Nicholas

Nicholas County is located on the northeastern edge of the Inner Bluegrass region of Kentucky and is an easy two-hour drive from Louisville or Cincinnati. Additionally, Carlisle, the county seat of Nicholas County, is just 35 miles northeast of Lexington, making it an ideal location for businesses seeking to lower their cost and attract workers, while being close to a major city.

The general region is noted for its scenic beauty, history, horse farms and hospitality. Carlisle's picturesque rural character and rolling countryside are typical of the Bluegrass belt where winding roads lead past manicured farms, through wooded glades and small villages.
