Midway Kentucky is a Toutist's Secret! Shhhhhhhh!
Last weekend, I spent some time over in Midway, Kentucky. I've been there many times but I am amazed how much it is starting to feel like being in the wine country towns of California.
The charming little town has a plentiful amount of restaurants, great food, and shops. My girlfriend' and I had a fabulous meal at Quirk. I had the HUGE pimento sandwich with a cup of tomato basil soup. Both were the best I have had in forever! YUM!
Later, we took a stroll down the sidewalks of the downtown formerly called "Middleway"...now Midway. It was named that by railroad executives because it was both halfway between Lexington and Frankfort and halfway between a potential line from Georgetown and Versailles. Maybe they should have called it "Halfway". The first lot sold in 1835. Home of Midway College(Kentucky's only 4 year women's college) that was chartered as The Kentucky Female Orphan School in 1847.
Anyway, we spent a lovely summer afternoon feeling like we were vacationing. The Midway Kentucky shops have great stuff to buy. I found quite a few things that I just had to have. Now we are wanting to go back to try more of the restaurants, sit out on the patios with a glass of vino and explore more streets. I'll let you know what we discover next time...
