I've heard horror reports on smalltowns in Southern Indiana, and areas slightly to the north. If you live in a smalltown, within an hour of Louisville, do you hear anything in the news/in the area about meth in your town-so we can stay away.

Moving from Louisville bc it's just too big. Moving outta KY bc we still have to commute to downtown and all the outlying areas here are too expensive for land and a house. Indiana is cheaper (not sure why that is either!)

Thanks!
Michele

according to google maps, it's an hour and 15 from Louisville to columbus, IN ... that probably means I could make it in an hour ...

I hate to mention specific areas by name on an open forum, but I do know of some. I live in Clarksville myself.

You are right, property is cheaper over here. Part of it has to do with taxes, I think. When my husband and I were looking we quickly came to realize it was about a $20K+ difference for the same size house in comparable neighborhoods.

I will direct message you if you'd like.

How about Switzerland County. The capital is Vevay(pronounced Vv). Zip code 47043. We moved here 4 years ago from Indianapolis and we absolutly LOVE it. We are an hour from Louisville or Cincinnati and 2 plus hours from family in Indy. If you want a small town you cant get any more beautiful or small than or county. 2000 census for the county was 9000+. I hope this helps.

i would HEAVILY suggest the Madison Hanover area. Its closer than Columbus is to Louisville and Madison would love to have you for sure. Madison and Hanover welcomes everyone and its my favorite region in southern indiana. You have recreation to outdoor hiking at Clifty Falls State Park and you have an outstanding river walk along the Ohio River. Madison has a regatta that atracts hundreds of thousands of people each july 4th weakend.

If you move to Madison/ Hanover you will NOT regret it!

I agree with Domergurl. Columbus is only 70 miles to Louisville. I can get there in about an hour to hour+5.
