I can give you all the info you need on the Ft. Knox area - Ft. Cambell is a little further and I am not as familiar with it.

Living near Ft. Knox with kids - Elizabethtown is a very good choice - hometown feel, great schools, much to do - and close to shopping, malls, I-65, etc.

Radcliff area is closer to Knox, and is beginning to expand, but is definetly more a military town. Not alot for the kids to do, but getting better.

Google both of them, look at the school systems. See which one would better suit your kids needs - that is where I would start.

Then, think about your housing situation. In the city of E-town you can find affordable homes for sale or rent, all within close proximity to the city schools.

Check out:

I think these links will at least get you started. Both towns are located within Hardin County.

Good luck to you.

Default move to Hopkinsville

As a resident of Hopkinsville, I can honestly say that I am not sure what "gang" problems exist. I know that our local Police Department is tough on gangs. But, I think that's a positive stance for our community. Our Police Chief and Sheriff mean business when it comes to keeping our community safe!

I know that I never feel threatened when out in town and that my wife and kids love this place. My children are soon to be school age and I won't hesitate to put them in our schools. However, my wife does teach at a local private school so we may just keep them there.

Hopkinsville is a great place for raising a family. It's so close to Fort Campbell and less than an hour from Nashville. Check out www.movetohopkinsville.com for more information!

Red face Hopkinsville

My husband and I are retired Coast Guard and seeking a mid-sized community with good health care, shopping (a mall) and good priced homes with reasonable property taxes. We live in Western Washington and the cost of living here for retirees can be daunting. What are some of the good subdivisions in the area in the price range of about 100 to 125K? Quiet and well-maintained is impt to us. How far a drive is it to Fort Campbell from Hopkinsville? Thanks for any addl info you can think of. Pat Carter
