We came to explore the town as an option for relocation. Saddened that we were met with disappointment. Housing, for its location to Nashville, Clarksville and Land Between the Lakes, is moderately priced and there are some super charming old ones in need of love. The town has a few charming local restaurants and has typical retail chains that a person would need and a variety of churches. That's about it for redeeming qualities. Run down, dirty and trashy was our overall impression. Not much to do for fun locally. There is a movie theater and we found one establishment with karaoke. Even the town parks were lackluster.

Hopkinsville is the picture of a small southern town. It is closely knit, and continues to grow everyday. However, with a majority of the population being elders, there is not much to do for today's youth. There are no "hangout" spots for teens to safely go and enjoy themselves. Most teenagers in the town only hang out in someone's house,which can get crowded very quickly, or on very sketchy country roads. If I were to change one thing about Hopkinsville, it would be it's attention to its youth. Without them, there is no future in Hopkinsville. So Hopkinsville needs to treat them with respect in order for them to want to call Hopkinsville their forever home.
There is a lot of positive momentum going on in here! There is a large new shopping center under construction which will include a Hobby Lobby, TJ Maxx, Ross, PetSmart, Maurices, Rack Room Shoes, and several others. Another retail center nearby is scheduled to begin construction next year. Several other smaller retail centers have opened or are under construction. We have a great Greenway System rail trail and a popular water park. There are many additional new projects in the works, including infrastructure. We have a four-year university campus which offers Bachelor's and Master's degrees as well as a progressive Community College which is adding a new Emerging Technologies Center and will include many new Allied Health programs, including Pharmacy Technology, Paramedic Technology, Radiography, Respiratory Care, Physical Therapy Assistant, and possibly Medical Laboratory Technology. There are many industries located here in 3 industrial parks plus a mega-site under development. Hopkinsville is also the best site in the world to view the Solar Eclipse next year with the longest duration.
