Well, I've read the bashes and the supports, but having lived here for all of my life, yes I confess I am a born native of this area so I've probably more experience with it than a lot. I've lived in most parts of the town at one time or another. Here's what I've observed. 1. where to live in the "Ville" has something to do with your tastes. If you're a little laid back country plant your bucket a bit south of Okolona, a little blue collar unpretentious, definitely Fairdale, Bohemian eclectic-the bardstown road highlands. Upwardly mobile go getters, well try the east end. Really into history, government business or education, Old louisville. We have a little bit of everything. Actors Theatre is well known in New York. We have one of the four best culinary programs, and sorry, but U of L is my college, I went back for another degree just last year, So we do have lots to offer.

But Louisville is one of those love it or hate it towns, and you have to really understand something before you can like or not like. There are things to do, and people to do them with, but with everything you have to really understand something before you can like or dislike it.

I have found Kentucky's people some of the most welcoming around, and what's wrong with a little bit of country common sense, and incase any of you ask, I'm an anthropology major in college. Life is what you make of it, and the funny thing is that this is a big country, so if the "Ville" isn't your cup of tea, or shot of Bourbon, then maybe you need to consider other options.

The point is: "It takes very little effort to stand around and bash something, the real heroes are those who stand and deliver, and make things better.

Default why or why not to move to louisville

why to move to louisville, simply because it fits your lifestyle, and we have a lot of diferences. Check it out see if it fits, the lifestyle is not for everyone, but there is a certain amount of diversity and it works. You do have a lot of the amenities of larger cities with a hometown comfortable feel, and that makes us a little different than cities that aren't like us. There are some things you can't do in Louisville, but there are a lot of things you can do here that you can't elsewhere. I like being able to have a quiet conversation with someone without them freaking out that you said Hi! You can usually talk to people in this city without them acting like you just jumped off the last saucer from Mars or something.

Geez, people are too into soundbytes, and some things can go drastically wrong if you don't take the time to communicate. Louiville's a country type of town, for the most part, and that's why I like it. I don't like to worry so much about what I'm wearing that I can't enjoy the people I'm with. LOL
