Highlands Douglass Reviews
I live in what is referred to as "The Highlands" of Louisville. I absolutely love it here. There is such a diverse group of people; all different races, ages, and socioeconomic incomes. There are so many local shops, bars, and quite a variety of places to eat. There is also a park that is incredibly close that has a 2.5 mile paved loop as well as hiking and biking trails. Almost everything is within walking distance (even school!), which is very convenient. This city is also very involved with the compassionate healthcare movement as well as sustainability, both which I am becoming more involved in. I came to Louisville four years ago and can't imagine living anywhere else! I would recommend this city to anyone!
Employment here is average. I have my Bachelors of Science in Nursing and I was worried about finding a job after graduation because many of the hospitals are cutting back on their nursing staff and not hiring because with the new healthcare implementation, they have to cut back on their spending and nurses are their most expensive expense.
So many businesses here, especially on Bardstown Road!
