Stanford Is The Most Unexpectedly Cool City In Kentucky

I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
Those of us who are lucky enough to call the Bluegrass home know Kentucky is easily the most underrated state in the country. It’s true. Kentucky is world-renowned for its bourbon distilleries, horse racing, and national parks. We’re also home to some of the most iconic attractions, unique accommodations, and beautiful destinations in the South, and we are quickly becoming a formidable player in the culinary arena. And on top of it all, we have some of the best small towns in the country; places that are irresistibly charming and effortlessly cool. This is epitomized by little locales like Stanford, a town in central Kentucky that’s quite possibly the most unexpectedly cool city in the Bluegrass State.
