I would suggest the following:
#3- Paducah

These are scattered about the state but each has so much to offer, I'd check them all out if I could move to any location I wanted to.

If you want to live in a small town away from Crime and drugs try fordsville.
I move here 5 years ago and I love it.

You need to check out Cadiz, Kentucky. We are the GATEWAY TO THE LAKES. Small friendly town close to shopping and industrial parks. Interstate 24 on our east side and Land Between the Lakes on our west side. Fort Campbell to our south. Hunting and fishing abound on & around Trigg County. We have one of the finest State Parks. Down town sets rows of antique shops. Ham Festival every October we have made the world's largest country ham biscuit at this event. During this time crafts and food booths line up and down our Main Street and several side streets. Check out gocadiz.com Let me know if you would like more info.

I live in Oldham County Kentucky, it's a small town, but not too small, right outside of Louisville so you are still only about 25-30min from the action and I love it here! I also am familier with Bowling Green and think it is very nice as well, My family had a cabin on Lake Barren in Glasgow Kentucky which is about 30 min. from Bowling Green and I really loved it there! It is also a small town but not too small close enough to a bigger city but far enough away so that they take things slow. I will have to say the people there were much friendlier than they are here in Louisville and the land is beautifull! They have such pride in ownership there..it really shows!

for the Twins I'd move to Lexington for their school system and their after-school organizations.

my research has shown other places in Kentucky to be fine but if one likes to buy a beer or two becareful of the Dry Counties. Even if you drive to a Wet County to buy beer, the roads are crowded with Dry County residents who've visited the bar in the Wet County. I say that such Dry County drinkers can't hold their liquor nor can they fairly judge whether or not to drive or get a hotel.

Lexington is the place to be for the kids.

Default Thank you

Thanx everyone for replying. Right now I'm tossing up between 2 towns(?) - Hustonville being my first choice and Danville being my second. And I'd like to hear from everyone about any and all info they can give me on these 2 areas. I know that the housing prices are reasonable, esp. compared to Philly. But I'd also like to know about the job situation, crime, shopping and anything else you can tell me that I may need to know. All answers will be appreciated. Thanx again.

I grew up in Munfordville. And it's prolly the greatest small town I have ever been in. But of corse it all depends on what your looking for. There are three factories located close, two are in the city, one is in a town called Horse Cave which is like 7 miles away from here. If nothing else just give it a shot...I think you might like it!

I have been offered a job in Owensboro. I am from a small city near Dayton, Ohio area and am curious to the type of lifestlye. How is the area for parks and recreation? I enjoy being outside. Are there any nearby state parks with camping/swimming/hiking?
