I am interested in learning more about the Louisville area as I am a retired guy looking to relocate from the Chicago suburbs. Planning on renting, at least initially, to learn the area, but need to understand more about the area. How accepting of newcomers, especially retired persons, how is the healthcare (cancer in particular), opportunities to connect with other, like-minded people, crime, etc. Any thoughts or insights are truly appreciated. Thank you!

Louisville is a great place for retirement and seeing a lot of Chicagoans (myself included). It gives you a taste of a city with great arts, culture, and restaurants. There are several large hospital systems and a very well regarded teaching hospital. 95% of all major medical treatment stays local, very few things get shipped out.

Louisville's urban neighborhoods feel almost somewhat like Chicago suburbs in parts and they are very safe like the Highlands. It is more walkable and easier to meet people there. Another popular but more expensive area is Norton Commons. It's more suburban but built like a little old town while only being 15 miles to downtown.

Louisville is a very welcoming city to all.
