I think it is always best to take a few days or a week and go visit the city you are thinking about moving to.
Talk to the locals, go out in the evening and see what the night life is like if you like that sort of thing.
Do the tourist stuff then go find the less beaten path and poke around.
Try the restaurants, go to the horse races, wander the downtown and shopping areas.
Look for and ask about the little speciality shops and cafes.

There is so much to see and do there but you have to be comfortable enough to ask about these things and talk to people

I think Louisville is every bit as "weird" as the city that is usually thought of as the lib/hippy capitol of the east, Asheville, NC. We considered/visited/looked at realty in Asheville before moving to L'ville, and Im so glad we took a chance on the 'Ville. We got this move right
I always say this to the point of redundancy, but it bears repeating again . . .I always encourage the "Wrong Turn--Scary Hillbillie" stereotype because Im so scared of this little utopia being ruined Jersey or Florida style when the secret gets out.

Thunder, I think a lot of locals are like that in Louisville. It is like they want a few people like you, but not "too many." And they certainly do not want the Jerseyfication of endless strip malls and tract housing. Certainly some of the growth I see in places like Shelby County (tons of new outlet malls) is worrisome for that.
