Everybody knows everybody here. Most folks like drama and gossip too.
Melvin's is still fairly good, and there are new dining/snack/cafe options popping up around town regularly.
We have the smallest Walmart in the Nation. It's NOT the super version.
Good shopping, manicures, entertainment, mid and upper scale dining, and fitness opportunities are an hour or more away.
There are break-ins from time to time and occasionally a drug bust.
But we have southern charm. Good sweet tea, good McDonalds coffee, 4 dollar stores and 4 stop lights each direction.

What I like about Elizabethtown is the fact that it is mostly quiet, small-sized, and rural. But those are probably the only good things about Elizabethtown. Elizabethtown has no diversity whatsoever, majority of people or discriminatory/racist. No great quality places to eat, almost every restaurant (which are very few other than fast food places) have many complaints from customers. Food markets are limited, maybe 3-4 in the whole area. Few clothing stores & all are on one street. Whether you need good food, clothes, and so forth you have to drive at least thirty minutes out of town for shopping malls, supermarkets, and so forth. The hospital in Elizabethtown is without a doubt, not a place to go if you are ill unless you do not truly value your health. The schools are also very low ranked. Basically, whatever you truly need for the sake of your health, and other needs-- you need to leave Elizabethtown.
Elizabethtown is a wonderful place to live. However, it would be great if there were more activities for smaller children along with a better library with more technology. I love the recent additions that were made to help become more healthy and the recent programs to curb prescription drug addiction. Truly, a lovely place to live with great hopes for the future.
