Hi everyone!

My boyfriend and I will be traveling to Louisville for a weekend soon do a little sightseeing and to scope out the area as a possible place to move. From everything I have been reading on the forums I plan on checking out the Highlands. I have a couple questions I hope you can answer! First of all my boyfriend and I are in our early 30s and professionals. We enjoy live music, checking out local ethnic restaurants, bookstores, parks, farmers markets, etc. We like to go out but really aren't into the "party" scene.
-Does The Highlands seem to be a place we would "fit" in? Are their any other areas we should check out?
-Is the whole area pretty safe? Are there certain areas to avoid? What are the most desirable areas of the highlands?
-any recomendations on things to do/ places to see when we are in town?
-What is the job market like in Louisville for teachers?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

The Highlands would be the best place for you, with Frankfort Ave (Clifton/ Crescent Hill/ St Matthews) a close second. There aren't any unsafe residential areas any of the afore mentioned areas - most crime is people leaving bars at 2am getting robbed on occasion. I lived in Original Highlands for 1 year and didn't have any crime or noise problems at all.

join www.louisvillehotbyes.com (broken link) forum. not many cities this size have a foodie community on line like that. They offer fast and friendly advice for food, especially veggie, better than I can.

Search my older posts for MANY MANY things to do. I do believe my posts, along with censusdata's, provide the most unique ideas at urban attractions, restarants, and nightlife.

There is LOTS to do here. Louisville has almost every thing a really big city has (on a smaller scale of course) except pro sports and super upscale shopping like Neiman Marcus. It is still a crazy sports town, it is just UL and UK, and UL games are great social events. There is also some decently upscale shopping at many locally owned boutiques (ask if you have questions).

This is a very vague description that may be good for a newcomer:

Louisville travel guide - Wikitravel

(ignore the dining recs and go to louisvillehotbytes forum for those).

Finally, start exploring the Highlands and city at street level using google street view...its almost as good as being there and saves you gas !!!!

You have to go to Lynn's Paradise Cafe, it was featured on the Food Network. It is actually on Barret Ave which runs parrell to Bardstown Road. You can ask anyone and they can tell you where it is....you MUST have a burbonball Milkshake!
