If your talking about Lexington KY then I will answer this way. It is a great place for anyone, and there are several quality golf courses in the city and within an hours drive in all directions. I have been here for 9 years and have made it a mission to play every single course in the area, I am not done yet. Not that I have not tried but that everytime I think I have hit them all I find out about another one. They range from municiple par 3's that are fit for kids, to championship level courses that host professional events. You can generally play 10 months out of the year, but there are days in mostly every month when you can get out to play, but they get full quick. Property taxes in Fayette County are about $1007 per $100,000 in assessed value for the full service areas. There are pockets that are cheaper that may lack a service like cith garbage pick up or street sweeping, and the counties surrounding Fayette are all different but a good rule is the above number. Property prices are affordable in my opinion in terms of most of the country, and there are several developments underway targeted to retirees.
