Great small town! I enjoy being in a small town, in the country and away from the city. I feel safer being out of town and away from the main town and areas. Cynthiana is small enough to not have a lot of people, but big enough to have a Walmart to prevent us from community 40 minutes to the next town.

I would like to see a change in the attitudes of the people in this town. People just don't feel the need to help others any more and it is truly sad. If you are to help someone less fortunate than you, it is as if you are being judged negatively. This is backwards. Overall, people are selfish and don't seem to have any issue turning a blind eye to those in need.
I have lived in this town my whole life. From growing up, going to school, and working here, I have seen so much change and growth for the better. We have so many locally owned shops and eateries, and are a short drive away from major towns. This is small town county living done right!
