I love this town. I live here not because I grew up here; but because this is a town I wanted my son to grow up in as well. This is the best place, without being able to afford a private school, for him to receive an education. The best change this town could make would be to allow it to grow into the town it is becoming. The small businesses won’t allow this to happen and we are losing business to other towns because they won’t allow other businesses to come into our community. This doesn’t just keep jobs away, revenue down; but people are still going to those other places to shop and spending their money to buy the resources they need whether the store is here or not. We are losing out because of the few “Mom and Pop” stores that won’t allow the change for the lining of their own pockets.

This is a small town, but has great people in it. There is no hustle of the city life, but you live close enough to it. It has many historical sites to visit. Also is on the lake, actually has Land Between the Lakes (LBL) in the outer limits of the town. It is a great place to raise a family. You don't have to worry as much about your kids riding bikes or walking down the road as you do in bigger cities. Crime is low in Cadiz due to the wonderful police force. This is one town you don't want to miss.
I've lived in Cadiz for over 15 years and have found this town to be a nice place to settle down and build a life or a nice place to settle down for retirement but as far as growing up and remaining her many students decide to leave Cadiz because they aren't fond of the smallness of the town and much prefer larger, much busier cities. Cadiz's wildlife and nature is overall beautiful, definitely a cozy place to be.
