Florence : Kentucky


What It Is Like to Retire in Florence

Florence is a suburb south of Cincinatti with a population of about 30,000. It is somewhat famous for the "Florence Y'all" emblazoned water tower that is visible from I 75. (Photo above courtesy of Wikipedia and C. Matthew Curtin). The sign originally advertised the "Florence Mall", but when the sign was found to violate local signage regulations, a little paint made the conversion. The city is home to the Florence Freedom independent minor league baseball team, who play at Champion Window Field in Florence.

What people are saying about Florence

We\'ve been through Oregon and camped in Florence at the casino mentioned in this article many times. We\'ve always found Florence to be a delightful place to visit with a great river east of town. We think that the hot ticket would be to get a small home or RV lot 5-10 miles east of town where the fog wouldn\'t be as much of a factor but there was still access to the river. The old town is very nice with some excellent restaurants and cute shops. It\'s a friendly town near other wonderful coastal towns.
