Is living in Louisville urban, hip and dog friendly? Is there much of a walking culture?

Downtown is more hit or miss, whereas Baxter Ave & Frankfort Ave is a home run.

Downtown can be pretty cool at times, and I would say it is an average downtown as far as housing options and restaurants and bars for a city this size. However, the retail downtown is lacking. Downtown is getting pretty nice though, and it is even getting active on many streets on weeknights. I was out walking main street tonite and there were a decent amount of people out walking around and going to theatre and restaurants, etc, whereas it has been pretty quiet lately with the cold.

What are you looking for?

The one thing I liked about living in the Highlands is that you could walk and take your dog anywhere you wanted. I took my dog into the Blockbuster and other stores on many occasions. If that is the kind of area you want, the Highlands is great. It just wasn't for me

Hmm, where else can you take your dog inside? I always get yelled at!

It has been a few years since I lived there but we took her into the hardware store, the Dairy mart and the book and music exchange. I saw dogs in the Beuler's when it was there.

Oh thats been awhile I think. I think Buehler's was here when I moved here? I cant remember. But I tried to take my girlfriends dog in Valumarket and they were very rude to me! The poor thing was just a baby! Ill have to try Blockbuster and Book and Music Exchange. I think Louisville is very dog friendly, especially in the Highlands, but we could make some more strides. For example, the dog park in Cherokee is nice, but I would like to see more of them.

The highlands is the only area I have ever lived that allowed dogs inside like that. You won't get there around here!
