Review of Kentucky, Kentucky

New To Kentucky and loving it.
Star Rating - 12/11/2011
I lived in Texas for 7 years. The actual crime rate is the highest in the US. I was disappointed in the denigration that existed, the saggers, the drugs, violence, and general disrespect of those I lived among. After a few years of perusing many states and cities, I decided it was time to move and buy a house. I did so and thus far have not been disappointed. The tax structure, neighbors, weather, trees, places to go, and shopping opportunities are remarkable. Now I know there are those who don't see the beauty of Kentucky, but then I am retired, and ready to relax at a slower pace of life. I don't have work responsibilities, I don't need to go to bars, and become a social extravert. For retired persons, I feel that Northern Kentucky offers all I could need and want and from what I have experienced here I see nothing to reply in the negative. I think it depends on your age. If you are younger perhaps this is not the place for you. There is always Vegas, California, New York and Florida to be very active and have an active lifestyle. As for me, I am content, happy, and feel I have made a good decision. Having been in the military for 30 years, I have seen enough countries and states to make a prudent decision. I think I made the best decision that meets my needs. Thanks Kentucky.

Are you still living in Kentucky? How is it there now? My family and I are looking to relocate from NB, Mass, this area has gone straight to the dumps. Cost of living is crazy for very bad areas. And just love them drive bys and stabbings so much fun -_- Really am looking for a safer place. My Hubby's job is also in Horse Cave Ky. Any info would be nice. Thank You
