I am planning on going thru louisville, probably getting there Sunday or Monday. I have been there before but, I got so confused with the roads. Now, if I want to look at some of these places like highlands, or sheperdsville, or germantown, or any of these outlying places how do I know I am in them, they don't have signs do they? I couldn't tell where I was at when I was there, seemed like all louisville to me......lol. I don't know divisions of street names either so how do I know if I am in these places? Sorry kind of sounds like a dumb question, ha? I don't want to spend the whole day looking for a place and getting lost again. I get lost easily. I don't have a map of louisville but I am thinking I can run some of these places off on my printer and get an idea of where I should be.....!!! Thanks guys you have been such a help to me!

I just finished using Google Maps and if you have that site you can type in for instance:

Louisville,Ky.-Saint Matthews and it will take you to that area and you could use Street View or just study the Satellite view of the area and write down landmark boundaries(Streets,Roads,Buildings) to help you identify with the particular area of town that you are in and other surrounding areas. If you know the address just type that in along with Loiuisville,ky. and it will bring you right to the place.

agreed google is your best bet here. Also, google maps often list neighborhood names at certain zoom levels. Places like Highlands and germantown show up as named places on google maps. If not, google it on your own. for example, type in the neighborhhod name and Louisville. go to google.com and type in "Louisville" "Crescent Hill" then click on maps. Write down some of the street names in the area and explore. better yet, when you are on the map view, click on "street view" in the upper right corner and you can do a virtual drive thru the city with live pics of every home and street in the city from 2007!
