You aint from around here - 2/19/2020
I have lived here now for over five years, originally from the west coast and here is my top 10 for why you should NOT move here.

#1 The Culture: They have none, it is neither northern nor southern. Nothing to gives them an identity except for lots of farms with fences and distilleries which are they only thing good they have going here.
#2 The People: rudeness, social ignorance and small mindedness are pervasive here even in the city, they seem to be in their own world can't hold a door open or say hello to save their life. These folks need to learn some manners.
#3 Politics: lots of commercials about some rednecks plowing with mules and a governor who "Aint from around here" , meaning your an outsider. Most in this area just votes for whatever will give them the best deal. they have no principles neither left nor right wing.
#4 Education: lots of ignorance even in the burbs and city, "schoolin aint a prioitize here".
#5 Driving and roads: Read More

Lived Here All My Life - 10/2/2015
Lexington is a nice place to live, I cannot deny that. It is beautiful in all 4 seasons although I hate the winters. The ice and snow can be very bad and it destroys my landscaping!. I recently lost boxwoods that I spent 15 years cultivating. My husband and I met in high school and both of our families are from here. It was a good place to grow up and a nice place to raise our children. People are "tolerant" of others and are usually very polite and respectful, even if they do not agree with you. I grew up in the Chevy Chase area which was really nice and still is. Currently we live in the Veterans Park area which is fabulous. With all this said I want to move somewhere near the coast! As soon as we sell our house and I find a job I'm on my way! Read More

I miss living in Lexvegas too!!! - 3/21/2015
(Pros): I lived in Lexington for 7 years, four of those spent at university. 1. The hospitality and friendliness of people was great; people of all backgrounds (religion, politics, orientation, race, etc) mingled in my circles. [but like any major city...you betta like their sports team or keep hush about it. I'm living in New Orleans now and not being a football fan is a pain!] I learned one tradition that I maintain til this day - keeping tailgating chairs in my trunk so that I can always be ready for a social event, gathering, or holiday. Friends love inviting you over to there house [not so much down here in New Orleans; they prefer to get drinks and party.] 2. The cost of living was fantastic!!! No seriously, I'm thinking about going back. I'm missing the car insurance rates especially [I believe LA has one of the highest in the country]. 3. The economy seems solid, although I wouldn't write home about it. 4. It's very green oriented and socially conscious - lots of options for Read More

I miss living in Lexington, KY - 10/29/2011
I lived in Lexington for 5 years before I had to move to the Seattle, Washington area. I have lived in Seattle for about a year now, and I miss Lexington every single day. Here's why:

1. I am a an outgoing, friendly person, and I have found that it is so very, very hard to make friends in Seattle. The people in Seattle are friendly to your face, but are not welcoming to people who actually want friendship. This is so glaringly opposite of Lexington folks! Within the first 6 months I lived in Lexington, I had formed many meaningful friendships that are still going strong today although I moved to the other side of the country. Lexington people are friendly, welcoming, and inviting.

2. The city itself has the charm and "feeling" of a small town. There are many cultural events and things to do. Lexington has several outstanding choirs and community performance groups, as well as great musical theater and ballet companies.

3. Restaurants are Read More
