Knox County Reviews

Knox county is a very friendly place. Mostly everyone is nice and willing to talk. There are many restaurants in Mount Vernon, which is a plus. There is not much to do in the Mount Vernon area. Bowling, Golf, and the movies are mostly all one can do. There is very good school sports in Knox county. The competition is outstanding. The atmosphere that is in the buildings is amazing. The only thing I would add is more activities to do with friends and family.

Very cut little shops and restaurants. Tight knit community and many schools. Could use more adventure.
It's a friendly community, with a nice blend of many different people. It would be nice to see property tax come down.
