Exclamation Possible move from Chicago

So much great information on here. I have to say you guys really do a terrific job on selling the Bluegrass (especially the Moderator, stx12499)

Long story short, my wife and I are considering a move from, uh, shall I say, a little cooler climate back to my home state and the great city of Louisville. We are both architects and really have no connections to anyone professionally in the city...so jobs may be difficult for us to obtain if we move.

We are both in agreement that we love Chicago. We love the culture, the food and access to so many great things. We also know that we do not like the other things that come along with a huge city...traffic, taxes, higher housing costs... and we would like some more information on some of the best places around the Highlands area. I have been doing enough research and can tell that we would like to move to a more eclectic area of the Ville, but still want to have the privacy and slower lifestyle that is calling to us.

Does anyone mind if I start a conversation with them about the local neighborhoods, housing prices/tax estimations, job prospects and some really interesting things going on around the Highland/Downtown area? My wife and her parents are coming down to Louisville around Thanksgiving and I want to be able to give them a good show, but I really don't know any good sources to find out what is going on locally in town.

Hey, any help is greatly appreciated! Here's to hopin' I will be back in the Bluegrass in '08!

I used to live in Chicago. I believe some people in Chicago are starting to discover Louisville, and there may be a bit of a buzz about the city starting to build. I have lived in several different cities, and traveled to almost every major American city (I'd say 75% of the top 50 metros, as it is a hobby of mine), and Louisville is one of my favorites in that it offers much of the big city amenities without all the hassle. I would be happy to discuss the best areas, as well as up and coming areas. If you are married and have ties to the state, this is a no brainer move. I can, however, see why someone who is in their 30's and single or in a field like finance may favor Chicago. Send me a private message if you like.
