I love traveling down Frankfort Ave in the car or on foot. It is full of old storefronts and buildings which house delicious restaurants, eclectic stores, and much more. Its especially fun in the summer when you can eat at one of the many delicious restaurants, and then stop at the Comfy Cow for ice cream.

I just happened to be in the neighborhood, but I liked it a lot. Lots of places to shop, shop, shop...can't go wrong shopping here! The atmosphere is very nice.

Wonderful up and coming neighborhood and entertainment district. Lots of great restaurants, bars and other eateries, boutiques and hair salons. It seems to have surpassed Bardstown Road as the hip place to go.

Ask for the "walk box" at the YMCA counter -- 6.1 mile walk is a great way to get a feeling for the downtown... We enjoyed it on a chilly/cold in the shade December day... Lots of empty buildings and limited eating locations, however...

Don't go to Frankfort Ave. It's a waste of time. Most places are closed down. And the one's that are open don't have much.

I am a local and take out of town guys to the museum. Always a hit. The way the museum walks you from the first firearm to modern day is spectacular.

Maybe Bardstown Road is your kind of strip; well Frankfort Avenue is just as lively at 11:00 pm as Bardstown Road any night of the week. Do yourself a favor and check out some the little beer joints and eateries here too! Parking on side streets is safe, love this end of Louisville!

This place sparkles! It is just amazing what little shops and restaurants have sprung up in this area, each one unique. From bookstores, to hair salons and arts and crafts, this is a very special area of town.
