Hey guys! I'm currently a senior at Auburn University (graduating this May) and have considered moving to either Louisville or Lexington because I have heard nothing but great things about both areas and would love to start my 'adult' life in a new place. What can you tell me about the type of things there are to do here (for a young woman in her 20's). Also, I have seen some things about areas of the city not being safe-- in which areas would you recommend I look for an apartment? I would like more upscale living, if that makes a difference. How about the surrounding suburbs and such? I would eventually like to buy a house and start a family, do you think the average home prices are too high, too low, fair? What about Elizabethtown? I know it's an hour or so commute, do you think it would be worth it? Thanks in advance!

I'm a prospective Kentuckian myself who had the opportunity to visit Elizabethtown and Louisville about 3 wks ago, this was my report.

And i'm sure the real residents (stx12499, tomocox, censusdata, etc.) can chime in.

I think there is a lot more being offered to young people in Louisville, maybe just because of the size difference. Lexington is sports crazy with the University of Kentucky. Louisville is sports crazy as well, but has a far superior arts and restaurants scene. I get the feeling that if you are not a student at UK, then you'll be a little left out in Lexington, whereas there is a lot more going on in Louisville even if you are not a student at UL.

I can only echo Off Topic's thoughts. I'm 31 and several of my friends went to college at UofK, but they came back to Louisville to live. If they city was REALLY that great, I think they would have stayed in Lexington.
