I just retired from the state highway department and, after 27 years of getting called out in the middle of the night many times to salt and plow the roads, I'm kind of looking forward to it! When it snows next winter (IF it snows) I can sit back, prop my feet up, and think of the song..."Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!" lol

Lol My dad also worked for the highway department in Minnesota where snow is plentiful. He doesnt miss it. I work in social services and my specialty is group homes. How is te pace of life in Kentucky? Cuz I could use a little quiet.

Smile Low Crime/Nice people

I guess I'm asking for what everyone would want, a nice place to live where the crime is low. I heard Ohio is terrible crime wise, so I wouldn't want to be near it. Where in Kentucky could I find a nice place to live, good caring neighbors, a feeling of being in the country, but not more than about 45 minute drive to a larger city where I can find whatever I want? I love bluegrass music if that helps. Oh, and I need a Super Walmart for my son to transfer too. Thank you.

I suppose it depends on your definition of a larger city. I love Kentucky, but I would recommend moving if you don't have a job and don't have income, that's a recipe for disaster. If you are only talking very large cities that leaves you with Northern Kentucky, Louisville, and Lexington.

About Ohio, it's all about where you are. Yes the crime rate is high in some parts, and a lot of cities especially in the northern half are complete dumps, but some parts are OK. I still prefer Kentucky, but before dedicating to a move I would take a road trip and find the place you can't live away from.

Best part of Kentucky to live

Stay south of Richmond and east of I-75

By what you said Paducah, Mayfield or Murray are pretty good places, everyones nice here, Your very close to the country (i live in the country and live 15 minutes from Paducah) which has just about anything that other Kentucky cities do. Nashville is about an hour away if you need the "big city" feel and theres a few super walmarts here also.
