Moving to Kentucky?

So you’ve decided to move to Kentucky. Fabulous choice! The Bluegrass State has a lot to offer -- friendly folks, beautiful outdoors, intense sports rivalries, and more. Kentucky also boasts a low cost of living but a high quality of life -- affordable living with a touch of Southern hospitality.

While chicken might be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Kentucky, there’s so much more to the culture here. Hunting and outdoor activities keep people busy year round, and cheering on the Kentucky Wildcats might just be the state sport. And if it’s good food you’re looking for? Pass up the Colonel and have yourself a Hot Brown instead!
