    Louisville is a great city, and progressive. I could go on for a while about all the good things about this city, but let's just say it is one of the best-kept secrets in the country. (Although, when Conde Nast picks one of your hotels as the #1 hotel in the country, it's not so secret any more.)

    Solar is growing, slowly. We had some credits to help with the expense, but they are gone, I think. Hybrid cars everywhere, lots of bikes. Not really enough wind to make that work.

    Lexington and area is beautiful -- horse farms, lots of rolling hills. Kentucky has some excellent state parks, as well.

    Oh, and by the way -- Louisville is represented by John Yarmuth, who started his campaign to unseat Anne Northup in 2006 by saying "Look, let's get this clear right up front -- I'm a liberal."

      On election night, you want to see the Democrat (I assume Grimes) pile up a big lead coming out of Lexington, Northern Kentucky, and especially Louisville, in order to hold on as the vote comes in from very conservative Western Kentucky.

      Parts of Kentucky are already sounding saner than some parts of Florida.

      Louisville is (or used to be, circa 1995) the #1 city to test pilot restaurant franchises, because the cost of living is so low that many people can afford to eat out often.  And compared to Houston, where so many people can afford to eat out 7 days a week, Louisvillians have an eclectic taste palate which gives a good representation of the country-at-large.

      It was also recently named the #1 "foodie" city in the USA, since there are a lot of outstanding restaurants at every price point. However, it's heavy on the meat and potatoes, so vegetarians beware.

      •  Nah, man, we got the veggies (0+ / 0-)

        City's been moving in all directions on the food front. We've even got one local vendor who makes vegetarian "chorizo burritos" and "philly cheese steak" -- from tofu.

        Also LOTS of local-grown stuff, including one organization that delivers to pick-up points.

        LOTS of food choices.
