I've lived in Louisville for four years and I love it. But I'm considering moving next year. That may seem crazy but I'm a 33 year old woman, single, and have a job in healthcare that allows me to move pretty much anywhere. I just want new experiences. I love Louisville but I can also love other places.

So I'm looking for city recommendations of cities similar to Louisville. And please don't say Cincinnati. I've lived in both and Louisville is so much better

What I'm looking for

- Dog friendly
- Beautiful parks
- Festivals and other free events
- Strong local food scene
- Good dating scene
- Relatively low crime

Thoughts?

Seriously? Nowhere. Maybe Richmond but Louisville is unique. I recommend travel over moving

Raleigh/Durham, much cleaner summer air, similar climate, the coast is much closer, tons of Healthcare employment opportunities too.

Raleigh events.

Durham events


And, IMO, the best farmers market this side of Eugene, OR.....another good choice.

RDU is sprawltastic with horrible traffic. Zero historical urban hoods like Highlands . Raleigh is technically the metro size of Louisville but it feels smaller because it is essentially a collection of 3 Lexington, KYs

Indianapolis is a possibility. When Louisville gets compared to another city, it's usually Indianapolis & Cincinnati.

Great job market, decent cost of living, plenty of park, a lot of nightlife, and there are some really nice areas.

Columbia, SC comes to mind. You will surely find good BBQ, and I know they have a decent amount of festivals. Proximity to Charlotte and Charleston are pros as well. Columbia has Congaree National Park nearby.

Cincinnati is a lot like Louisville but a little different culture but very similar in most ways.

If you love Louisville, I don't get why'd you would move? If you plan to come back it will only be more $$ there.

If you are an RN I'd recommend keeping a home base and traveling. I keep saying this but Louisville is just a very unique place. Ive live in several cities and spent at least a week in most cities .Richmond is the only place whixh mwets alot of Louisville ' checklists.
