Life in the Bluegrass

We think you’ll discover that life in the Bluegrass State provides many opportuni­ties. In Kentucky, you’ll find solace in the beauty of nature- rolling hills, plentiful lakes and picturesque horse farms; a vibrant, professional visual and performing arts community; comfortable, affordable homes- historical or brand new; and an avid love of sports.

Lexington, Kentucky, known as the Horse Capital of The World, has a thriving metro area and is the second largest city in Kentucky. It’s no wonder the popula­tion is growing. Lexington is a great place to live, work and raise a family. In 2006, Lexington was named one of Kiplinger’s 50 Smart Places to Live. The list was based on factors such as cost of living and housing, quality health care, low crime rate, economic vitality and quality of life.
