When considering relocation to Hopkinsville, Kentucky, one should consider low cost of living and the expectational quality of life. Housing costs are low, and basic living expenses for a family are low moderate. Both public and private schools are readily available for students, and the public library is well-supported by the community.

This city is very small. The population is less than 2,000. There is not very much to participate in around the town. We have sme community places. We do not have many stores to shop for clothes. The town has seen a spike in violence in the last few years. There are some new stores opening up, like a new healthy juice spot.

Hopkinsville is a growing city located 15 miles north of Fort Campbell. Its close proximity to the Army base allows it a constant flow of soldiers looking for a close get-away from post without having to travel over an hour to Nashville, the largest and closest big city. Hopkinsville has a rich history, having three different museums: one for the city itself, one for Fort Campbell, and one for the Trail of Tears, which passes through the city. The city hosts numerous events through the year like its biggest event, the annual Summer Salute: a three-day festival in downtown that ends with a concert outside the county courthouse.

Hopkinsville is a great place if you enjoy conservative “small town” life. However, for those who prefer a more liberal lifestyle, it is ideal to travel about 25 miles south to Clarksville, Tennessee, which has been rated the number one place in the United State for millennials to live! Clarksville has also been ranked as one of the fastest growing cities in the US for the past seven years.
