Life in Eastern Kentucky

Wild, beautiful, and modern

We have a one-of-a-kind community people love. See for yourself — plan a trip to stay over at the most popular destinations in EKY.

During the day, I write mutual fund software in Java. During the evening, I get on my motorcycle and experience the beautiful mountains. Eastern Kentucky is full of adventure. Within minutes, I can be off-roading in my jeep, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, fishing in a number of lakes and rivers, and seeing wild horses, deer, and elk. With high-speed internet, I can work anywhere, and there’s no better place to work, live, and play than Eastern Kentucky.

We wanted to come back. And it's a nice place to come back to — it's a jewel.

Remotely developing software for a company in Chicago from home allows me to live and raise and family in a place that most of my coworkers would pay to vacation in. I plug in and go to work. I unplug and go on a hike.
