Catlettsburg is a slowly dying small railroad town in Northeastern Kentucky. Catlettsburg is located in the trinity-state area of West Virginia, Kentucky,and Ohio. The drug epidemic is growing here and there is not a very diverse or booming job market. We do have a short list of healthy and fun family activities that range from an play theatre to Rush Off Road outdoor ATV riding range. If you enjoy outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, and riding then this is a great place for you, as long as you can find a job making a living wage.

Catlettsburg is a small town. The town itself does not have much happening but it is right next to Ashland, a larger town. I wouldn't say it's a super friendly place but it works for my family.
Catlettsburg is a small eastern Kentucky town that seems to be declining. I love my hometown but there isn't much here anymore. Most jobs have left town, the only nightlife is biker night at Giovanni's pizza.
