I have accepted a job in Louisville (right near Waterson Pkwy and Poplar Level intersection) and I really would like some suggestions for nice, but fun areas to live in. I'm 22 and I do like to go out on the weekends and meet people. I am looking to buy a condo, townhouse, or something on a similar level. Does anyone have any suggestions or descriptions for where I might start looking?

Depending on your purchasing ability, being that you work near the Watterson, your choices are wide open. I would rent for 6 months if I were you. Get to know what part of town you like best, and then go for the purchase. You can live in a shoebox sized apt for 6 months. Eastern Germantown/South-southwestern Highlands would be my first inclination.

The highlands sound perfect for you. There are condos and townhouses all around the area, and are perfect for the younger crowd. I have been wanting to move there, and probably will when my lease is up. there are lots of clubs and restaurants all over Bardstown road, Cherokee park and it's a wonderful, nice, calm atmosphere. There are always people walking around and its a great environment, and its close to where you will be working. if you need anymore information, i have a lot of information a/b relocation or properties available in the area. email me sometime at alyssonriffe@gmail.com - i hope you enjoy Louisville!

Pamela, if you search my posts you will find descriptions of the best areas for young professionals to live. My personal favorite is the Highlands, around 40204 and 40205 zips. It is a historic area wth many condo infills, rehabs, and apartments along with higher end mansions on an Olmstead designed park. The neighborhood's retail and restaurant corridor, Bardstown Rd, is among the most vibrant in the city. Every type of bar, restaurant, shop, or boutique can be found along here, plus many stores unique to the city. Many single females enjoy the St Matthews area, which has a bit higher median income and is closer to suburban amenities like malls while still having a pedestrian friendly, urban flare at its northern terminus. As far as buying a condo, the fastest growth and most upcoming area is downtown, where I live. Many people are still up in the air on downtown, but in 5 years you won't recognize the place. Here is a good blog which chronicles some major developments, especially downtown:

The Urban Louisvillian

Please PM me with any questions. I relocated here when I was about your age so I know what it is like, and I think I may be able to help you.
