The quaint town of Berea is most well known for Berea College, the centerpiece of the community and one of the nation’s leading liberal arts colleges. A crossroads for art and Appalachian culture, Berea is considered the “Folk Arts and Crafts Capital of Kentucky.” At the heart of its crafts tradition are over 40 arts and crafts shops featuring everything from handmade dulcimers and homemade chocolate to jewelry, art, quilt making and even glass blowing. And even though Berea is one of the fastest growing cities in Kentucky, it still has a pedestrian-friendly culture supported by regular 5K runs and miles of bike trails and sidewalks. If you want to live in a town that is bursting with diverse culture, art and open-minded expression, Berea is the place for you.
