You have found a wonderful area to live in. Madison is a historically significant area and lives up to its responsibilities. Northern Trimble County typically uses Madison as its commerce center. If you want rural, Trimble Co KY and Jefferson Co IN are great locations. Close to Cincinnati and Louisville. Probably a bit too far to commute to either, but close to shopping and entertainment

I live in Oldham County but have been to Carrollton several times, I don't think there are any malls nearby other than an outlet, that I am not all that impressed with (think Wrangler, uniforms, etc..)! If you are thinking your usual GAP, Abercrombie, etc.. you might have to go as far as East Jefferson county in Kentucky (Maybe 45 min. from Carrollton) to the Summit shopping center or Springhurst town center. I don't know about whats in Indiana but as far as Kentucky goes I believe thats as close as you'll get. But Carrollton did used to be very busy and they are trying to get back into the swing of things as far as I've heard from their planning and zoning dept. but for now expect cute & quaint local shops and resteraunts. I think the people here are nice, I have lived in the area my whole life and can't think of anything bad to say about it! If you are looking for an area that is smaller and more slow paced buy still close to some action I would check into Oldham, Shelby and Henry counties. Oldham county is still smaller but only 25 min. from Louisville, Henry is, I suspect getting ready to experiance a boom as Oldham county fills up and is only about 30-35 min.from Louisville and Shelby is also about 25-30 min. from Louisville and has very beautiful land!
