Midway KY Is A Point Midway Between Lexington And Frankfort KY

Midway KY Is A Point Midway Between Lexington And Frankfort KY

Last Thursday I got to re-visit Midway KY. It hadn't been in the plan earlier in the week but I received a voicemail from someone that was researching to do a real estate article on Midway. I think they had read what I wrote earlier posted on Localism. Midway, Kentucky is a Tourist's Secret! Shhhhhhhh! 

Anyway, I was asked to contribute some quotes and a few pictures. I sure didn't need much of a reason to want to go back. That place is magical!

So...I asked one of my best friends to accompany me for the day and we loaded up the camera and notepad and we were off. We laughingly called ourselves, "Blonde Roving Reporters"!!

We first drove around town to get a better idea of what kind of what was available in housing and the types of architecture. Mostly historic I found. There was plenty of restoration going on.

After I took a few pictures we wondered into City Hall (A former bank built in the 1860's). to ask a few questions, I took some notes, then we decided to relax a bit across the street at the Cafe @ Le Marche. By that time we were starving and the club sandwiches the owner rustled up for us were fantastic. 

As soon as we were back on the street a train came up right on the track in front of us. How exciting to be up close and see a different kind of train on the track. I took a few quick pics of it before it scurried on down the line.

As many times as I have been in Midway KY, this was the first time I had experienced a train on the Main Street. Maybe it's just me, but I thought it was way cool! You could sit outside at one of the cafes and have dinner, glass of vino and a train all at once! Wow! 

  

We wondered on down the street to visit a few shops, enjoy the sunshine, talk to friendly locals and get a few extra pics like these...

Well, I'm sure we will be back again soon. We had a blast!

It's a great place to unwind and kick your feet up for a spell. You need to go see this for yourself. Tell them I sent you!    

Finding a new home in the Bluegrass has never been so easy!

Lizette - What's the population of Midway KY, it looks like a great little town to call home.

The photos look like a step back in time,  when downtown was the only place to shop and everybody knew everybody.     I didn't know there were still towns like this.
