Lake Cumberland community surrounded by the outdoors
Somerset, Kentucky – Community of 15,000 and the county pop of 70,000. Pulaski County hosts 4 million tourists each year, adding to our economic diversity. Somerset and Pulaski County combine the vacation lifestyle that surrounds majestic Lake Cumberland. This is a medium size progressive and developed community that offers local amenities that we all enjoy on a daily basis. We’re home to one of the largest man-made lakes in the United States with more shoreline than the state of Florida & offer a moderate climate and an incredibly low cost of living. Somerset is the 42 multi-county “regional hub” for healthcare, entertainment, education, shopping, technology and recreation, so there s a lot to do.
The secret here is we are the epicenter of life for 300,000+ in our region, with the amenities centrally located here so although we offer an open, relaxed, pastoral life which is wrapped in the traditional friendliness of Kentuckians, we also have many amenities that are unusual for a town of our population.
If you consider our lower cost of living and milder four seasons, we compare favorably to the Finger Lakes of New York, Cape Cod, Myrtle Beach, or Florida no harsh winters, or hurricanes either!
And we’re under 3 hours to 5 major cities and their International airports about 90 minutes to Lexington.
