Having Morehead State University here means interesting, and affordable, cultural events are always available to the community. Plus, having college kids around keeps things lively and youthful! When I am in the mood for a big city, we are only 60 miles from Lexington to the West or 60 miles to Ashland toward the east; and only about 150 miles from Louisville or Cincinnati.
