Hi,
Well okay im trying to find a town that would be good for me but I have no idea where i can find it so if someone can please help me out. Maybe you could tell me of a few towns you know of that I describe. Thanks!

Well im looking for a small town.
One where theres not much crime
And it is rainy often but not always
I would like a town that doesnt ever really go above 100 degrees
And maybe where the houses have lots of land
I dont want it near the ocean but I would like it to have a lake a small river near by.
lots of green
Good schools and maybe a college near by
a town pretty much where everyone knows everyone
and there are lttle shops in town but you might have to drive a while to get to a walmart or something
and of course where animals are loved
maybe people have horses and gardens
and there is a church where everyone goes on Sundays

So if someone can help me out that would be great thanks

Sorry about your luck- we don't have any place like that here in Kentucky! I hear
Alaska is great this time of year.

Allie, there are plenty of small towns all over Kentucky The great thing about our state is that you have your choice of mountains, rolling hills or flat country. Decide what scenery you want and let us know..Any small town in Kentucky is friendly and will welcome you

Ok, so now lets get down to the brass tacks. Do you need a job, etc? Do you have children, a spouse, etc? Do you need transportation such as air or bus or even train? If you drive how far do you need to go? Daily, weekly, even occasionally?

Hiya Allie! You just described a good portion of Kentucky!

There are larger cities such as Louisville and Lexington - both fairly large, metro areas. If you are not into the "city" feel, here are some more.

Pikeville: I hear this is a good city. There is the Pikeville College, and the Eastern Kentucky Expo Center - it is suppose to be a great facility! I think it's in a reasonable distance to Lexington, so if you need to go to a bigger area to get something - you should be in good shape.

Hazard: I hear lots of good things about Hazard. Someone told me major changes are in progress - plus, I think they're fairly incorporated, from the things I hear.

Danville, as mentioned. A nice place to visit, a reasonable drive to Lexington, etc. It's been a bit since I've been through it.

Somerset: It's advancing more and more. A decent mall, 2 theaters, a Blockbuster, a Toyota dealership, Wal-Mart, Lowes, Office Depot, Goody's, and a Starbucks is even going up! I love visiting Somerset, but feel it's still got a "small-town" friendliness.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions!

You have just described a special place, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina ............... Highlands. At 4,000 feet , it never gets over 80 , no bugs, only rains during the week, lush , almost a rain forest, lots of shops, Walmart is 25 miles away. The city fathers do not allow chain stores , or ugly signs. Good school. University is 20 miles. new hospital. Check it out.

You could also check out Rogersville, TN, population about 4,300. There is a Wal Mart in town though--on the outskirts. It is the second oldest town in Tennessee. My aunt/uncle/cousins still live on the outskirts of the town and it feels like I'm a million miles from any city when I visit their house. Downtown is beautiful, full of old, 2-3 story brick buildings and home of the "Hale Springs Inn"--a bed and breakfast open since the 1820s. There is also a creek on the outskirts of town that is 1 of only 2 in the world that actually rises and falls with a "tidal flow"--like the oceans do rhythmically with the moon. Very intriguing. The creek flows across the road--it's very little house on the prairie. Check it out.
