Hello, first I want to thank you for taking the time to read and hopefully respond to this. I've been offered a job in Louisville, and after spending this past weekend there I've decided to take it. I currently live in Michigan, and have lived in Kansas City, as well as Florida. Traveling through Kentucky in the past has always made me want to spend more time there, so this is the perfect chance.

I'm working for a sub-contractor to Ford and will initially be spending my time at LAP, and later will be dividing my time between that and KTP.

My girlfriend, dog and cat will be coming. She loves the area as well and is looking forward to the move. We would like to rent at first for two reasons: My job may only last less than 2-3 years in this area, and we want to get a feel for the area before buying. We would like to spend between 700-1000 per month for rent.

Commute wise I would like to be within 30 minutes of both LAP and KTP.

The small town feeling is important. But I would also like to be fairly close to shopping, restaurants, etc. We also love going to baseball games so being within half an hour of downtown is important. We noticed a lot of apartments on our visit, but with a vocal 40lb dog that loves to be outside and run an apartment just will not work.

We plan on two more trips between now and December also.

Any input on areas to live in, websites to look at, or anything at all is greatly appreciated.
