Kentucky – The Don’ts of Visiting Kentucky

Real Estate Tips:
Keep in mind that there are investment opportunities past just traditional stocks and bonds. Commodities are an asset class with both risks and rewards but can provide hedges against inflation. Also look at real estate income trusts to invest into the real estate market without being tied to individual pieces of property. One way to diversify your investment portfolio is through real estate. Although real estate might not have the glitz stock market investing, it is usually a solid core investment part of a portfolio. Often, real estate will hold its value when the market takes a downward turn, thereby; buffering any market loss.

    1. Kentuckian here! I recommend visiting my city of Bowling Green. We have some attractions such as the Corvette Museum and Aviation Park. We also have a really great diner called Doug’s Motor City Cafe. For the general Kentucky, do not mispronounce Louisville. Foreigners will pronounce it like loo-ee-ville or loo-iss-ville. Its not. Its loo-ih-ville or lul-ville
