If you want the best moving company in Kentucky, you’ve come to the right place!
When you move to Kentucky, you get to be home in one of only four states in the U. S. that is officially a commonwealth. Nicknamed the “Bluegrass State” for the characteristically bluegrass in the fertile soil of the state’s pastures, it is a land of diverse and abundant resources, including the highest per capita number of deer and turkey in the United States and the world’s longest cave system, Mammoth Cave National Park, spanning across Edmonson, Hart, and Barren counties.
If you like mountains, Kentucky is a great choice for relocation. Situated in the Upland South, a significant portion of eastern Kentucky is part of Appalachia. Kentucky's northern border is formed by the Ohio River and its western border by the Mississippi River. Kentucky has a humid subtropical climate and four distinct seasons with temperatures that seldom go below 0 degrees or above 100 degrees.
Get ready to be immersed in a uniquely comfortable community. The state has a Southern culture that is uniquely influenced by the Midwest as well as Appalachia, and it is also known for bourbon and whiskey distilling, tobacco, horse racing, and college basketball. Some notably people from Kentucky include George Clooney, the Judds, Muhammad Ali, and legendary pioneer Daniel Boone.
Kentucky has some great cities to live in. Located on the Kentucky River, Frankfort is the state capital. Frankfort is the home of Kentucky State University, a historically black university situated near the downtown area. Based on population it is the fifth-smallest state capital in the United States.
The largest city is Louisville. The city has historically been important to the shipping industry due to its central location. Recently, Louisville has emerged as a major center for the health care and medical sciences industries by contributing advancements in heart and hand surgery, as well as cancer treatment. Louisville also prides itself in its large assortment of small, independent businesses and restaurants. One such example is the Seelbach Hotel, referenced in The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and famous for a secret back room where Al Capone would conduct regular meetings with associates during the Prohibition era.
The race known in the United States as "The Run for the Roses,” aka the Kentucky Derby, is held in Louisville. This annual horserace held in the first weekend of May is a two week long event with the highest attendance of any other stakes race in North America, and has been a tradition for almost 150 years.
