I am relocating from Georgia to work at the new French Lick casino. I would like to relocate to Kentucy and not have too long a drive to get to work.

I would love to live in a nice community with a good high school, good restaurants and other things to do. Any suggestions as to what town I should look at? What community? I have never been to Kentucky before!

I grew up in western Kentucky and fairly familiar with southern Indiana....

First off, you do realize that French Lick is in Indiana.....I am sure you do...but that said it is pretty far from just about anytown. 50 miles south of Bloomington Indiana...and about 60 miles from Louisville....all on two lane roads. Not sure why Kentucky versus Indiana.....but Louisville and its surroundings would be the nearest city/town....and with that looking at a good hour drive one way to the casino.....Best bet would probably be to live on the Indiana side of the Louisville metro area....such as New Albany...which would cut the drive down a little....but the map still shows about 45-50 miles to French Lick. But Louisville or Bloomington would be your choices if you are looking for a decent size town/city for which to do things. Evansville Indiana is also a larger city....but just as far away.

So no matter where....you will have a commute.... Might want to ask your employer about temp housing in the local area....that way you can find out where other people in the area live... it would help since you have never been to the area before.

That area of southern Indiana is fairly hilly...although it doesnt snow/ice a lot, you will encounter it.

Best bet for you, might be Jasper or Huntingburg, Indiana. Dubois county is well developed and fairly populous, as well as being immediately adjacent to the French Lick area. There's no way to conveniently and affordably commute to work from Kentucky, its much too far.
