Finding a home for rent in Kentucky can take house-hunters through a variety of landscapes and cities that make up the Bluegrass State. But even those who are starting a new job or a new lifestyle in Ohio or Indiana often find themselves checking out a few rentals in Florence, Kentucky. Located in the northern part of the state, this city is just a few miles south of Cincinnati and from the Indiana border, making it a center of the tri-state area. Converging a variety of influences, the community has developed a charm that continues to invite new people who are considering renting a Florence home.
Living and Renting in Florence
Driving from Cincinnati on I-75, travelers will be able to spot Florence, Kentucky from a distance, as the city's famous water tower makes a distinct landmark that hovers over the skyline. As residents approach their rental homes in Florence, they'll continually be greeted by the tower that reads the proud message: "Florence Y'all." According to one source, the structure originally advertised the Florence Mall, but the ad violated a highway regulation. Acting quickly, city officials used some white paint to make the "M" in "Mall" into a "Y." The result was a whimsical calling card for the community that has endured as a charming embodiment of the town's laid-back attitude.
Fun Things for Florence Renters to Do
Residents in Florence homes can assume this relaxed attitude as they make use of the city's various recreational offerings -- including a skate park, family aquatic center, and variety of parks -- or choose to be a spectator of the action. Many residents enjoy going to Champion Window Field to watch the Florence Freedom, an independent minor league baseball team.
