Default Man...Louisville has some gorgeous neighborhoods

I left my office on Hurstbourne to go downtown yesterday, and decided to take the scenic route and skip the interstate. Drove up Shelbyville rd., to Lexington, to Bardstown, into downtown. On the way back I purposely got lost and ended up in the Cherokee park area.

For those stuck on the idea of the burbs or outlying areas, give a strong second look to the more urban neighborhoods. I've lived in several places, and what I saw driving yesterday was just as nice as ANY neighborhoods I've seen, anywhere. Everything is green, the flowers are blooming, lots of families and activity...just a great area.

I really really want to move out of Bardstown (the city, not the road). This town is a pit. 2 blocks of "cute" stuff in the little downtown, and then nothing. No wonder I spend all of my time in the "city"! (we live here because of my wife's work)

We have been trying to tell people! The city of Louisville is not the big bad city that many people expect when they relocate. There are wonderful urban neighborhoods with extreme beauty and families everywhere.

I totally agree. Louisville is not a bad place, especially if you can afford the spots you talked about. 95% of my problem with Louisville has to do with education.

Yes, Louisville is pretty, but of course most beauty comes with a price.

Still, there are many affordable pretty neighborhoods. I was duly impressed and my soul fed from how gorgeous Louisville is. I especially liked Iroquois Park.
