Dude I'm glad you like Hop town, I lived there about 14 year and happiness was Hopkinsville in my rear view mirror. The schools are horrid, crime was above average and the inner city part of it was no place to be at night, a lot of drugs.

Don't get me wrong I have a lot of friends still in Hopkinsville and I like a lot of people there but no way no how would I move back there.
I'm with Davart on this one. Hoptown ain't that nice or "purty."

Cadiz is about the best small town in WKY, plus during an emergency you can still utilize much better hospitals in Murray or Clarksville, TN.

Surrounding towns like Madisonville, Russellville, Oak Grove, and Cadiz are much nicer and cleaner than Hoptown.

Default I like Hopkinsville

I live in Hopkinsville now and enjoy it tremendously. Our mall, like many small southern towns, is struggling to attract big box retailers as they've chosen a different growth strategy with stand alone stores. But, I go there frequently enough for our Goody's, Penney's, Bad Bath and Beyond, and our shoe stores.

We have lots of good stores and plenty of entertainment options. And, we're close to several other communities if you need to get a Target fix or want to eat at Red Lobster, etc...

We have several fun and family-friendly events coming up, including:

The Derby Arts Festival on May 3rd
Little River Days Festival May 16-18
Kiwanis Soapbox Derby June 13-14

I'll agree that there are nice communities around us in Cadiz, Pembroke, Oak Grove, etc...but, I'm proud to be from Hoptown and am pleased with the experience of raising my 4 and 6 year old in the community. It's a lot of fun to go to Saturday morning soccer at our oustanding YMCA, YMCA Hopkinsville/Christian County, and see all of your friends while the little ones kick until they can't kick anymore!

Come to Hopkinsville, you'll like it.

Even thought like I said, I'd move to Hopkinsville, I agree with Rapunzil about Murray. Being a college town there are more activities. MSU has the Lipizzaner stallions this weekend.

Default Madisonville, KY - great place to raise a family

I love Madisonville, KY. It's a small town (pop about 25,000) with only a few places to eat, but the folks are kind and there isn't so much trouble for the kids to get into. Many of the social events are sponsored by churches, and you don't have to belong to one to enjoy the "party." Crime is far enough away to relax, and the cost of housing is great! Hanson Elementary and Madisonville North Hopkins (High School) are great schools. The local soccer team is killer, too!

I'm sad to say that my husband's job is taking us from here come June. The home we bought when we moved here would have cost half again as much anywhere else. Cost of living has been quite kind to us.

Ive lived in hopkisnville my entire 21 years of living and I dont see any reason why anyone would want to move here. There isnt crap to do, most people are stuck up and look down on you if you dont come from the right family, everything is based on who you know, and crime and drugs are bad. We have the population to really do something with the town but nothing ever really gets built, or it goes out of business 6 months later. There arent many jobs around here except fast food or factories. Some people might disagree with me but thats how I see the town. A wasted opportunity.
