I live in Kentucky and I'd say Louisville is pretty dangerous


HomeSnacks User

It is a scary place with barely any jobs and its just a lot of farming.

It is very poor and no jobs at all.

Louisville is a bustling city with many food and entertain attractions to visit. The food scene is very diverse, wonderful parks to go and walk around, and overall a very nice city to be in.

My favorite place in Louisville is Water Front Park by the Ohio River, where they have the walking bridge where you can walk across the river to the Indiana side. It is very beautiful at night and safety is always first for the city.

There are many things to do in Louisville! We have a revitalized waterfront that continues to grow stronger and offer more activities for the public each year. From free waterfront concerts each Wednesday in the summer to a wide array of delicious eateries, you're sure to find something you enjoy.

For such a "small" city, Louisville has a variety of art and music and food. Louisville has pretty decent cost of living, and has quite a bit of history to it, being a river city. If you can put up with the occasional ignorant redneck, you might just love it here.

The crime rates are horrible. In some areas there are shootings nearly every week if not more often. Some of the schools are good, and some are awful depending where you are, none of them are excellent though. Easy to travel though and a lot of jobs.

My favorite places to visit are the clubs and resturants in the area. I would avoid downtown as much as possible though, lot of traffic and a lot of not so great people there.

The other comment is just untrue and dramatic. Jobs are out there, they just might not be the most luxurious. Finding a job is quite easy if you lower your standards. Lived here for a year and never had anything happen to me or feel like I was in danger.

A lot of the city looks poor and outdated besides the s****y east end.
