Ride Around Germantown
Germantown was one of Louisville's early neighborhoods. People came here to build homes as early as the 1870s. Germantown was part of one of the first neighborhood associations in the city, too. There is still a lot of historic architecture here, but Germantown today is a hip, trendy place to be. Lots of young people live here to be close to downtown Louisville and stay surrounded by great real estate at the same time. Germantown has parks, gyms, shops, markets and some pretty great places to get a bite to eat or an after-work drink.
Many people here have small home gardens to take advantage of the lawns, a pretty nice feature to have in neighborhoods close to downtown Louisville. Germantown is full of pretty one- and two-bedroom homes in great shotgun styles and larger three-bedroom homes in two-story and bungalow designs. Many homes here have a great mixture of historic features and modern elements, like hardwood floors paired with brightly-painted kitchen cabinets, or recessed lighting casting a glow over hand-carved fireplaces.
Ride a bike around Germantown and get a good look at all the lovely places to live in this great neighborhood that’s both modern and historic.
