The Joy and Benefits of Living in Lexington

Are you thinking of living in Lexington?

A conversation with Paul Campbell.

My wife Kathy and I live in Lexington just south of New Circle Road.  New Circle Road is used by all the residents as the key landmark to describe location for everything in the city.  We live just south of "The Circle" in the subdivision of Gainesway, which is located just east of Tates Creek Road.  Our home is less than four miles to downtown Lexington, 2 miles to Fayette Mall and less than three miles to the University of Kentucky campus. We are about ten minutes from interstates 75 and 64, fifteen minutes from the airport and five minutes from several very good shopping centers including Lexington's largest, Fayette Mall.

We are only a very short drive to the childhood home of Mary Todd Lincoln, Waveland State Historical Park (our favorite free place to take our grandchildren), numerous horse farms and the Horse Park.  Traveling to these destinations is quick and easy because the city is fewer than 300,000 people.  Kathy and I often are humored with complaints of traffic in Lexington.  There is hardly any traffic compared to other large cities we have visited. 

 

Lexington's Green Efforts

Fayette County Urban Government is working to establish trails that should eventually make riding a bike a safer journey around town.  Last year a ten mile trail (The Legacy Trail) opened that originates near downtown and terminates at the The Horse Park.
My wife Kathy and I walked a portion of this trail with our grandchildren last fall.  It is very wide and is frequented by recreational bikers but we did not see any commuters on the trail.  The trail does pass by Lexmark so it does offer an opportunity for those employees.
