Living in Louisville

Louisville in Kentucky, USA is one of the 20 most populated cities in the country with around 750,000 residents. The city grew up around the Falls of the Ohio River, originally making its income from hauling boats overland to avoid the perils of the waterfall. Today it is famous as home to the Kentucky Derby and is known as “The Derby City”. Expatriates in Louisville who are horse racing fans can explore the history of the race at the Kentucky Derby Museum. For a deeper look into the past, the Louisville Mega Cavern presents an underground view of the city. Louisville is a prosperous city, too, and is home to three Fortune 500 companies. At the end of the 19th century, Louisville built a number of suburban parks and these still provide welcome green space today for a number of attractive residential districts. At InterNations, expats living in Louisville can learn more about the city, network with other members of our international expatriate community and make new friends with fellow expats living in Louisville or elsewhere.

Moving to Louisville

Louisville International Airport is just seven miles to the south of the downtown area and has a wealth of flight connections. It is also the worldwide hub for UPS and the center of a thriving logistics industry. In addition to that, the Ohio River is a major shipping route. Louisville was once a major rail hub but nowadays there is no national passenger service and only freight trains pass through the city. Three interstate highways cross the city, making it easily accessible for any expatriate moving to Louisville by road. Expats in Louisville will find a wide variety of housing available, from modern condos and apartments to townhouses in the Old Louisville neighborhood, a large historic preservation district. Expatriates moving to Louisville can call on the expertise of other expats in Louisville at InterNations to gain an insight into accommodation, education and other local issues.

Working in Louisville

Louisville based its early economy on shipping and transportation. Its position on the Ohio River and in the center of the US was of great benefit and its importance as a logistics center continues today. More recently, Louisville has also become a major location for medical sciences and healthcare and has a renowned research park that has attracted top scientists and researchers from around the world. Its economy is also home to the headquarters of sports equipment, food retail and finance sector companies. The forums and message boards of InterNations are a great way for expats living and working in Louisville to connect, learn from each other and uncover new opportunities. These features are complemented by our Expat Magazine, which includes many articles on how to best enjoy the expat life.
