Hello
For the past year or so, my family and I have been preparing to move to a new state. We currently live in northern Indiana and cannot stand living in this horrible location any longer.

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.

You have just about named any of 120 counties in Kentucky. Depending on your transportation needs, I would consider Henderson, Louisville (especially one of the adjoining counties), Union (NKY area), Danville-Harrodsburg-Georgetown.

Oh, and when I said low crime, I was hoping for crime lower than the U.S. average, listed on the detailed profiles.


Also, I hope for the lowest humidity possible in KY

goldpolkadots, ky is humid all around really, being a climate expert here i can tell you that in the northern 1/3 of the state you are more than likely going to get 25-30 inches snowfall annualy with occasional 8 -10 inch snows. down south no as much snow but not as hot as say paducah or lousiville. u want no tornadoes? southeastern ky is the best spot, generally very little snow from year to year probably 10 inches or less as for low crime i'd def look into london or somerset, london in particular less severe weather a little higher up near the mtns hope this helps and good luck

Yeah, about a year ago, when I was doing some serious research for KY, I ran across article(s) that said that the Lexington area and a lot of central KY has a sink hole problem.?

Nevermind about the sinkhole thing, I found what I was looking for here:
Sinkholes

and here:



So, I just looked up Georgetown, London and Somerset KY and they all have higher crime than the U.S. average


Are there any areas in KY that are in need of Elementary teachers?
