Louisville is the destination to be if you want to expand your horizons in a down home sort of place. Plus, a new apartment can go only $575 ( for a 2 bedroom no less!). While you are sipping on mint juleps and amping up for the Kentucky Derby, Louisville offers plenty of places for young creatives to hang out like the atrium gallery at Louisville’s 21C, actors can flex their muscles at the Actors Theatre of Louisville, the Lousville Slugger Museum offers inspiration for the sports writer, who can pretty much bank on constantly having something to writer about in the action-oriented town.
