Barbourville Reviews

There are hardly anything big box stores in the area and it is hard to get everything you want and need in the area, especially relating to clothing and food. Mom and pop shops are popping back up in the area as a part of revitalization of our small towns.
You can walk pretty much anywhere you need to be in our small town and cars are about the only major transportation form there is, there are no public transportation systems.
We are not really around natural disaster areas so there are rarely any bad things to happen except some occasional flooding on backroads and the occasional strong thunderstorm. Jeans are the most important item in my wardrobe.
