My husband and I are considering relocating to either Louisville or Lexington, so we're coming down to check both out in a few weeks. We only have one day to spend in each city (we're crunched for time). We plan to drive around and check out different neighborhoods. What are some things that you would recommend seeing/doing, or places to eat at? We're looking for things that locals enjoy as opposed to more touristy things. We're both in our late 20s and love all kinds of outdoor activities, but also love shopping and eating! Thanks!!

Check out the Highlands and St. Matthews. The main roads that run through these areas are Bardstown Rd. and Baxter Ave. (Highlands), Shelbyville Rd., (St. Matthews), which turns into Lexington Rd. and Frankfort Ave. I like Brendan's in St. Matthews and pretty much any restaurant on Bardstown Rd. in the Highlands will be locally owned. Some of my favorite places there are Lynn's Paradise Cafe (I highly recommend you go there, I guarantee you've never been anywhere like it before), Seviche, and Bristol Bar and Grill. There are tons of locally owned shops along Bardstown Rd. too, like Ear-X-Tacy which has a lot of local band's CDs for sale as well as popular music, and Why Louisville which has a lot of fun Louisville shirts and trinkets. What are you all into?

One of the advantages to the Highlands and St Matthews area is the proximity to Cherokee and Seneca Parks. These interconnected parks have two golf courses, but are also quite popular for cyclists, walkers, and runners. There is or was a bike path that ran along Lexington Road into the city, for longer distance rides (others might be able to give advice on that).

The Highlands neighborhoods of Deer Park, Bonnycastle, and Cherokee Triangle are probably the best for giving good access to both the aforementioned strip of shops and restaurants (on Bardstown Road) and Cherokee Park.
