Hello everyone. Long time lurker here. I was just offered a job in Louisville and now I need to plan a move. I will be heading down next month to look for places to live. I would like to have a list of places to look at when I do, so in the interest of that I would ask about good towns to live in.

I saw the post about making it easier for members to help so here is some info.

-I will work right off the N. Hurstbourne Pkwy around the Isaac Shelby Campus UoL.
-The most I would like to pay for rent is $900. I would like to get a little cheaper though.
-I would like to keep the commute to no more then 40min. 20 is ideal. I could go longer I guess for the right place.
-I have no children
-I would like a rural/suburb feel. I live in NYC currently and have had enough of that crap.
-Normal amenities. I need nothing special.
-Pie.

If you need any more info, let me know. Thanks for reading.

You might look in MT Washington,Middletown, Jeffersontown, are the better areas in or around the city. There are others also those come to my mind first. Of course you got the Highlands area and parts of the southwest Jefferson county is good also.

Compared to NYC, most of Louisville will feel "rural/suburban" with the exception of areas inside the I-264 beltway.

Given your needs, I would lean towards Prospect, Goshen, or Crestwood.

Unlike NYC, Louisville gobbled up (annexed and merged) with most of the suburbs in its county. So don't shy away from a property with a Louisville address; if the property is newer, chances are it could be on the edge of development, in a nice and quiet area.

Another quaint town, within about a 25 min drive to the Shelby Campus of UofL is La Grange. They are building a nice apartment complex there that may suit you, and "downtown" La Grange is quite cute :

Also, like I said, do not totally write off the city areas. For example, this complex is just 10 mins from dt and feels so quiet and "remote," next to a world class park and close to such wonderfully quaint, walkable urban areas.

Issac Shelby Campus is about 1 mile from me. Even high end apartments in East Louisville wouldn't run you past $900 a month unless it's a 3 bedroom. There are a few cheaper pockets along parts of LaGrange Rd and the Murphy Ln area of Westport Rd where 2 bedrooms are 600 to 700. Crestwood has a similar price range and type of apartments (though fewer of them) and it has a very rural feel but is just a couple miles outside I-265.
