Frankfort Avenue Is very nice. Lot's of Stores and Coffee Shop. An occasional Train Comes Through there and makes some noise but not to bad. There's lot's of little intimate stores close together. It has the Kentucky School for the bling on it and the road Crossings Speak to tell you when the light changes so you can cross safely.... More

A great neighborhood to safely explore - lots of boutiques, eateries and interesting architecture. How can you go wrong with coffee shops, bookstores, high-end spirits and restaurants - all locally-owned?

This a great place to hang out. I have 3 kids and we are able to walk up and down Frankfort Ave grab something to eat and have a great time. Or you can dress up and have a romantic date with your loved. I recommend you check it out.

The Frankfort Avenue corridor has really grown over the years. Currently you can find almost any type of food and drink you would desire. It is busy and traffic can be heavy. Parking is at a premium with much more demand than supply. We usually take a Lyft to avoid the parking puzzle. Lots of shops to visit. All in... More
