    OMG! I can't believe you people are talking about Nicholasville like this. I was born and raised in Nicholasville. I am not a redneck. I am a very well-educated, hard working citizen. Nicholasville is a beautiful city. Lexington is nice too but traffic is just as bad there! Perhaps those of you who feel it is necessary to pass judgement on Nicholasville might be jealous that your city was not chosen "as the number one small city in the country for affordable homes".

    I can tell you that you would have to DOUBLE this median home value/price range to be anywhere you would feel safe living here! When my husband and I looked at property recently, we were amazed to find property priced nearly identical to Lexington in terms of square footage/cost. I am not sure where they got their figures from in this study, their data must be 5-10 years old. In addition, I would agree with "WHAT??" - as a former commuter to Lexington for work, I would not go back to driving that route for any amount of money. I am a stay at home mom currently, but when I do go back to work, I intend to look for work anywhere I can avoid that stretch of road!

    But who really wants to live in Nicholasville? It's a terrible redneck town!

    Of course Nicholasville tops the list...who really wants to live in Nicholasville. Who really wants to drive Nicholasville road everyday. Besides look around the folks in Nicholasville. No thanks, I'll pay more and reside in Lexington.
