My fiance is trying to convince me to move to the Northern KY area... Walton/Union/Florence (his friend is moving to Walton, which is why he wants to move there). He works in Carrollton so we would need to stay in that general area to keep his commute to under an hour. We currently live on the east side of Louisville, so the commute will be about the same.

Please don't suggest we just move to Carrollton. I want to still be within 15-20 minutes of restaurants/bars/etc. One of the best things about our current location is the proximity to the dog park. I've looked online and it looks like the closest dog park to Walton is way up in Burlington.

We actually went and looked at a few houses in the NKY area. Looks like you can get a lot of house for decent money out in those outlying suburban areas, as long as you don't mind having your neighbors 2 feet from your house.

I'm trying to find a reason why NKY would be better than Louisville... any suggestions, ideas, rants or raves?

N. Ky. is quite as unwelcomingly provincial as Louisville, not that that's saying much. However, Cincy/NKY folks are either pretty much nice or rude with everybody, whereas in Louisville if you're not from there or they don't like you for some reason, those people go well out of their way to let you know it.

On the whole, customer service in both cities is about the same, although in both cities, like anywhere, you'll find your teenage crowd (usually teenage girls, for the record) that act like they're doing you a favor by checking your groceries out.

I think the Eastern half of Louisville is quite similar to NKY. Looks the same and is similarily in terms of culture and European origin (mixture of German Catholics and Anglo/Celtic Protestants). The western half of Louisville to me feels very Southern, actually very similar to Birmingham AL (IMO).
