Hello all,

I am in my late 20s, single and moving to Louisville in the spring. I will be working at one of the hospitals in the city and would appreciate advice on location to live. I am not interested in the freshly post-college scene nor family (late 20-something's with babies) scene. I love outdoors and being active. I'm a runner and biker and love a good yoga class. I have two dogs, so a place around dog parks or walking paths would be preferable. Love a good farmer's market and a chill, homey cafe to eat lunch at. All advice would be greatly appreciated!!

I am still new to Louisville myself so I wont be able to offer as much info as people who have lived here longer, but a lot of things you are looking for was what I was looking for and I am happy to have found a good neighborhood that checked off a lot of boxes.
I found a townhome on the far east side of Louisville on the edges of the Middletown neighborhood near the Gene Snyder freeway.
I also enjoy running and hiking and some biking and was pleased to find the Louisville Loop and Beckey Creek Park system a half mile from my place. I have to say these parks are extensive and well planned, especially if you are into biking. Miles and miles of paved trails that eventually will circle the metro area. Also, the complex I rent my townhome from is home to an OM fitness club onsite which offers all sorts of courses, yoga included, which I found pretty unique to rental communities. It's called LC Idlewild. It has a good mix of young single professionals, families, and retirees.

This area is somewhat suburban, but also has some non-chain cafes and places to eat.

Hi KY_transplant,

Thank you for the great information! I am excited to know there are other like-minded individuals in Louisville. I will definitely check out that apartment complex. Are there any prominent run or bike clubs in the city? Also, I've heard there are a fair number of festivals and such. I live in Houston currently and miss the feeling of community.

Thanks again!

Honestly....Louisville has much more to offer than those suburbs.

I would focus on the area around cherokee park. Historic, walkable, urban, and very close to the two main hospital districts. More food, restaurants, nightlife, bar, and just young and hip service type places.

Think Rice Village or something, but a bit more "hipster."


The Highlands of Louisville, KY USA home page

That's the best basis for exploration of the city, and there are lots of other awesome urban neighborhoods!

You would fit into the highlands crowd around where my cousin's liquor store is on Bardstown Rd. Old Town.
