I am being relocated from DC to Ft Knox for work and have no idea where to live. I currently live in a condo inside the Beltway where I can walk to the grocery store, restaurants and bars. We also have a 40 mile multi-use trail and dog park out our back door .

My husband and I are in our mid 30's no kids but have two dogs.
We will be driving to Ft Knox everyday...willing to make the commute so we are not living in the middle of nowhere.
My husband runs marathons and I cycle.
Budget under $1300 per month for rent.
Need to make sure the pups have somewhere to go potty

Please help because we come out in two weeks and I have no idea where to begin.

Thanks!!!

As a BRACcie who arrives in May I'll give my input,

If you want something like your inner-beltway condo I would suggest the Highlands or Downtown. But be warned both of those areas will encompass an hour commute to Knox. But that hour is mileage rather than traffic. Good news is that $1300 goes far in Kentucky and Louisville.

The Norton Commons may be a good place for you. The commute from the East End to Fort Knox is not an easy one though. Audubon Park is also a family friendly area with quick access to the expressway. The rent is cheaper the closer your get to Ft. Knox in Louisville, for the most part.

Highlands, without question. 40204 and 40205. you may also like neighborhoods in 40206 and 40207. Old Louisville and downtown are also options, as they are emerging, but are more like a more low key neighborhood in DC. The Highlands really is big city urban and vibrant IMO, though.

Thanks for all of your help!!! I am leaning toward the Highlands but my dogs are seeming to be a problem. Most places I am finding are not doggie friendly =( We come out on the 27th for a week so I am hoping we will find some then.

We looked at Norton Commons and really liked that area but the commute was going to be about an hour. So as of now that is our back-up plan. Thanks for the suggestion! It's nice to know we are looking at the right places =)

My family is with HRC. We plan to arrive in May. I'm not really sad with having to leave DC.

We just relocated from NC to KY.... My husband probably works with you guys somewhere in the Alexandria Building. Of course he isn't Government, he is an IBM Contractor.
I suggest you get a Realtor, specially since they know the area and could possibly help you find what your looking for. I am not sure why anyone would wanna live in Louisville, But Good luck!
