Hello everyone, my family is planning to relocate to Kentucky around February or March. My husband and I have been trying to find a place in Kentucky with affordable housing and good employment opprotunites. Great education is a must! I would like to find a little town next to a bigger town. I was raised in the country and would like that for my children. I am use to driving 30-40 mins to work and shopping. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much

My husband and I moved here earlier this year. We LOVE it! We have no young kids, but anywhere seems to be great. Our neighborhood is full of children and coming from a rural town it's a great sound (especially since our grandchildren live so far away). Crestwood is very affordable and the great thing is everything is soooo close! I've heard great things about Oldham County schools.

I see a theme here, @nothim. You've posted four statements that make no sense other than to troll people who have chosen to live here. Seek help for whatever issues you have. The rest of us love it here.

Check out western Kentucky. Cadiz City of Cadiz : Welcome to Cadiz, Kentucky! is a good town with a great school system. As far as a bigger town close by, Hopkinsville Welcome to City of Hopkinsville, Kentucky is 18 miles away. That's where the "weekend shoppers" go for groceries, go out to eat, etc. Cadiz has restaurants and groceries, but like just about anywhere, when people want to go out to eat, they like to leave town. Plenty of houses out in the county. The same with Murray Welcome to City of Hopkinsville, Kentucky Murray, Kentucky - MyMurray.com and Mayfield (where I live) Home and Benton City of Benton. For Benton, Mayfield and Murray, Paducah, Ky. is the big town to go to. Good school systems and Murray has an outstanding university www.murraystate.edu

Congrats, it is a very quaint family friendly area. Louisville is very close when you get the itch for the bigger city arts, sports, dining, and entertainment.

Oldham county is NOT affordable. Bardstown might suit you!

Why do you say Oldham County is not affordable? I help people buy and sell real estate all over the Louisville area and I just wonder if you have a personal history in Oldham County, or do you have some history that caused you to post such a direct statement?

For the record, I do live in western Oldham County, but could care less where a person buys or sells or rents in the area. For example, people with children need to live in Oldham County, but people with special employment reasons may need to live in Hardin County or maybe in Southern Indiana.

When a person is deciding where to live, they must consider the cost of their commute (private schools could even be less than a 45-60 minute daily drive.

Lots of variables come into play when deciding where to live.
