My family and I will be moving from Virginia to Lexington at the first of August. I'm starting the house-hunting process, but it's a bit tough going so far. If someone can offer commentary and answers for the following, I'd appreciate it. We have a middle school kid and two smaller kids who will be going to elementary school in a few years. I'll be working at UK, which of course, is downtown. 1. What are the parts of town and/or schools that are generally nice(r)? 2. What are the parts of town and/or schools that should be avoided? 3. Are any of the surrounding counties very nice places to live and within a 20 min. drive of UK? Are there any of these that are great places to find a fair amount of land and privacy, but still have good schools? 4. Are there specific commutes that should be avoided? Wilmore, for example? Does it help to get to work early, like say 0630 and leave early, say 1630? Obviously, general unsolicited advice and commentary are more than welome too. Thanks in advance. DBD Wanna kill these ads?
