Hi! Let me start off saying I have little knowledge of Louisville. I hear it is getting pretty popular though! I am 29 and live with my boyfriend. We have been thinking about moving but not really sure where we want to go! (we are also looking at Dayton, Cincy, and Columbus) Right now we live outside of Cincinnati in the burbs. It's chain heaven! Everything and everyone is the same. We are looking for a community with nice older homes, mature trees, with a relaxed atmosphere, lots of locally owned shopping and dinning. I would love to be able to walk (safely) to the local bar or coffee shop to hang out. Are there areas of town that would match what we are looking for? We don't have kids so good schools aren't a priority but would be nice. If anyone has any ideas for me I would love to hear them!

Thanks!

You sound like a Highlands girl to me. That area has plenty of what you are looking for.

Yes...Highlands, Clifton, or Crescent Hill. PM me for details. Walkable, historic, upscale, eclectic, and unique shopping and alternative to upscale dining.

That is sort of a vague question....how many bedrooms? how updated? how many amenities? it can run from 500 to more than 1200 for luxury apartments. For example, a very nicely renovated 4 bedroom is 1350 on craigslist:

Perfect for Couple/Family-Heart of the Highlands (broken link)

In general, if you want an apartment with any amount of new appliances or updates in general in th Highlands, expect to pay 650 for a one bedroom, 750-800 for a two bedroom and more than 1000 for 3-4 bedrooms.

Anything offered at less than 575 probably has some serious drawbacks like a 1960s era kitchen and not the freshest paint job or carpet. Seriously, just keep searching craigslist and then mapquest the address. Generally, the areas around Cherokee Park are the nicest and priciest. My favorites are the highrises on Willow Avenue.
