Fun in the September Sun

Spending a Life in Shively

Shively is a large community full of parks and packed with shops and restaurants along Dixie Highway. The donut shop has always been a big hit here, and the shopping center at Southland Terrace has lots of little places to explore. This neighborhood has its own animal hospital, lots of schools and its own city status. Shively has its own police force and a pretty interesting past.

As soon as Prohibition, the nationwide ban on alcohol, was lifted, Shively celebrated! Many distilleries were built here very quickly and for a little while, Shively had a reputation for being a little bit wild. Those days are long gone, but local residents still know this area as "Lively" Shively because of that colorful past.

Today, Shively has a sweet suburban look. This neighborhood is full of bungalow, two-story and ranch homes sitting on green lawns underneath leafy trees. You'll see pretty white fences, great traditional architecture, trimmed hedges and inviting front porches. You'll see what Shively looks like today and you'll see lots of reasons why you might like living in this lively, colorful, interesting little city.
