Cumberland, Kentucky is a very beautiful town. It is a very small town that has friendly citizens. However, I would like to see more jobs open up for this town.

Very friendly atmosphere. A small town, so everyone knows each other. Cute, rustic feel. Not very many places to eat or things to do, though.
