This is the townhouse..

http://www.forsalebyowner.com/listing/3A736

I've painted the kitchen walls from purple to a basic white this week so it won't flip anyone out. Actually, I really like living in the house, it convenient and the right amount of space, I'm just tired of being in Lexington and Kentucky in general and want to start fresh somewhere new.

May I ask what's wrong with Lexington? We're from Northern Illinois and were considering a move to either Richmond, KY or Georgetown, KY (to be close to a college for our kids). Should we reconsider?

I do not think there is anything wrong with Lexington.

However living there for 10 years I definately was ready to move.

There's nothing inherently wrong with Lexington. I've lived here for several years and I'm personally really for to move on for various reasons and start fresh somewhere else.

I found the town boring and the local culture based on churches, kinfolk and UK sports not to my taste. You can't even go for a bike ride without taking your life in your hands (or more correctly putting it in the hands of some ying-yang smoking Marlboros and wearing a Winston cap). But I grew up in and lived in Chicago. A person who likes a suburban or rural life might find the place nice. But to live in a state with a creation museum was a bitter pill to swallow.

Oh dear, it's the same old thing with you over and over and over....

Ok we get it Tommy

Churches? Lexington is no different than other cities when it comes to religion. Every city has churches, churches and more churches. Last I checked Chicago was full of them.

You don't want to live in a state with a creation museum? Oh, I've heard it all now from you!!! Complete nonsense as usual.

I see the InLondon program has kicked in again. City Data may want to investigate who has planted this program here; the Lexington Chamber of Commerce perhaps?

Note the unsophisticated nature of the program which cannot formulate a rational argument but argues by mere contradiction and vehement assertion.

I agree with Irishtom that Lexington isn't bike friendly and the obsession over UK basketball is tiresome, especially if you aren't a sports or basketball fan. It also can be really boring and you tend to find yourself having to drive at least an hour to go somewhere else for entertainment. However, it is a nice place to raise a family and there are a lot of family friendly activities that are offered. That's just not my focus and one reason I'm looking to move.
