Mt Sterling - good location for Lexington trips

A few friends of mine moved here after high school, due to its location. It is in between Morehead, where my friends take classes, and Lexington, where they have jobs and a better nightlife. So when I come to Mt Sterling, it is to stay/visit my friends.

Mt Serling Factoids

Hugh Forbes, the first settler here, was allowed to name the town. He selected the name Mount Stirling, after a town in his native Scotland.
Somewhere, somehow, someone misspelled the name and Kentucky never changed it to the original spelling.
