We will be moving to KY next Spring. I have heard mixed reviews on Frankfort. Some say avoid it. I am mostly concerned about the crime rate as opposed to surrounding areas. Any opinions or advice?

I lived in Frankfort for two years so I will try to give some feedback.
A lot of locals give Frankfort a bad rep, but it is not a place to avoid. There are some other reasons to avoid Frankfort but I wouldn’t put crime as reason #1.

Most of the Crime is situated outside downtown in adjacent neighborhoods and along Schenkel lane on east side of city.

There are, however, some very great neighborhoods in Frankfort. I rarely felt unsafe in Frankfort but there is some crime to be aware of.
