As the largest city in Kentucky and America’s 16th largest city, Louisville is an instantly recognizable name and a colorful city with a rich history in southern charm. Its location is ideal, situated on the border of Kentucky and Indiana.
Louisville residents enjoy a stable economic base, low cost of living, quality education, nationally recognized healthcare, close-knit neighborhoods and wonderful, friendly people.
Those who make the move to Louisville are thrilled to discover a world of culture, history and recreational activities seemingly at their doorsteps. As the home to one of the most well known horse racing events, the Kentucky Derby, culture abounds in this Southern gem.
Louisville is also an art city. The Speed Art Museum, Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft and the new 21C Museum Hotel offer permanent and changing exhibits. Galleries abound with monthly “trolley hops” to showcase exhibits. Louisville is one of only a few cities in the United States with a professional full-time orchestra, opera, ballet, children’s theatre, dinner theatre and Broadway series.
Spectator sports include a Triple A baseball team at Louisville Slugger Field, an indoor football league and the college sports of the University of Louisville Cardinals and Bellarmine University Knights.
Great cities have great parks. Louisville’s nationally acclaimed parks system includes parks and parkways designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who also designed Central Park in New York City. A new system of parks is being planned and offers something for everyone — breathtaking scenic vistas, nature centers, sports leagues, historic homes, swimming pools, golf courses, community centers, campgrounds, conference centers and more.
