50 Best Places to Live in the U.S. - What makes any town or city a great place to live? When you're looking for the perfect place for relocation, you might consider housing costs, nearby attractions, access to transportation, crime rates, and the list goes on and on. Thankfully, Niche, a website that compiles profiles, ratings, and reviews for schools and places throughout the U.S., has gathered a list of the best places to live in the country so you can narrow your search — or see how your town stacks up.

New York Times

For years, Downtown Lexington was an afterthought to everything around it — two universities, a ring of homey residential neighborhoods and, in the rolling bluegrass hills surrounding the city, world-class horse farms. Basketball fans would go into town for University of Kentucky home games, and horse owners would gather at the few nice restaurants when the big horse sales in the area were underway. But otherwise, downtown was a stodgy precinct of banks, law offices and not much else.  By Jack Healy and Campbell Robertson, Meet Me Downtown, October 2022

That changed in the 2010’s. Years of effort by civic boosters dovetailed with a nationwide rediscovery of urban living, and suddenly downtown Lexington was blooming. New bars, restaurants and coffeehouses proliferated; old bank buildings were repurposed into boutique hotels; old distilleries started making bourbon again; and developers put up glassy high-rises. There were plans for a $300 million renovation of the city’s convention center and basketball arena.

Beyond the track, much is changing in Lexington, the capital of American horse country and the 15-county Bluegrass Region. New locavore restaurants and whiskey distillery revivals add post-race appeal, as do thoroughbred farms themselves.  "In Lexington, Selfies With American Pharoah, Then ‘Bourbon and Branch’" By Elaine Glusac

The city includes many of the staples of the new American South: the artisanal goods (in particular, ice cream), the mixture of boutiques and newly installed high-end shopping, the intense homegrown pride, the hipster bars and outdoor music festivals. Its pleasures, though, stretch far beyond the beltway that encircles the city. "Lexington: The bucolic Kentucky city is fiercely proud of its omnipresent horses and bourbon, but modernity is creeping in." By Travis M.
