When (or if) do you think Louisville will be "discovered?"

When more diversity flourishes there.


I love Louisville (I have Thoroughbreds in IN and visit often), but it's still Kentucky - I'd live there if it weren't for that fact. I'm moving back to CA after my daughter graduates in 1.5 years - I've seriously considered Louisville but just can't take the ultra-conservativism of the Midwest in general. But that's just me.


I wish things would change soon.

No. But let's face it, when you go to Disneyland, do you think it's real? Just think of Times Square as the new Disneyland of sorts for Yuppies and the 1%. Not a place worth visiting. I guess a lot of NYC is now like that. The East Village used to have CBGB. Now what's there? A high end clothing store.

Anyway, I liked Louisville before they "fixed" it.

It is a mixture of the South, Appalachia, and Midwest all tied into one package. I've lived in the Upper Midwest before, zero similarities at all to Louisville metro area.
