I didn't see anywhere in your post asking for lakes. Flemingsburg is a nice town too but this part of KY has the Ohio River, not many large lakes. Cave Run Lake is a recreational lake in Bath County not all that far.

Yeah sorry for not mentioning my need for lakes. Hopefully I can figure out how to edit posts. Also, thoughts on London?

Louisville....far and away. Live in Oldham County. Oldham Co has the most transplants but still feels rural. You will get alot of boosters push other areas but theres a reason Oldham has the best schools and more transplants.

These other towns mentioned are too country and colloquial. They are very insular.
Also near Louisville consider Shelby County Ky and Floyd and Clark County Indiana. All are great suburbs of zLouisville.

I'd trust your original instinct with Louisville vs Cov. Louisville has zero traffic compared to N Ga.

Peter1948 is correct IMO. Louisville vs Covington, is like day vs night, or a walk in the park vs a walk through Grand Central Station, or the Kentucky Derby vs a mud bog race...the difference to me is stark.

Somerset, Kentucky.

There is the Cumberland lake and nearby Dale Hollow. Hiking in Daniel Boone national forest is amazing. You’re “off” the interstate towns mentioned in other posts too. Lexington is an hour and twenty, Knoxville is two, Louisville and Nashville a bit over 2 hours. Lakes and outdoor are great and you get some elevation along tenn/ky state line.

I would check the Cincinnati, OH forum for information on Covington. It has been cleaned up a lot over the past few decades.

You might like Georgetown, KY. It is right outside Lexington,close to I-75 so easy to get places, it's a college town, historic, surrounded by horse country, and about 40 minutes to Williamstown Lake.
