Which is better overall?

Taxes-Sales and Income right now. Property tax eventually will need take into consideration
Schools-Gotta be good schools. In a school now with a county that is OBVIOUSLY far behind the rest of the state in special education and tired of dealing with it constantly.
Cost of Living-Cheaper the better but trying to find a 3/2 under 800$ a month.
Towns with some character,tree lined streets,kids playing outside etc
Don't want something real close to a major city but within a 20-30 min drive of one.

We were looking in Eastern Ky and SW Va.

Oh and if it helps at all it MUST BE between Interstate 75 in Kentucky to Highway 29 in Virginia. Between those 2 points.

I would opt for SW Virginia. In my opinion it has a lot more going for it in terms of nicer cities and overall livability. I find much of Eastern Kentucky quite rural and not offering a whole lot in terms of jobs, things to do, quality schools and decent places to live. The Roanoke area has some nice options in towns like Blacksburg, Radford and Salem, or a bit further north in Buchanan.

Not really leaning towards either yet. Both are bout same distance between families I guess its gonna depend on seeing each city/town we have on our list and the school system and employment possibilities.
