What it's Like to Retire in Elizabethtown

Elizabethtown is a city of 28,000 people located along the I-65 corridor between Nashville and Louisville. It is the county seat of Hardin County. The movie "Elizabethtown" is named after the town, although much of it was apparently filmed elsewhere because many of its historic structures have been eliminated in the name  of progress. Elizabethtown is a "damp" or "moist" town - alcohol sales are restricted to restaurants of a certain size. Photo of Hardin County Courthouse courtesy of Wikipedia and Nyttend.
