Benefits of Living in Kentucky

There are a number of reasons that a person would move from New Jersey to Kentucky. There are many differences beyond sprawling cities and horse country. These differences can be overwhelming if the person is moving from a place like Trenton and moving to Berea. When considering the move, a person or family needs to consider what will change in the life that they have built for themselves. A person in New Jersey will need to understand the differences in prices, space available, and culture before they pack the first box.


Gambling Culture

People who live in New Jersey are around legal gambling all over the state. In Kentucky there are casinos, but these have sports betting and slot machines. If a person wants to play poker or other such games, they will need to go out of state. There is legal online gambling in New Jersey, while Kentucky is fighting the online card rooms to make them feel unwelcome. A person who has gotten used to playing live games will not have the chance. A person may get the chance to bet on horses, but they will not have a chance for much else.


Horse Country

One of the differences between driving through New Jersey and Kentucky is the amount of open space. Kentucky has large tracts of space available for the many horse farms that the state is known for. New Jersey has some open spaces, but there are far more urban areas. Kentucky is around five times the size of New Jersey and it shows. People can drive for hours and not worry about seeing a town in Kentucky. There may not be as many horse farms as people think, but there is more than enough room there for them.


College Sports

There are many more opportunities to get a chance to see pro sports around New Jersey. In Kentucky, people are more active fans of college sports. Deciding between Kentucky or Louisville is a decision that can bring a different set of friends. People ask new bosses who they support when they start if they are new. College football and basketball are major for many of the residents of the state. The conversations will be about either sport from August until March. This can be a huge change for someone used to the sports scene of Jersey.


Cost Of Living

One of the first things that someone will notice when they go into a store in Kentucky is that most things will be cheaper. The taxes are not as expensive for people in Kentucky, which drops the prices in every other part of life. Rent will get a person much more than what they can expect in many places in New Jersey. Any luxuries that people want takes less out of household budgets. The lower costs can also mean that jobs pay less in certain sectors, which is why they are able to keep costs down for their customers.


Political Shift

Kentucky is known for being far more conservative than New Jersey in its politics, laws, and culture. Even the Republicans elected in the state of New Jersey are considered far more liberal than any in Kentucky. This leads to fewer taxes, which leads to far fewer government services on the state level. This also means that people will have more privacy, but will have fewer chances to get recreational marijuana. The state is also known for open carry and being open to people being for the right wing stance on gun rights.


Educational Pursuits

There are community colleges, colleges, and universities all over the state of Kentucky. Consider the reality that the state is known for horses, agriculture, and mining. Higher education has to support that and the other educational needs of the citizens of the state. That means that each institution has to have its own identity beyond the college sports that make national broadcasts almost daily. This means that people have a choice in the college they attend and part of that decision is the view they get when they are outside.


Living Conditions

If a person wants to live in a city, they can in Kentucky. The state has a chance for people to live next to rivers, in the mountains, on a large farm, and many other locations. There are chances to live off the grid all over the state or be close to any number of places that have events for the entire family. This is all possible in Kentucky with the many different areas that span the state. A person can live on a farm and live an easy driving distance from a university, jobs, and cultural sites for entertainment.


Bourbon Heaven

Any person who loves bourbon will love being in the state of Kentucky. With 95 percent of all bourbon in the world being made there, this means people can visit the distillery of the brand they prefer and get what they want. This is confused by the counties being a patchwork of varying levels of alcohol sales. There are bus trips that tour many of the distilleries for people who are wanting to get the most out of the state. This allows people to have as many taste tests in a day as they can handle and not worry about driving home.

Kentucky Offers Something for Everyone

Kentucky has all types of situations for people to get to know if they are moving there. New Jersey residents might miss some of what they know, but they will gain a whole new world with wherever they move to in the state. A person can learn why the state is known for blue grass, visit the streets Mohammed Ali grew up around, or see the mountains that are filled with coal. The state is partially what people see via television, but it is also so much more for people to experience. Planning for a move can allow all of this to be ready when the unpacking starts. The state is welcoming for all who want to come to live there.
