Get in[edit]

Elizabethtown, often called "E-town" by locals, is a hub city located in Hardin County, Kentucky. It is served by Interstate 65, linking Louisville and points north with Nashville and points south. The Blue Grass Parkway links Elizabethtown with points east, including Lexington. Heading west is the Western Kentucky Parkway, which brings traffic from the Land Between the Lakes and Paducah.

Drink[edit][add listing]

City voters approved full retail alcohol sales on October 4, 2011, making "E-town" fully "wet". Previously, alcohol sales had been allowed only by the drink in certain restaurants (determined by seating capacity). Its neighbor of Radcliff and near-neighbor of Vine Grove also voted wet on the same day. The rest of Hardin County is dry. with two current exceptions and a third pending:

  • One private golf course (Pine Valley Golf Course) received approval from local voters to sell alcohol by the drink.
  • A second private golf course (Elizabethtown Country Club) has received the same approval for alcohol by the drink, but has not yet received a state license to do so.
  • The city of West Point, in the far north of the county, allows sales by the drink in restaurants that seat at least 50.

Contact[edit]

By phone[edit]

Since February 2014, Elizabethtown, as well as other parts of Kentucky previously served solely by area code 270, has had mandatory 10-digit dialing, meaning that when making any call within that area, even a local one, you must dial all 10 digits. This followed the introduction of a second area code, 364, that covers the same area. There is no geographic area code split—any new phone in the region may theoretically be assigned a number in either 270 or 364.

Because of the relatively recent introduction of 10-digit dialing, you may see an older 7-digit number (YYY-ZZZZ) on some signs. If you see a 7-digit number on a sign, assume that this number is in area code 270.
