If you don't want violence then keep them out of the JCPS system. Live in Shelby, Oldham or Bullitt if you are going the public system route or plan on private schooling if you are going to live in Jefferson County.

I'm impressed with all the great advice people have been giving on here. Do you guys have any advice for me, maybe?

My husband and I are currently looking for jobs and an apartment in the area, but we're pretty unfamiliar with the different neighborhoods. We're looking for:
-Probably rents on the cheaper side, but since we come from the Boston area, everything out here looks really inexpensive by comparison! I'd like to stay under $900 a month, since we don't yet know what our jobs will pay.
-We don't have any kids, so no worries about schools.
-We can do a studio apartment, but it would be nice to have extra bedrooms in case family comes to visit
-We love the river, and if at all possible, we'd love to have a view of it from the apartment (a tall order, I'm sure!)
-We'd like probably an urban neighborhood, where we can walk to a lot of things and leave the car at home
-We want somewhere with a lot of local businesses nearby (ideally including a yarn/craft shop, a bookstore, and a comic/gaming shop)
-We'd love to live in an area where a lot of people walk around - we've heard that around Bardstown St is great for that.

Thanks so much!

I'm strongly thinking about moving to Louisville with my 2 kids and start new but I've done any moving out of state by myself before so I'm kinda scared. Where is the great schools and affordable living? I wanna keep my children safe from high violence areas? Any suggestions?

Just understand the farther from the "war zones" that you live, the higher the costs in rent and commute costs and time.

That being said, I feel it is wrong to assume that Louisville is in anyway unsafe. Your odds of an automobile accident and any resulting injuries or death are far greater than the living risks of most anywhere in the area.

Hello everyone,

I am also looking to relocate from Wisconsin to Louisville. Can someone please provide names of hospitals or medical facilities in the county or neighboring counties of Louisville. I am currently a medical secretary but will soon have a degree in health and wellness and would like to submit resumes.

Thank you.

The largest health systems in Louisville metro area are:

Jewish (now KentuckyOne Health)
University (based downtown)
Norton (the largest)
and Baptist

These entities control virtually every hospital and health care facility in the Louisville metro area (including surrounding counties).

As far as Louisville's suburban counties, I have heard good things about Jewish Medical Center South in Bullit County and also Baptist Northeast in Oldham County. Keep in mind Louisville's southern indiana counties have nice medical centers too. These centers are much closer to downtown Louisville.
