It is a small town, but very friendly. There are plenty of places to travel on a weekend, such as the Breaks Interstate Park (located on the Kentucky/Virginia border), or a smaller town like Whitesburg, where they have mountains upon mountains to take pictures and gaze at. Pikeville has events and activities to participate in almost everyday, and even has a huge event called "Hillbilly Days" in April every year. It is so much fun!

Its a small town where everyone pretty much knows each other, treat others with respect and help out your neighbor. Christian Values stand tall in our community which allows for our children to grow up in the Lord and able to talk about in school without any reprocutions. It also is a wonderful mountain filled area where there is lots of ability to spend time in nature with fishing, 4 wheeling, riding up into the mountains and really appreciating your surroundings. I love where I live and wouldn't want to relocate.

One of the things I would change about Pikeville is the rampant drug issues in locations. If local law would be stricter on those selling and buying drugs we would see less overdoses and children getting involved in those situations. Our children are our future and we must be protective over this issues.
I love my home town! Every thing is within reach! If big city isn't for you, then Pikeville will make you feel right at home with its city park and locally owned shops.
