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.

Henderson, though a bit small, has a decent city feel to it. There are quite a few restaurants and a decent amount of things to do for fun. There are ample job opportunities. If you were to get tired of the slightly small town feel, Evansville and Owensboro are both just 30 minutes away. Henderson is also not very far from my family, which allows me to see them fairly often.
I thoroughly enjoy Henderson Kentucky. Henderson is a small town with the small town vibe. Everyone knows one another. There may not be as much to do as other places, but we make it work. The people here are what make Henderson a great place to live.
