I know this is about the 100th post in the first 5 pages of this forum regarding advice on moving, but each person has different needs and I don't want to hijack someone's post. So I apologize in advance.

We are a family of 4 with a 4 yo and 2 yo looking to get out of South Bend, we just miss what mid-size Metro's have to offer. We really were looking for some advice on where to start looking in the Louisville metro area that can offer easy access to public transportation to different areas of the city, good school systems, and city neighborhood type feel. I have no real budget in mind at this point as it isn't a major issue, but I am a bit of a thrifty person so I like to keep my rent/mortgage payments low, while keeping my family in a safe area. I would also prefer my kids not grow up in a stark white, we are white, school system/neighborhood as I think being around different cultures helps kids grow up more open and less scared of the world.

We plan to visit some different cities in mid-April to get a feel, look for work for my wife, and look at housing. Thanks in advance for any advice you have to offer.

I think the Highlands or Clifton/Crescent Hill would fit you wonderfully. Please let me know if you have any questions. Louisville is LIGHT years ahead, bigger, and better than South Bend. I went to college in SB years ago....not much going on there. The bus service on Bardstown Rd and Frankfort Ave is pretty solid.
