I'm currently a Brooklynite, originally from Minneapolis. I'm curious if any of you Minneapolitans or Saint Paulites have moved to Louisville and like it.

I left Minneapolis mostly just because I'd lived there so long I wanted something new. I loved the green, the lakes and the arts. I almost though the city was too squeaky clean and white though.

I'm wondering how you would compare it to Louisville, if that's even possible.

Thank you

Red face MSP - Louisville?

Having lived in both towns, you'll miss the traffic congestion in Louisville. If you liked those stoplights on the freeway ramps, you'll miss those too.

There is green all over Louisville - despite the name bluegrass. It seems to rain more in Lousiville than the twin cities and you'll notice it's less windy - especially in the winter! The urban feel is going to be less than the downtown areas of St Paul and public trans is only buses in Louisville. Because of the reduced venues for the museums and shows, you can't be as selective as you could in the twin cities but there are good ones. There are also other nearby cities that you can go to for your NFL and baseball fix.

"The Cities" were it when it comes to large cities. Louisville has Cinnci and Indy as short drives for bigger city events (concerts, sporting events, etc). Even Nashville is a relative short drive (compared to MSP to Chicago). I don't want to oversell the traffic, but not having to plan events around rush hour is a big plus. I can't imagine how the commuters are handling without the I-35 bridge.
