There are several reasons why the Northern Kentucky region rivals cities like Chicago, New York and LA (cost of living, central location, education to name a few). A recent article in The Lane Report had a very different perspective – they focused on Arts and Culture!

Arts, Museums and Events – Oh my!

Arts – If music is your thing, you must spend an evening with the Kentucky Symphony. Like a more traditional palette? Take in the artistic talents showcased at The Carnegie. Your senses will never tire from all the amazing things to experience here.

Events (and Festivals) – Northern Kentucky is so enriched with interesting history and heritage, there always seems to be a fun festival celebrating something or someone. A  favorite is the MainStrasse Maifest located in MainStrasse Village – so colorful and lots of foods and beverages to temp your taste buds!
