Henderson is one of those "hub" towns. It's where people from the surrounding counties go to shop and eat out. I know some people who would rather shop in Henderson than go to Evansville, In., across the river. I have lived in Henderson a couple times and lived in the area for 25+ years. It's a nice town, easy to get around.


[quote=jcm1986;5619216]Well, there is a Wal-Mart, Lowe's and Big Lots (at least it used to.) HD and Target can be found in Evansville.

You still at it, jcm? Big Lots has been on Second Street in Henderson for several years.

Question Have you moved Yet

Bowling Green, KY Sounds like it meets your criteria? Have you moved yet?

I was hoping someone might recommend a town, or at least a general area of Kentucky that might suit our needs and wants. Some things we are looking for include:
-low crime
-not too much snow
-no really severe weather (F3-F5 tornado, huge snowstorms)
-near a college & elementary school
-no flooding
-possibly a nice small town near a big town
-shopping centers

I know this is a lot to ask for, but we were wondering if there is any area in Kentucky that meets all/most/some of these things.

Any feedback as to nice places to live in KY or even places to stay away from is greatly appreciated! Thanks.

For a smaller town take a look @ Grayson, KY in Carter Co. It has a University and several elementary schools. It is only about 30 min for the local mall and all the shopping that you could need.

Bowling Green is definately a good place to look into. It is true that weather does seem to go around Bowling Green like there is a bubble. We will get an occasional strong storm but the real stuff seems to be everywhere else. Growing town but still has that small town sense, not too far from Nashville, kind of an inbetween place for Louisville and Nashville. Crime rate has never been a big issue either. Western Kentucky University is in dead center of the town and there are tons of elementary schools, county and city.
I definately recommend BG.

I would take a look at Georgetown. It is a nice community. Big enough that you won't be running to Lexington all the time. I know several people there and have sold several houses in G'town, everybody seems happy there. Plus it has 2 interstate exits and a good local economy.

You'll want to avoid eastern/southern Kentucky, aim for Jessamine/Scott/Clark/Madison county.

Oldham and Bullitt are nice too. Anywhere in NKY is nice.
