EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

Princeton, KY

Pros: We just moved here from the New England area...

Cons: It could be a minus for some people, that Princeton is in a dry county.

This is a good place to live, everyone is laid back and at a shower pace then many other states.

General info: If you would like to live in a small town, that is slowed paced, friendly people and the cost of living is very good...
