It's the traffic inside Hamburg that's the hassle Dix. A maze of lanes that run all over willy-nilly with various blind corners, dead ends, dangerous crossings and things you "can't get to from here".

Great care must be taken driving in there.

Busy? Well of course it's busy, it has every store that exists I do believe. It also draws people from Eastern and Southern KY, which is another reason it's so busy. I was there a few days ago around noon on a weekday and it wasn't bad at all.

yeah, but how many people can shop on weekdays around noon? It would be OK if it was busy, but laid out where traffic could flow smoothly.

Google maps has an updated list of the streets in Hamburg Pavilion.

Sorry I had to laugh at this. Growing up in Texas and living for a while in Chicago try doing this and welcome a bird and not the animal form. I don't think Lexington is so different, I have NEVER had so many people tailgate me until I moved to Kentucky.


We Live in Hamburg and the traffic SUCKS. When I get off work or have days off between 3-6 it's gridlock and you better find a nice radio station because your going to need it.

Very true reflection of Lexington...the people are generally snobbish, surly and, yes, impatient. One of the rudest cities I've ever been to.

I AM soooooooooooo glad I no longer live in that Central Kentucky "Go-Cats-ra-ra-ra-Calipari-ra-ra-ra-Let's-Get-Wasted-at-Keeneland" horse crap. I live very near a real city now...called Cincinnati!

Oh, and as for Hamburg, it's a disgusting excuse of a shopping center. Poor layout, very pedestrian unfriendly, suburban lack-of-character...just very boring. Rookwood Commons and Kenwood Towne Center in Cincinnati are much better!
