For the most part Radcliff is like any other town in the United States, a place to go to school, work, live and have a family. A comfortable, mostly safe town that has just a few unfilled potholes and uncut lawns but the character comes from the less than average that Radcliff has to offer. It is diverse in its people, from the veterans due to the close proximity to Fort Knox to the activities it provides from the high school. Radcliff does have a budget problem, being the small town it is and can get quiet boring but it has a interesting history that can pull anyone into it.

Radcliff is a local military town. It is located right outside the Fort Knox. Due to its proximity to the military post, the community has come together and supports the military. It is a very quiet and quaint town with minimal shopping and food choices. However, it is a short drive to nearby Elizabethtown and Louisville. There is little to hardly any crime and the local police force is always out on the town. I would like to see more businesses come to Radcliff as it has the capacity and population to support the economic growth. Cost of living is low and many families seem to thrive in this quiet, Kentucky town.
Radcliff is a fairly typical military town stuck between 2 communities with more resources. Even though resources are limited and it isn't the most attractive city, it is easy to access Elizabethtown and Louisville as well as Fort Knox. Schools and housing are average in quality, with a shortage of quality apartments and above entry level jobs.
