Glendale will be almost an hour drive to Ft. Knox. A lady i work with lives there and says that it takes her anywhere from 45 min- 1 hour to get to work. Depending on traffic, weather and now road construction.

Default Areas around Fort Knox

Wanted to give my two cents.
* Radcliff is close to Fort Knox, but that's about it. It is a collection of small shops, car dealers, and fast food places. One of the other things to consider is the school. We were concerned about the high school and North Hardin is not one that we wanted our kids to attend (drugs, gangs - though it's not a problem like some big cities).
* Elizabethtown has alot more going for it but it does take a bit to travel to Fort Knox on a daily basis. The problem is not only the traffic (2 lanes in each direction separated by a grassy median) but it has alot of traffic lights AND it seems there is a turn-off every quarter mile or less (when I mean turn-off, think of the two lanes in each direction and there is a section that allows you to turn into a business on the other side of the road - no lights, just a simple turn point). E-town does have more stores and decent places to eat, but it does have alot of traffic (thanks to the poor planning when they built 31W). You have to go to the outskirts of E-town to find a nice quiet place.
* Vine Grove is a nice small town, but for us, the problem was the school (North Hardin)
* Brandenburg is about 9 miles to the west of Fort Knox. The town itself is small and only has a few places to shop and eat. We live close to Brandenburg (about 7.5 miles from the Brandenburg Station Road Gate) in a gated community called Doe Valley. Doe Valley does have it's own golf course (we did not join because we don't play golf), but most of the houses are not on top of one another. Most of the streets end in cul-de-sacs and they have a lake, 2 beaches, tennis courts, swimming pools, a marina, and a club house. We initially rented a house ($1250 per month) but this was for a 3100 sq ft house, all brick, 3 years old, surrounded by woods. We now own the house and are very happy. It is very quiet out here and it doesn't take long to get to Fort Knox.

You will find there are many small towns and homes that are scattered throughout the countryside.

If you have more questions, drop a line here and I'll try and help.

Steve

Another vote for Vine Grove here. Radcliff is an ugly,commercialized strip full of fast food restaurants and tattoo joints. Etown is a nice town, but too much sprawl on North Dixie Hwy going towards post. Brandenburg is ok, traffic from Brandenburg to the gate is very light.
