Take a look at Danville. It's affordable (as is most of Kentucky) and near some lakes. From what I know, its got nice people with traditional values. [url removed]

Sounds like Berea ,Ky is your place to call home.It is a small town about 30 miles south of Lexington.Home of Berea College and the "Arts Capital of the World".Our elementary schools are Shannon Johnson,Kingston Elementary and Silver Creek Elementary if you want to do a little reseach on those.Our winters are not all that bad,Maybe 1-2 snows per year(that really amount to anything) We have some shopping here-Walmart supercenter,but Richmond and Lexington are not far away and they have much more to offer.I am a real estate broker here in Berea and we have many people come here from the bigger cities just to enjoy the simple life.I hope to see you here soon.

Henderson would be a good place. it meets almost all of your criteria, except for shopping centers. there's a wal-mart, home depot, big lots, target not anything big, but if you go across the bridge to Evansville they have a lot of places to shop, and two malls. and it's only about twenty minutes away.

Well, there is a Wal-Mart, Lowe's and Big Lots (at least it used to.) HD and Target can be found in Evansville.

Not being smart alec here, but I know Henderson fairly well.

It has a very nice downtown area. One of the loveliest in Kentucky, IMHO.

Somerset? Please elaborate.

I've only been there like four times, but every time have concluded that the place is a dump.

You are right I was just being a smarta##. I have lived here a year since moving from Indianapolis,IN and really missed the big city and every thing that you can do there.

Now I like the small town feel no traffic less crime and not as many Jone's to keep up with. There needs to be more shopping here and more entertainment options since this is supposed to be such a wonderful place to come to and enjoy Lake Cumberland.

I not a water person though so need something else besides water activities. Never been to London,KY whats that like?
