Just wondering any takes on that? Is it an energetic, friendly place for meeting new people, as a 20-something?

Thanks!

No there is. I think it is a good scene for a mid sized city. The advantages it has over the other cities you are considering is less traffic and crime, and you can really utilize and explore the entire metro area (oh and it is TONS cheaper). As a disadvantage, it is about half the size of a Twin Cities with less than half the college/professionally educated people.

That said, Louisville, is an artistic, culinary, hidden gem. Come try it out and I think you may like it. Super uunderrated there!

as a twenty something i'll think you'll do fine, depending on what you're into. once you hit thirty i've heard that this place is a dating desert.

I love the artsy, music, and craft beer scenes. Plus I like to volunteer, attend church regularly and have enjoyed league bocce in the past (random I know). So I do have offbeat and sort of eclectic interests. I have a few years left in my 20s buuuut that's sort of scary that dating options are so low after 30? Ha, but that's not hugely uncommon in a lot of areas.

we have a large population of eclectic, artsy urban hipsters. our craft beer scene is quite respectable. while we only have three or four local micros, we have great availability from everywhere else. I would say you should look into living in the highlands. lots of people with your interests and in your age group there. if you wanna know more about that area, just search highlands. i'm shure you'll find many post with me slobbering all over how great a neighborhood it is.

our music scene has always been really solid. i'm a musician and having lived and traveled a lot, loyuisville really has a lot of talent per capita.

our food scene has been voted top five in the nation. seriously. it's pretty damn great for a city this size.

louisville has a lot to offer for not a lot of money(cost of living). the weather kinda sucks, allergies are horrible ( we've been in the top three worst citys for allergies), and outside of the central core, it can get pretty white trash redneck here. all in all i think you'll like it.

Fair assessment. I believe there are 7 craft brweries in the metro area and about 4 more opening soon. More to come soon. I would recommend stopping in the Louisville Beer Store, KY Homebrew, or Sergio's World beers to get updates on the local craft brew scene and the newcomers on their way. Seriously just stop in Sergio's and that guy will tell you more than you ever wanted to know about beer. I absolutely adore Cumberland Brews, Bank Street Brewhouse, and Against the Grain Breweries.
