I really love living down here! It is such an accepting environment with such diversity! Not much for night life of a few local shops and schools that are pretty good, and if you want to go anywhere it is about a fifteen minute drive all over Louisville.

Easy access to just about everything I need - grocery stores, car washes, mechanics, and whatnot. But some of the apartment complexes could really stand to have a health/safety inspection. The public school did not agree with my child, but we've got her settled in at an alternative now.
It's a nice area. I have had no problems with the area.
