Lexington is amazing. It is the most beautiful place I have ever lived, and I still love to visit there frequently due to a large amount of family throughout Kentucky. Lexington is one of my favorite cities ever. There are friendly people in a beautiful setting.

What do you like about Lexington-Fayette? Lots of ethnic restaurants (lebanese, real mexican, thai, el salvador, ethiopian, italian, cajun, french, sushi/japanese, chinese, german, vegetarian...) and artistic happenings. Lots of libraries, bookstores, music, an indie cinema, the Kentucky Theatre, tons of normal cinemas, places to buy organic food and farmers markets. I live close to a school that is a spanish immersion program, there are cheap contra dancing lessons on fridays, and there is always a good art show or music event somewhere, you just have to look!
What do you dislike about Lexington-Fayette? Traffic probably, but that's to be expected with so many universities!
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? All over, those things I mentioned are spread out a bit. Downtown is pretty, woodland park is nice, the city is very clean.
How expensive is it? Not particularly depending on where you live, it's a bit inflated in town (where i live) because a lot of the buildings are historical and beautiful and mainly because the college students prefer to be close to campus (like me :)).
Is it safe? I feel very safe here, there are occasional problems like anywhere, but I'm not afraid to walk home alone from my late classes or anything.
How is the weather? Humid in the summer, nice in the spring and fall, and snowy, rainy and icy in the winter.
Additional thoughts? I'm a grad student at UK and what I like in a city is art, beautiful buildings and ethnic food. Its by no means a large city, but for what it is, its packed with great things.
