    Default Thinking of moving to Marshall county

    I am fed up with Louisville. We are approaching 60 yrs and love our lake time. Looking for property near the lake. I know several on here live in the area. Can you kind folks advise me on areas to avoid and such? Not unlike asking for honey holes, but need to know if there are better areas to live and we are on a budget. We want a small garden and access to woods and water. Thanks in advance and sorry if this is not the place to ask

    Good Morning Killum! I live on the south end of the county by Hardin. I don't know what your budget is like but the closer to the lake, the higher the cost. I'm about 5 miles from Aurora and modest homes are the norm. Toward the north end around Calvert City you have several "plants" everybody works at and traffic at certain times of the day is pretty heavy. Not really a lot of crime like the big cities but do have some thieving that goes on about anywhere around here. Folks are friendly for the most part and make good neighbors. All in all, it's a pretty nice place to live.

    Moved everything to Marshall county from Illinois last year best thing I have done. Great area wonderful people. Good fishing close to everything you need Between Murray and Paducah
    I also have a house for sale close to the lake with a slip in the community dock.

    I bought a full time home near Moors resort a year ago May. Love our neighbors and neighborhood ! Area of Taft & Dusty trail.

    Thanks for the response. Our first trip down was to Moors and it has been great in that area for us too

    With the current situation with the Asian Carp, a lot of folks are pulling up stakes and property is going up for sale everywhere.
    The future lies in the hands of those way above us in government. From my understanding, I haven't seen a public sector millionaire donating to radiate these fish.
    We are all at the mercy of our government right now. Only time will tell...

    Thanks bandchaser. I've been watching this as well. I don't know what will happen but it will play out eventually. I hope we have a decent fishery for the future.

    You could move to the farside of Taylorsville Lake, and have some isolation and easy access to both cities. No Asian Carp issues either. I couldn't see buying property on KY lake or the Ohio, due to the damage that the carp have done.

    We moved from the Louisville area two years ago. I'm down here in Lyon County, in Kuttawa. The fishing has certainly declined a bit...I'm talking bluegill/redear/crappie.

    I know why you are wanting out of the Louisville rat race, been there, done that!! Let me say, food options are not nearly as plentiful. You will have to go to Paducah for major shopping/food. Paducah's exit 4 is akin to Clarksville over in Indiana. You have tons and tons of food/shopping.

    Marshall County, I really like, we've talked about moving over there.

    Thanks for the feedback on the food and shopping. One thing I have noticed is Barkley side has less options for shopping also.
