Few places can match Lexington for livability and opportunity—a fact that attracts newcomers from young adults and growing families to seasoned professionals and retirees. This region has earned national attention in Forbes, CNN Money, The Atlantic, Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, and Livability.com as a great place to retire, buy a home, land a job, launch a high-tech startup, and attend college. Lexington has also been named a Google eCity, a designation for top online business communities. In addition to urban advantages, the Bluegrass Region offers a moderate four-season climate and picturesque backdrop for outdoor adventures, sports, farmers markets, and family activities. Regional parks add natural beauty and programs for archery, camping, canoeing—even scuba. Within a short drive from home are opportunities for hiking, camping, and whitewater rafting. Enthusiasts of “the horses” will love the live action at Keeneland racecourse or harness racing at The Red Mile. However, few spectator thrills can ever rival the frenzy that takes over Lexington during basketball season with the University of Kentucky Wildcats—the most successful NCAA Division I Champions in history.
