The Highlands

The Highlands is an area in Louisville, Kentucky which contains a high density of shops, eclectic businesses, and many upscale restaurants. It is centered along a three-mile stretch of Bardstown Road and Baxter Avenue and is so named because it sits atop a ridge between the middle and south forks of Beargrass creek. The commercial area extends from the intersection of Bardstown Road and Taylorsville/Trevillian Way in the south, to the intersection of Baxter and Lexington Road in the north, a length of 3.2 miles. A 1/2 mile section of nearby Barret Avenue also contains many similar business. The residential area is separated from the other adjacent areas like Germantown and Crescent Hill by the south and north forks of beargrass creek. The middle fork runs through Cherokee Park, and the south fork divides Germantown from Tyler Park, after flowing past several cemeteries and undeveloped forests downstream from Joe Creason Park. Due to its large collection of pubs and  restaurants, it is locally known as "Restaurant Row"
