Louisville Ranks Number 3 on Best Places to Retire in 2012

Louisville Ranked #3 in “25 Best Places to Retire”

We “Louisvillians” love our city, and we are reminded everyday that Louisville is a great place to live. But now, we aren’t the only ones recognizing what Louisville has to offer. Recently, CNN.com named Louisville its number three Best Place to Retire in 2012.

As residents of Louisville, we are well aware of things like the Kentucky Derby and Thunder Over Louisville. Such events the article lists are now things we may take for granted; but to a newly relocated family these are events they could only watch on TV.

The abundance of walking and biking trails, along with countless parks helps make Louisville a “friendlier” city.  Some of us like to say “It’s a big city with a small town feel”, meaning there’s countless of things to do but the sense of community is still strong. Louisville also provides a variety of performing art venues, such as the local Broadway shows and Louisville Ballet.

The CNN article states Louisville is an affordable city, with the median home price being $116,000.00 and the top sales tax of 6%.  If you or anyone you know is thinking of retiring in the Louisville area contact us if you have any questions! We love helping people learn about our great city!
