Madisonville, Kentucky is a very nice place to live. Very family oriented with a lot of schools close by. The only thing that needs to be changed about Madisonville or added to the town would be some kind of nightlife. There is nothing to do at all here. We have no bars no clubs but we do have a bowling alley. Sometimes we have Friday Night Lights downtown. The town closes down some streets, and they have live bands come and they have tons of things for the kids. But what about us Adults!
Madisonville is an average mid-sized town in the south. While there are things to do, many people travel to the larger surrounding cities for shopping and leisure trips. The schools are alright, but crime can be very bad depending on the neighborhood.
