Moving to Kentucky

Written by Alyssa Howard,

Kentucky, the “Bluegrass State,” is known for its racehorses, musical traditions, local cuisine and folk heritage. The state boasts more miles of running water than any other state except Alaska. Your kids will love day trips to Mammoth Cave, Cumberland Falls and Lost River Cave. You also can't really be a Kentucky resident without hitting the Kentucky Derby and Louisville Shakespeare Festival.
