Hello all. i'll be moving to the Louisville area in the next few months for work. i'll be working in carrollton, but wanted to be closer to either cinci or Louisville. when i visited the areas a few weeks ago, i decided that Louisville was the better option.

i'm looking at northeast suburbs. as a single guy i would like to be close enough to the city that i can take advantage of the various activities, but i also need to keep in mind that i'll have to drive to carrollton every day.

is the prospect area close enough to be in touch with the city life? any other suggestions that will keep me within about 45 minutes of carrollton, but still provide the city atmosphere close at hand?

thank you

First of all, you'll be 45 minutes to Carrollton from even St. Matthews/Zorn Ave area. Carrollton is Exit 45 on I-71 with Milepost 0 being just east of I-65 Bridge in downtown Louisville.

Secondly, yes Prospect works for you; however, based on your criteria, I would have to seriously look at the northern portion of Crescent Hill (look at Zorn Ave/Frankfort Ave/ Hillcrest Ave area's)

Depends on what you mean by 'city life'. If you mean suburbia, then any of the NE suburbs along Westport Rd etc will do. If you mean big city fun, then Crescent Hill/ Clifton area is more up your alley. It is just off Exit 2 on I-71 (Zorn Ave).

You'll probably average 60+ mph since you will be going against the main flow of rush hour traffic.

can either of you give me a zip code for the crescent hill area? searching for houses is a difficult task when i'm not familiar with the neighborhood names.

thanks for your feedback.

Spence425,
I think you are wise in choosing Louisville as your future destination..it is a great "little big city" and will provide a smooth commute to Carrollton. If you intend on purchasing a home I highly recommend contacting a local Realtor who can assist in your relocation and who can assist in making your transition much smoother. A buyer's agent can answer questions, assist in your home search, schedual showings, and work beside you from start to close at no cost to you since all commissions are paid by the seller. I could not agree more with the other bloggers in stating that the clifton/crescent hill area sounds as though it will meet your search criteria. Best of luck in your move and please don't hesistate to let me know if I can be of assistance or answer any questions. Best Wishes!
