Local Reviews

It's near my family it's close to the grocery store it's close to convenient storess and restaurant I like going to movies and out to eat with family and friends

Like most of people in neighborhood. Have a park close by. Kroger store close by. I like going to church with my friends.

Cost of living and proximity to downtown. Easy access to interstate & direct access to downtown. Small business that are different than what you find in other parts of the city. Art spaces

Really don't like living here don't go anywhere to. Scared.cant go out without something bad happening

The most unique thing about my neighborhood is that I live in a house across from apartments that are also apart of the neighborhood. My favorite restaurant is Wendy's because their food is very good and affordable. Also, I like to walk with my friends to go downtown to do some shopping and hang out.

There are lots of eateries. Scenic areas, including dog parks, a cat Cafe, and a dog Cafe. I love all the restaurants as well.

Overview of Louisville

Louisville, located along the roaring Ohio River and home of the world-famous Kentucky Derby horse Race and Kentucky Fried Chicken, is home to many exciting attractions drawing tourists and apartment renters alike.

Known as Bourbon Country, residents living here will also want to visit the Urban Bourbon Trail which is centered in downtown Louisville and features establishments that once served superstars along the line of Al Capone and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Art and theatre aficionados will find plenty to do here and want to visit the Kentucky Center, which features a variety of plays and concerts, as well as the Speed Art Museum, which features a robust permanent collection as well as rotating temporary exhibitions.

The Muhammad Ali Center is also a special attraction based in the city and features an interactive museum, educational programming, and special events.
