Hi, my boyfriend and I are looking to move from Galena, IL to the Louisville area and have a few questions. First of all is there an arts district there, or in general a hip area with more indie stores and small local businesses?

Secondly, can anyone recommend a smaller, safe town outside the city where we may be able to rent an apartment? We're hoping to be 30 minutes from downtown at the most, and we'd love a 2-3 bedroom place preferably a place with some character. We're looking to spend in the 400-600 range on rent. The main concern is that it's in a nice safe area.

Any help would be appreciated!

Unless your yearning for the quiet of country and big fuel bills, I'd suggest living in the Highlands or Crescent Hill where every property has character and there exists miles of road frontage with small indie shops, pubs, and galleries! Look in zip codes 40204,40205,40206 and you'll find places for 600 a month. Happy Hunting!

Never heard of Galena, Il, and without mapquesting it, I assume it is very rural. Either way, Louisvile is not a big bad city. You can live in the hip indie districts and still be very very safe. I really suggest you look strongly at the Baxter and Bardstown corridor. Louisville has several indie and art districts but this is the premiere one. It is called the Highlands.

Bacially anything along I-64 btw I-264 and I-65 is in the indie/ artsy category.

South of I-64 is a large area known as "The Highlands", which is a collection of many neighborhoods with a total population of over 35,000. North of I-64 is the Frankfort Ave corridor made up of the Clifton and Crescent Hill neighborhoods and the city of St Matthews. In the past couple of years the Butchertown area (along Mellwood Ave btw Baxter & Frankfort Aves) has added a ton of antique stores and a few restaurants.
