Thanks everyone. I have all those places on the list to visit. How are the public schools in those areas outside of Louisville and Lexington?

Get your job (s) first if they are career type jobs, then depending on the job, you will find plenty of property in your price range nearly anywhere in Kentucky. The variable will be the size and age of the house.

Default Louisville - Cherokee Park area

Hi, my wife and I recently moved to a rural community in Kentucky. It is a near her birthplace and we had an opportunity to buy some farm land there. I had to commute each day so moving was really not a big deal as far as travel to work.

We lived in Louisville in the Highlands area in a beautiful home on the edge of Cherokee Park. It is for sale and if you are interested I will keep watching this blog. This place is close to everything, has great places for eating and entertainment. There are many very good schools in the nearby area including universities and community colleges. You can be in downtown Louisville in less than 15 minutes or walking in the park in 30 seconds. I used to commute to the Lexington area in about an 1hr 10 min. Frankfort in about 50 minutes. If we had stayed in Louisville, this area is where we would want to be, but fate took us in another direction.

My family and I are also wanting to move to Kentucky from Ocala, Fl in the spring. We moved here for a better life and found the cost of living here to be ridiculous! My husband and daughter are on disability and we can get no kind of help for them. We are very low income right now, I am tied down at home caring for them and our dogs. We are getting tired of living in a 21 foot camper because that is all we can afford. If we would have had a pile of money Florida would have been a better place but we want to move back where people are friendly, crime is low, and we can get something bigger than a 21 foot camper to live in! We really wanted to move to Owensboro or in that area. Is there another area anyone can reccomend that offers cheaper housing and allows pets? We are considering moving in the spring.

I would suggest posting this as it's own thread. Good luck!
