You can't stroll through this small town in horse country without feeling a strong connection to the past.

In Danville's Constitution Square, delegates assembled in 1792 to proclaim Kentucky the nation's 15th state. The original log post office still stands, as do many antebellum buildings.

Still, the town is hardly a backwater: There are plenty of microbreweries, restaurants, art galleries, and boutiques, not to mention the area's regional medical center right in town.

For those craving extra urban amenities, Lexington and Louisville are about 40 and 80 miles away, respectively.
