I don't have any problem with either place, but Murray, being a college town, has a little bit more to do.
It's amazing how a thread can jump 3 years. lol

DANG! I didn't pay any attention to that. Now that you mention it, I suppose it really doesn't matter now. LOL!!!

I wouldn't move to Hopkinsville. There isn't much to do for young adults, and I wouldn't send my kids to any of the schools in the area.

Murray, I'm not to familiar with living there, but I have visited several times. Seems to be a quiet town, college town maybe.

If I had to choose, Murray would be my choice.

I used to live in Murray... wonderful town!


Big city people might find it a little dull, but I had lots of fun there myself. They have the big Walmart now, and plenty of restuarants to keep you from starving. It is a college town, so traffic is a bit crazy, but that is part of the fun I suppose. It is a great place to take long walks all you want. I was never scared for my safety in Murray. The people are friendly and it is just a fun atmosphere.

The climate was pretty mild, yea it got pretty hot in the summer, but the winters were easy to manage. One drawback is/was? I don't think you can buy packaged alcohol in Calloway county. You will either have to drive to Tennessee or Paducah (KY) to get your booze.

I went to college there many years ago, I love to go back and visit, I'd love to go back and stay.

I lived in Hopkinsville 13 years I wouldn't recommend it really awful schools, I now live about 10 miles from Murray and while it's not my favorite town it's head and shoulders above Hopkinsville. Don't get me worng there are a lot of really nice people in Hopkinsville but there is a lot a lot of crime.

I do get how minorities equals more crime? I guess it's because the majority of the majority's crimes are just swept under the rug, and are never mentioned again!

Murray or Paducah are hidden gems within the state of Kentucky. Murray has all the resources that come with a college town. Paducah has excellent medical facilities, really good schools, and plenty of shopping.

I live in Paducah. It took awhile to get used to, but now I feel very comfortable. If you want to find an excuse not to like it you will accomplish that I am sure. However, if you give it a chance you will find it is a really nice place to raise a family, or retire. The cost of living is low. The crime rate is not high. There are plenty of strong churches. The downtown is being revitalized, and the art district is cool. Paducah may not be for everyone, but for those looking for a small town community with big city features, it's just right.
