Hi,

We are making a trip from the Kansas City area. We've never been to Louisville, but are considering relocating there for my husband to open up a chiropractic office. We would like to check out the overall area and have some fun too. We have too young elementary/preschool age boys. Any ideas? I would like to get an idea of what neighborhoods are like too in good school areas - 300-350K range. I'd like to drive through some if you have some suggestions!

Thanks!

I would get off them interstates, but use them as corridor markers. I live in and recommend Oldham County for several reasons. Oldham County is a great place to live and to raise children. Safe, great schools, wonderful people all around. Oldham County is off I-71.

Northeastern Jefferson County, especially in the Prospect (40059) zip is my second choice, then I might look at the St. Matthews/Cresent Hill/Bowman Field area of the Highlands. There are several other pockets worthy of your stop and look at, too.

Be very careful of the Jefferson County Schools. They have a terrible school assignment policy which might force your children into second rate schools in the name of "balance."

I agree with tomocox that OC is a nice area. I am a south end boy who grew up in the projects north of Iroquois Park. I now live just south of the park and it is a beautiful, affordable area and a stones throw from downtown.There is a new development off Old Manslick road and one a few years into development also, worth driving thru.
