Moving to Louisville? That's a Great Idea!

Are you moving to Louisville? Whether you enjoy a hike in the woods or a night out on the town, Louisville has it all and more. Originally founded in 1778, Louisville has grown into one of the most historically and culturally-significant cities in both Kentucky and the country. Here are just a few reasons moving to Louisville is a great idea:

Parks: The city is home to an expansive park system created by Frederick Law Olmsted, the father of American landscape design. Residents can enjoy outdoor activities at Cherokee Park, Seneca Park, Iroquois Park and many more. Other major parks include The Parklands of Floyds Fork, Beckley Creek Park and E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park. Louisville Waterfront Park sits along the Ohio River offering residents walking paths, swings, playgrounds, year-round events and a beautiful view. You can also stroll across the Big Four Bridge that connects Louisville to Southern Indiana. Or visit Louisville Mega Caverns, a former limestone mine that has been converted into an underground park complete with tours, zip lining, and bike trails.

Food: Described by Southern Living Magazine as one of the “10 Best Food Cities in the South,” Louisville is a foodie’s dream with a wide variety of restaurant choices. Whether you’re looking for delicious southern comfort food or a fine dining experience, you can find it in Louisville! The city is also home to many Kentucky classics, such as the famous Hot Brown sandwich and Derby Pie.

Music: Are you a fan of local music scenes or large festivals? Then Louisville is the place for you! The city is home to many wonderful venues such as Spinelli’s, a pizza joint with a vibrant rock scene, as well as Louisville Waterfront Park, which hosts free concerts during the summer. Throughout the year, some of the biggest names in music roll through our town and play at the KFC Yum! Center. The city is also home to music festivals such as Bourbon...

Six Louisville Restaurants We Love

There are many reasons to love living in Louisville and a big one is the food. Whether you’re looking for a casual night out with friends or a fine dining experience, Louisville has you covered. The city is home to restaurants that serve everything from Southern comfort food to international cuisine, so there is something for everybody. Here are our picks for six of the best places to eat in Louisville:

Feast BBQ: With two locations (downtown and Jeffersontown), Feast BBQ is one of our favorite places for barbeque in the city. Order it by the pound or on one of their delicious sandwiches. We highly recommend their brisket or pulled pork sandwich. They also offer a wide selection of sides, including mac n’ cheese and creamy cole slaw. And every menu item pairs excellently with their signature Ale 8 bourbon slushy.

Jack Fry’s: If you’re looking for a fine dining experience in Louisville, look no further than Jack Fry’s. Live jazz music will entertain you as you’re enjoy the southern-inspired cuisine. Featured entrees include fried oysters, shrimp and grits, salmon and pork chops. Their diverse menu and classy atmosphere make it a premier fine dining experience in Louisville.

Impellizzeri’s Pizza: Impellizzeri’s is often credited with creating Louisville-style pizza (lots of cheese, a thick crust, and large slices) and has become a staple of the restaurant scene for more than 50 years. Known for its large slices, home-made meatballs and beer selection, Impellizzeri’s delicious food can be enjoyed at one of its numerous locations in the Louisville area.

Royal’s Hot Chicken: Although it originated in Nashville, nobody does “Hot Chicken" better than Royal’s. Enjoy mouthwatering classic fried chicken or kick it up a notch with their hottest “Gonzo” heat level. Whether you order Royal’s as a sandwich or tenders, you’ll be dining on...

6 Tips for Millennial Home Buyers

In 2019, millennials made up 37% of all home buyers in the United States and that number is looking to rise. As more and more millennials decide to settle down and start considering buying a home, it’s important to know the best way to go about it. Here are 6 important tips for this new generation of home buyers:

  1. Make Sure Your Finances Are in Order: Before you begin to look for a new home, be sure that it’s financially viable for you. Buying a home can be an expensive process, so you want to make sure you can afford it and still enjoy the lifestyle you want. Saving up money is important, especially saving for a down payment on a house, which can help show potential sellers that you are serious about purchasing.
  2. Choose the Right Realtor: Buying a house can be a daunting process, so you want to make sure you have someone in your corner. Finding a realtor that knows what you want and is easy to communicate with will make the search for your first home so much easier. The right realtor will help you find the home that’s perfect for you.
  3. Find a House You Can Afford: When house hunting, it’s imperative to stay within your means. It may be tempting to go outside of your budget when shopping for a home, but staying within that budget will keep you out of debt and help you save money. Those savings can be applied to any unforeseen costs or used to furnish or improve your home.
  4. Think About the Long Term: It’s important to think about your future, especially when buying a home. During the search for your new home, keep in mind your plans for the next couple of years and find a house with room to grow, especially if you’re planning on having a family. Finding a house with extra rooms for children or space for a home office can help you prepare for your future.
  5. Attend Open Houses: Before you buy a home, see what it looks like in person and learn as much as you can about...
