I am considering mvoing to Owensboro for a good job. But I have no idea about the state and much less the city. My biggest concern is school for my child. How are the schools in Owensboro (esp. elementary scholols). I am planning a short visit to check out the city. Any suggestions regarding good schools, neighborhoods, restaurants etc.

I'm in Owensboro and my child attended county schools and I was thrilled. Almost all the elementary schools are fairly new. We are on the east side of town and the elementary school my son attended was new 9 years ago and there's another new one in that area now that is just a couple of years old. I think Daviess County has a really good school system.

We have quite a few great restaurants here. Most all the chain type places are here. We have a Panera Bread coming soon, two Starbucks. Local establishments include Moonlight BBQ which is supposed to be famous nationally. American Bounty is a great home town restaurant, more of a fine dining type place.

As far as neighborhoods, there are quite a few. Many moderate ($100,000 - $125,000) priced homes in Landsdowne. Mostly 3/2 type, single story homes built in the 80's. The Summit is on the east side of town with houses ranging from the mid 100's to the $400's or more. It's a bit far out for some people. Lake Forest is a nice neighborhood with homes ranging from the mid to high $100's to the $400's or more.

Good luck!

Owensboro has good medical jobs available now since our local medical community just announced a new 400+ bed hospital campus on 140 acres. Some of the best hunting and fishing anywhere. New performing arts center, new greenbelt with miles and miles of bike trails, beautiful river frontage with $40,000,000 (thats millions) improvements started. Great community with 4 colleges. new library, 4 museums, Lower than average cost of living. Vibrant economy with low unemployment. 3rd largest city in Kentucky and less than 3 hours to 4 major cities. One days drive to gulf coast, Chicago or to the east coast. 4 distinct seasons. You will love the life style.
