Living in Kentucky

From the rolling hills of the north and the Appalachian mountains to the east to the scenic underground caves of the south, there are many beautiful places to find great apartments in Kentucky.

From Churchill Downs to the Louisville Slugger

If you're looking for a city with traditions in sports, growth in business, ease in transportation and variety in local attractions, Louisville is the perfect place for your new apartment. Louisville is home of the Kentucky Derby, the nation's most prestigious horse racing event held at Churchill Downs. Whether you're into art, history or sports, you'll find a museum sure to please you, from the Louisville Slugger Museum and the Muhammad Ali Center to the Frazier International Museum, where you can admire works of art by Rembrandt, Picasso and others. Commuter traffic is lighter than in most cities, and the bus system runs through Louisville and beyond. You can take a trolley around downtown to enjoy the many everyday and not-so-everyday attractions in the area. Louisville is becoming quite the bicycle-friendly city, so that's always a great option for jetting around town.

Horse Farms, Bluegrass, and Corporate Headquarters

You'll be surrounded by miles of softly rolling plateau in the heart of the Bluegrass Region in Lexington. The city is commonly and quite appropriately known as the Horse Capital of the World. The surrounding countryside is teeming with horse farms bounded by miles of white wooden fences. This is a city of opportunity and headquarters to many dynamic companies, including General Electric Company, The Trane Company, United Parcel Service, the University of Kentucky, The Valvoline Company and Jif Peanut Butter. Perhaps you're planning to start your own company in Lexington. If you are, take comfort in knowing that Lexington has been recognized by several magazines as a great place in which to start a business or locate a company.

The small, charming city is surrounded by beauty and natural wonders.
