Stopped in here to get a couple of hot coffees after we gassed up down the street.
Just like a Burger King anywhere in the world: fast counter service at a cheap price.
And we took the coffees to go (after stopping in the clean restrooms to wash hands and face that were a bit stale from driving).
Kenova is a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to safety on vacation. On the one hand it is statistically safer than most American cities when it comes to personal crimes (rape, assault, robbery) but on the other hand it is well above the normal crime rate for theft (auto and property) and burglary.
Additionally, there are five sex offenders registered in Kenova.
to learn more about this possible hazard, see the website below.
So a smart tourist in the area would lock car doors, keep valuables out of sight (use the motel safebox or trunk of the locked car) and keep an eye on the kids. To be safe, do not go into unfamiliar places alone, late at night.
If you are sensible, you too can have a safe visit to the area.
Due to a substantial increase in initiative in the public safety commission for Kenova, thefts (non-auto) are down 25% and assaults are down 50%. The crime rate for the area is down by nearly 40% which indicates that the work of the police department over the last three years is working to make a better and safer community.
When we are vacation, one of the problems we have is locating an appropriate place of worship. Hopefully the information below will help you.
