What's Lively in Shively
Shively is definitely a suburban neighborhood. There's a large park here and several schools and churches. There are plenty of places to take the kids, little shops, restaurants and all the places you'd expect to find in any large community. But Shively has had a bit of a wild past. The history here has given the community the nickname "lively" Shively.
When Prohibition ended, distilleries popped up all over Shively. This helped turn the neighborhood into a bit of a boom town, and people flocked here to live. After a few decades, most of the distilleries were gone. Shively was later embroiled in a scandal when it was discovered that the police chief was taking bribes.
Today, Shively is truly a kid-friendly community that still has roots in the bourbon industry. Some of the distilleries have come back to the neighborhood, and it's now a stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. You're going to want to stop here to see the real estate.
The pretty bungalow homes here are made in classic styles with multi-bedroom designs. There's a lot of brick and stone in Shively, set against a backdrop of bright green lawns and tall shade trees. There's a lot of great homes here. Once you start looking around Shively, you'll start discovering them everywhere.
