88.1 FM.)

Lexington is not even in the same ballpark as Louisville when it comes to this sort of thing. It is much smaller though. Nice post by the OP.

Hate all they want, Lexington does not compare to Louisville. Comparisons are not fair, Louisville is a legitimate major US city, Lexington is an overgrown college town with a business district that feels like a corporate office park.

I hate to say it...but Lexington is the least friendly large town in KY! Granted, I've only visited 4 times but each time we go it's always the same--rude drivers, rude people. Louisvillians on the other hand are friendly and down to earth for the most part--very open and helpful. People in Lexington are kind of stuck up and proud. I'm not sure why this is. Anyway, Lexington I am NOT a fan!
