City Guide
Moving to Shively

When you're planning your next big move, there are a number of things that you should be sure to be on top of. First, when you're looking, it's important to check online listings and resources. However, often times you'll find that there are hidden gems within the city that aren't listed online. It can be very rewarding to take a look around town on foot before making your list of homes, since you might find something in the local newspaper or posted in a window that you didn't see online.

Also, do you have a pet? If it's important for you to take your buddy with you, you should make sure you're looking at pet friendly homes and apartments. There's a good chance that your new landlord won't like that extra tenant, so make sure you're clear with 'em.

The Neighborhoods of Shively

Shively has a couple of neighborhoods within its limits. In these, you'll most likely find something that fits, considering there are so many atmospheres to choose from.

Auburndale: This neighborhood is located on the foothills of the Iroquois South Overlook and includes a number of upscale homes. Apartments here include Watermark on Hurstbourne, The Enclave at Breckenridge and Champion Farms. These luxury apartments offer one to three bedroom units with spacious living areas, modern kitchens and all the other amenities you can think of.

Beechmont: This place lies just south of the University of Louisville and Churchill Downs. It is home to several places listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, including The Parkway, Oakdale and Southern Heights. Apartment rentals here include one bedroom one bath apartments, two bedroom apartments and five-bedroom homes for those in need of extra space (or those who like to entertain). Homes in Beechmont are varied from Victorian houses dating from the 1800s, to Colonial Revival, Bungalow, Cape Cod and ranch styles.

Wilder Park: Wilder Park's slogan is "We're central to everything!" The community is close to the Louisville Cardinals Stadium, the University of Louisville, the airport, the fairgrounds and Central Station Shopping Center. Apartments include Campus Edge Apartments, with studio and two bedroom apartments ranging in price and offering varied amenities. This is convenient to a number of shopping venues and restaurants. Champion Farms and Campus Edge Apartments are the best places to rent here. Campus Edge Apartments feature one- and two-bedroom units, and consequently is a popular choice for folks in need of less space.

Toonerville Trolley: The neighborhood of Toonerville Trolley took its name from a popular comic strip of the early 1900s by the same name, which was about the Strip Brook Street Line of trolleys. Today, it's the largest neighborhood association in the area, dedicated to preserving the architecture of the area, unifying residents and beautifying the area. This is a historical district, and rental homes rarely become available here.

Iroquois: There are occasionally homes for rent in Iroquois, but most renters here live in Iroquois Green Apartments. Most units here are one bedroom apartments.
