Worthington Ky is a wonderful quaint town with a beautiful view of the Ohio River! The schools are great and the residents are as friendly as they come. Everyone looks out for their neighbor and it is a close knit community!

Worthington is a quiet, small town nestled in the corner of Eastern Kentucky. I have lived here my whole life. It's a safe town to hangout with friends with an elementary school, a park, a gas station/diner, and a fishing spot. Moving away and seeing the world is something I strive for when I graduate, but Worthington is a nice place to come home to and get away from the busy world, if just for a little while.
