Historic Midway Kentucky
Over the years, I have spent some time over in historic Midway, Kentucky. I'm 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. I have had some fabulous meals at Quirk. One favorite: I had the HUGE pimento sandwich with a cup of tomato basil soup. Both were the best I have had in forever! YUM!
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, youu can spend a lovely fall afternoon feeling like you are vacationing. The Midway Kentucky shops have great stuff to buy. I found quite a few things that I just had to have. Now I am 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 and historic buildings in Midway.
The weekend of Sept. 20 & 21 is the Midway Fall Festival in historic downtown Midway.
