Relocate to Kentucky Lake & Barkley Lakes

Home | Relocate

Thinking of relocating to the Kentucky Lake area?  Well, you're certainly not alone, as many people are now choosing to call western Kentucky and northwestern Tennessee their home.  With an abundance of educational opportunities and recreation options, a slower pace of life perfectly suited for retirees, beautiful natural scenery, unique dining experiences, and exciting attractions for all ages, it's not difficult to see why this area is so attractive a destination.

The communities of Murray, Kentucky, and Paris, Tennessee, are consistently ranked among the top retirement destination in the United States. 

In 2008, Murray was recognized by Back Home in Kentucky magazine as one of the top retirement communities in Kentucky.  In 2001, it was selected as one of only eight cities in the state as a Certified Retirement Community by the Kentucky Tourism Development Cabinet.  Murray also received the "Friendliest Town" award by Rand McNally in 2012.

Paris is famous for the World's Biggest Fish Fry, with its week-long hometown celebration and catfish feast.  The Paris Landing State Park Golf Course is home to six courses to hone your golf skills, while the park itself is a perfect setting for weekend getaways or family reunions.

Quality educational opportunities exist for all ages in the Kentucky Lake area.  Comprehensive and nationally-recognized city and county school systems offer excellent elementary and secondary education experiences in Livingston, Lyon, Trigg, Calloway, and Marshall counties in Kentucky and in Stewart and Henry counties in Tennessee. 

Murray State University is perennially ranked as one of top universities in the south by U.S. News & World Report.  With satellite campuses in Paducah, Hopkinsville, Madisonville, and Henderson and course offerings online, MSU provides more opportunities than ever to obtain a college degree.

MSU is also home to the men's Racer basketball team, one of the winningest programs in NCAA Division 1 basketball.  The Racers host their games in the CFSB Center, an 8,600-seat multi-purpose facility which plays host not only local sporting events but also great concerts, family events, outdoors and trade shows, and conferences.  High school sports and local recreational sports leagues for all ages provide ample opportunities both watch and participate in athletics on a year-round basis.

For the outdoor enthusiast, the Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area provides endless opportunities for enjoyment.  Managed by the United States Forest Service and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, LBL is a prime destination for biking, camping, fishing, hiking, horse riding, hunting, picnicking, sightseeing, water activities, and wildlife viewing. 

The Woodlands Nature Station serves as the area's gateway to LBL's rich natural attractions, while the Elk & Bison Prairie features a 700-acre enclosure of freely-roaming elk and bison which have been reintroduced to the area.  Visitors to LBL can travel back in time with a visit The Homeplace 1850, which features a working history farm, or travel to the stars at the Golden Pond Planetarium and Observatory.

When you're not too busy taking advantage of all the recreational opportunities the area has to offer, you can enjoy some wonderful and unique dining experiences, such as Patti's 1880's Settlement in Grand Rivers, Kentucky.

Voted the number one Restaurant for Tourism in the state of Kentucky, Patti's has also received the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Blue Chip Award and a Pork Producers Award and was voted the Best Small Town Restaurant in the Southeast United States in the Southern Living Magazine's Readers Choice Awards. 

Patti's is also home to numerous gift shops and activities and features a dazzling Festival of Lights each year to celebrate the holiday season.

As you can see, there is no shortage of compelling reasons to consider a move to the Kentucky Lakes Area.  ExploreKentuckyLake.com features a list of realtors (see below) who would love to assist you in every phase of your relocation process.  Who knows?  We may even see you soon!

Rocky Shores

Although the terrain in this part of the country is typically flat, you'll still find an occasional rocky shoreline like this one on Kentucky Lake.
