Hi Kentuckygurl! I've been to Harrodsburg many times with my family. My brother lived in a little town called Burgin, right outside the city limits. His kids enjoyed the schools, although they are kind of small. If you are planning a move there, check out some of the smaller towns around it. I found Burgin to be adorable, especially when you can drive to Lake Herrington in a matter of minutes. It is mostly rolling pastures, black fencing, and views to die for. In his 5 years there, there was 1 crime that was "notable". The rest was just petty kids pranks, and a few DUI's. Hope this helps! If you are heading there, make sure to visit Fort Harrod, which we found fascinating and have visited many times.

Totally agree with kichenwich - not much bad happens around that area, and the view is wonderful.

But...If you are wondering aboout jobs, you will need to look toward the bigger cities (Lexington maybe) unless you are self-employed or have something in mind. Not alot around in the country areas (or cities either, for some reason), but if you do a google for the KY and Lex. site themselves, you can locate the larger companies around and places you may find employment.

I have to say - I am very proud of the state park system in KY - very beautiful - and the land itself is hard not to stare at - the Knobs at sunset are spectacular!

Thanks for the info.. I have been doing a lot of research, this helps a lot. I live in the mountains, there is not a lot of open spaces here anymore. It is getting crowded. I would like to find a small town with wide open spaces, like it was here when I was a kid.

How far is it from Harrodsburg to Lexington?
