What is it like living in Louisville?
Sitting along the Ohio River, which divides the northern and the southern U.S., Louisville is a modern metropolitan area steeped in tradition. Each neighborhood offers unique things to do and carries its own dialect. While Louisville certainly exudes the charm befitting a southern area’s reputation, the vibrant music and performing arts scene, desire for competitive innovation and farmers markets superseded fried chicken a long time ago.
The two-week Kentucky Derby Festival enhances the region’s appeal, attracting visitors from all over the world to gamble and drink mint juleps. Meanwhile, locally owned restaurants and coffee shops make Louisville a culinary destination, with restaurants serving bourbon, produce, meat and dairy products sporting the “Kentucky Proud” label identifying them as Kentucky-grown or Kentucky-made. And bumper stickers that unapologetically carry the “Keep Louisville Weird” slogan, show Louisville residents’ strong support of independent businesses.
