I just graduated college and got a job working in downtown Louisville. I am looking for a place to live and want advice on a great place/area to live and possibly areas to avoid. I would like to live near people my own age and have a close drive into work. Any suggestions??

Thanks for your help!!

If you want, send me a private message describing yourself and your interests more, and I may be able to better help you. Different "personalities" like different areas.

It really does depend on what types of things you like to do, what would you like close by? If you like diverse shopping, parks, and older buildings I would suggest the highlands or somewhere in the area of Frankfort avenue. If you like a small town feel but still a close drive to downtown you might want to check out Prospect or the Brownsboro road area. East end of Louisville will keep you out of the crowded city and give you more upscale shopping. You might check out the Shelbyville Road / Hurstbourne Lane area as well.

Dee if you like an area full of younger people than the Highlands is probably for you but again it all depends on the kind of things you like to do.

If I was young, I'd actually consider living downtown. Fourth Street Live is very cool, and she'd have no commute. The Cherokee Park area is very nice. Bardstown Road is also very hip, if they still use that expression, and probably more affordable.

Ah, to be young!
