In what part of KY are you? My boyfriend and I are headed there in about 3 weeks to look for land so that when he retires we can move. We are looking for a place where we can purchase between 5 and 10 acres, build a house, get some horses, close to a lake (IF AT ALL POSSIBLE) - and right ON a lake would be even better..but I know that can get pricey..we don't want our neighbors on top of us anymore. We're from Chicago - we live IN the city and we both hate it but for now we're stuck.

I'm between Kentucky Lake and Reelfoot Lake, south of Paducah. Land ranges in price from $2K to $5 acre and up to $100K/acre on the lake if it's deepwater. Cheap if it's not. A 5 to 10 acre lot is easy to find. Actually there are small horse farms for sale ever now and then, so you wouldn't have to build.

Default Life in the slow lane, but easy enough to jump in the fast lane

I currently live in Berea, Ky, I am going to Eastern Kentucky University which is 12 mile drive. I don't recommend Berea (sorry if I offend) it is just way too small, if I want to anything with my family (shopping, entertainment, we still have to go to Richmond where the university is). I lived in Lexington, Ky for a year, they have everything you could want for shopping and entertainment, just no yard to play in. I am from Paducah, KY on the west side of the state. Paducah is where I would live again and again, in fact I can not wait till I am done with school. Paducah has a mall, 2 super walmarts, 3 Krogers. There is 2 bowling alleys and a movie theatre, plus outside of Paducah there is a drive in cinaplex. There is Land Between the lakes for the water enthusiasts and plenty of land on the outskirts of town for those wanting 5-100 acres of land all to themselves and a 15-30 minute drive to town. If you want serious shopping then Clarksville/Nashville is 1.5 to 2 hours south, St. Louis is 3 hours west, Chicago 7 hours Northwest, Louisville 4 hours east. Paducah even has an airport outside of town for easy traveling in the skys. Yet it is a small town, we don't lock the doors or cars majority of the time. Our schools are good and not overpopulated. We have the quilt show every year (april I think) and we have a special relocation program for artist to relocate. If you like to gamble Harrahs Casino (I worked there for awhile, they offer decent pay for the area) is right across the river 15 minute drive in Metropolis, Il.
They have a news station there and they usually have a job opening.

What is a great place that feels like a small town, with nice people and great for raising kids? A place where they have nice mall, restaurants, shopping, and parks, and things for adults and children to do. I need to find a place that offer good job opportunities and easy commute. I need a place that has great weather and not a whole lot of people but still feels like the city, but small town. Does this place exist? A place with no major violence. for examples not walking outside and getting shot nor kids getting ignitiated into gangs. I wont my kids to grow up well rounded and out of trouble.

Oldham County (LaGrange/Crestwood/Goshen/Pewee Valley/Buckner) likely qualify in every aspect of your request. Weather will change, but it's seldom wild or extreme. Not to say it can't be, but all things considered pretty good.

Default the simple life.

There are people in New York City that can live a simple life. There are people in rural Kentucky that live a complex and hectic life. You are the person that sets the pace and determines the outcome. Sometimes easier said than done though.
