Clarksville, TN – By now you’ve most likely heard Clarksville was named the number 1 “Best Place to Live in America” for 2019 according to Money.com (Money).
Let’s just start by saying this: the list of The Best Places to Live, is a prestigious one, in fact, it’s one that has been around for over 30 years, and that says quite a bit in and of itself. Money publishes its Best Places to Live in America list yearly and uses “economic health, cost of living, ethnic and economic diversity, public education, income, health and safety, ease of living, and amenities metrics”. All provided by research partner Wilytic according to Money.com.
Danville, KY – I discovered the Kentucky State Barbeque Festival quite by accident.
On a trip home from another assignment, I had the greater part of a day to kill. In a search for events in Kentucky, I discovered this festival. It was already in progress, and it was on my way home, so I took a beautiful ride through the Kentucky countryside and discovered Danville, Kentucky.
Danville has a population of just under 17,000. In 2011, Money Magazine placed Danville as the fourth best place to retire in the United States.
It’s the home to Centre College, which hosted the U.S Vice Presidential debates in 2000, and 2012.
Clarksville, TN – A couple of years ago, I had taken a trip to Madison Indiana. Friends had told me there was some incredible riding opportunities there, with roads all along the Ohio river.
I was also planning to visit Jeffersonville, Indiana and interview their police department, which was starring on the A&E series, LivePD.
The Jeffersonville interviews fell through, so I had some extra time on my hands and when I searched for nearby events that I could visit, the Kentucky State Barbecue Festival popped up.
It’s held in Danville, Kentucky and was just a few hours from where I was, so off I went. What a great decision that was!
Clarksville, TN – I spent three days in Ouray, Colorado with my friends, Kim and Craig. Their hospitality was amazing! Their home is beautiful, and with mountains at the front door, and mountains from the back deck, I couldn’t have been more blessed and fortunate.
We spent the days riding the mountains, visiting Silverton and Durango Colorado and all points in between. My only regret from my time in Ouray, is that i didn’t get out to visit any of the locals, or take a walk downtown. I also didn’t visit one of their famous “hot springs.”
As I said before, this part of the country gives you MANY reasons to come back again, and again.
