Are you wanting to stay in the suburbs or wanting to live in a small town like you do now?

I’m from KY so maybe I can help a little. Also, the number one complaint I hear from people moving to KY is the humidity. And you’re moving in June, make sure you get a place with AC!!!

I just moved to Louisville and live in the east end of town. Love it because I’m within 10 minutes of Target, 5 minutes from Kroger. Anything else I’d want is within 20 minutes or so. 

Metro Louisville is not super cheap, but if you look right outside of it the costs are much more reasonable. Like within 30 minutes-1 hour from downtown.

I live in Lexington and like it much, much better than Louisville.  I’d check out the school systems.  If I lived in Louisville, I would probably go private.  I think the Jefferson county public schools have a lot of issues and you end up having to get your kid into a magnet school.  I think Oldham County is a good area of you are looking to live in the Louisville area.  I believe it has very good schools and is a nice size (about 60,000)….

gpsp2B:  Lexington has 250,000 people.  We have 2 targets and a ton of Krogers, including 2 or 3 super Krogers in Lexington alone.  We also have at least 2 Meijers, 2 Ann Taylor Lofts, 3 Chicos, 2 White House/Black Markets, a Trader Joe’s, a Whole Foods, an Anthropologie….pretty much everything.  Lexington is home of the University of Kentucky as well as Transylvania, so the population is pretty educated.  It is also gorgeous and surrounded by horse farms.  It is less urban feeling than Louisville.
