I have lived in Henderson, Kentucky for all 17 years that I have existed. In my experience, I would say that regardless of what many people my age digress about how it's 'terrible here' and how they 'can't wait to get away', Henderson Kentucky is a pretty average town. The crowning piece of this contemporary rural community is definitely our natural surroundings, specifically, the Ohio River, and John James Audubon Park. The geological significance of this town is grand, and inspires many local artists to follow in the renowned John James' footsteps, creating works based off of the luscious flora and fauna.
This town is on the small side. There is nothing major that is located in this town. If you want to do any real shopping or dining you would need to go across the bridge to Evansville, Indiana. I will say the cost of living is lower than Evansville as well as pretty reasonable.
Henderson is a great town for families. There are many things to do here like go to the local movie theater, go bowling, roller skating, and visit one of the multiple parks in town. Henderson has a great downtown area that welcomes everyone. With the parks, the restaurants, and the multiple stores, Henderson is welcome to everyone.
