Every city has one: the vibrant, bustling nightlife district, the party strip … Fortunately for us, the Highlands has all of that and more. Running the length of Baxter and Bardstown Roads from Broadway to the Watterson, the Highlands is the place to be for weekend nightlife, and Friday/Saturday nights will definitely deliver fun and frivolity in spades. Lush parks and stunning architecture lend an air of old elegance to the residential areas directly bordering the main drag. Mature trees and well-manicured homes belie the pride and affection the residents have for their neighborhood. Best of all, the residential streets are removed enough from the strip to be quiet and peaceful, while still close enough to access the best nightlife in the city – and get home safely.
