Hi,

Has anyone lived in both these places and could compare the two? I am really interested in finding a place with lots of artists, independent coffee shops, poetry readings, etc. I am in Raleigh now, and here everything seems very spread out, while I hear that Louisville has areas like Old Louisville and the Highlands.

Which city do you think has more of that indie/ bohemian/ hipster vibe?

Thanks!

Louisville hands down. No contest. It is and has always been a much denser, centralized city. That is because it has historically been much larger than Raleigh which is more a collection of small to midsized towns which make up a large metro area. However, R/D has more growth, education, and jobs. I still think Louisville is much hipper and cooler though. This is based on several visits and a week stay in R/D, not long term residency. I lived in Louisville 4 years and only left for a job.
