I spent a day and a half in Pleasant Hill, Ky recently. I'd call it urban sketching, but it's urban dating back to the 1820's. It's a gorgeous full village where you can stay in the old houses, eat at a lovely restaurant, and see craftspeople working during the day. It's one of the most peaceful places I know, and I spent my time just walking and sketching and playing the banjo. The perfect retreat.
