We have lived in Oak Grove, KY for about a year and a half now. We moved here from South Georgia. We bought a house easily and for a decent price, because the housing market is great. I have nothing but great things to say about Oak Grove, at least our neighborhood. I have heard of crime in other parts of Oak Grove, but I have yet to experience any of it myself. My favorite thing about our town is the free community center with access to a nice gym, computers and printing, fitness classes, and more. It is a family friendly place with a lot to do in the spring and summer months. We went to the Salute to Summer Festival here in Oak Grove last year and had a blast. We don't have kids so I have no idea how the schools are. It's also not far from Nashville if you are looking for fun nightlife.

I love that living in Oak Grove rent wise is cheaper. I would like to see it easier to like get our tags for the car and also for replacing a lost drivers license. Maybe make it easy like Tennessee possible to get it replaced online for the driver license. I am afraid of how much it will cost me to get my car tags this year I've heard nightmares with that. Other than these things I would not change anything. I come from a small town so I love it here!
Depending on where you live, Oak Grove can be a quiet place or it can be a loud place, especially if you live close to the state line. Being a small city and right next to Clarksville and Fort Campbell, it can get really busy due to the military going on lunch break or getting off from work. I would like to see more sit in restaurants. Yes, it is a small city, but having to travel to Clarksville to eat can get pretty frustrating.
