It's always fun getting out to explore the city, especially since there are so many up and coming areas with great local restaurants and coffee shops. Beechmont is one of those areas in town that I feel is going to take off very soon. We recently went to the area to look at some of the homes that are for sale and we really enjoyed all that the area had to offer. One of the things that really stood out was the amount of parks that are located throughout the area. Most all of them had walking trails and playgrounds for kids to play at. It was a perfect area for families with young children to relocate in. Beechmont also has a very hip coffee shop called Sungeros that we stopped in and ordered a cup of coffee and a pastry. Their coffee was amazing, but we really enjoyed the low key setting of the shop. We also visited a popsicle shop that was much like Steel City Pops on Bardstown Road. All of the ingredients were purchased from local farmers in order to make the popsicles. In fact, you could sit out in the lobby and look through a glass window to watch all of the popsicles being made on site. Not only is the area up and coming, but it is located right down the road from Iroquois Park which is a gem to the city of Louisville. They offer certain events throughout the seasons such as movies in the amphitheater during the summer months and The Pumpkin Spectacular during Halloween. They have amazing bike trails, hiking trails, playgrounds, basketball courts, and great views of the city. If you're out and about, head over to this part of town and check it out. We promise, you'll be very impressed!
