I'm from Albany, and I'm scoping out cities that I might want to move to once I graduate college. Any little slice of information or opinion of the city, or any comparison to the arctic tundra that is upstate New York, would be appreciated.

Go south young man.

Virginia and Kentucky are good compromises between north and south. Virginia is best for people with plenty of income. Kentucky is a poor person's paradise, because you get a lot more for your money.

After college, I moved South to Kentucky from Northeast Ohio (another arctic cold land) and it was a good decision. More temperate, warmer weather, friendlier people, and more centrally located to other cities like Nashville, Indy, Cincinnati, and Atlanta, Carolinas.
Louisville is a great city, although small. But no problems finding things to do. I have enjoyed it a lot.

Not small at all compared to Albany NY!

1.3 million metro and 1.5 million CS...definitely medium large.

Here is a new promotion trying to bring people in:

A very underrated city

It's certainly not the stereotype you think of KY. Best plan? Come visit, and stay in an AIRBNB for week in an urban neighborhood. Come in the spring or summer, preferably for a festival. That's when the city shines the best. It is kind of drab in the winter. People literally hibernate all winter because its fairly mild, but cold to the southern natives here. So the city can appear "slow or dead" in cold months when it is a super jumping city. Especially compared with Indy and Cincinnati mentioned above. Nashville is awesome as all get out, but the traffic and prices make it not an option anymore IMO. For those prices, just live in a real big city like Dallas Atlanta, or Chicago.
