The Highlands Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The places to see and the things to do never seem to end in The Highlands, one of the most coveted neighborhoods in Louisville. Vintage meets modern on the famous Bardstown Road and Baxter Avenue starting at Gardiner Lane next to I-264 and ending at Baxter Avenue and Lexington Road, next to the famous Cavehill Cemetery. Antique shops, trendy boutiques, art galleries and even an old Southern Plantation make this the quaintest suburb in Louisville.
Slip into any of the cozy coffee shops on Bardstown Road and enjoy a cup of java with the many college students in the area. They attend either Sullivan University, situated off of I-264 and Bardstown Road or Bellarmine University on Newburg Road, also a short distance from Bardstown Road.
Cherokee Park, one of the many parks in The Highlands, lies on 389.13 acres of hilly, forested ground in The Highlands. Families can take care of all their recreational needs here, and even the family dog can play at Cochran Dog Park.
On Sundays some residents might attend St. James Catholic Church at Edenside Avenue and Bardstown Road, a magnificent cathedral dedicated in 1913, now on the National Register of Historic Places. There’s also Bardstown Road Presbyterian Church, and St. Paul United Methodist Church at Douglas and Bardstown Road, as well as other denominations dotting this stretch of road.
The Highlands offers it all: public and private schools, shopping, medical care and anything else the residents might need.
On sultry, summer evenings, residents stroll the main thoroughfare, occasionally stopping to chat with neighbors or give directions to “out-of-towners.” They might stop for a bite to eat at one of the many outdoor-patio restaurants. The dinner is down-home cooking, fine cuisine or fast food in this neighborhood. The dessert is Southern hospitality.
