Lights Under Louisville at the Mega Caverns

While Thanksgiving is still a week away, one of Louisville’s most popular holiday experiences begins tomorrow, November 16 and runs through December 31. Lights Under Louisville at the Mega Caverns is the world’s only fully underground drive through Christmas light show.

There are over 3 million lights and 850 characters displayed to the tunes of your favorite Christmas carols. The young (and young at heart) will truly enjoy the sights and sounds.

New this year is the Christmas Express. These are daytime trips, and instead of driving yourself through, you are able to enjoy the show from an open top trailer. The rides last about 30 minutes and after it is through, children can enjoy milk and cookies!

With only 40 days until Christmas, you might want to start planning your trip now. To avoid long lines and wait times, try to avoid weekends, as these days seem to be the most crowded.

For more information on times and prices please visit http://lightsunderlouisville.com/#/.

From all of us at Family Realty we hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Andrew Beckman - Featured Family Realty Agent of the Week

Meet our Family Realty - Featured Agent of the Week, Andrew Beckman!

Here is what Andrew has to say:

"Outside of real estate I spend my time working out with the wife at her crossfit gym, racing bikes, riding bikes, directing a local racing team - Appriss Racing presented by Clarksville Schwinn and Whayne Supply. When I'm not being active, I'm spending time with family and friends. I have two beautiful nieces and a nephew I adore. We love to travel, and love the mountains. If every trip could be to the mountains, any mountains, I'd be happy.

I transitioned into real estate after acquiring rental properties in Germantown during my tenure as a state's attorney. I went on to law school at University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law where I received my Juris Doctorate as well as a Masters of Arts in Civic Leadership. I am a professional member of the Kentucky Bar Association and the American Bar Association. My goal is to make the process of buying and selling real estate as smooth and easy as possible while protecting my clients in the transaction."

Neighborhood of the Week - Audubon Park

Just miles from downtown Louisville and nestled in a tight net community with convenient access to schools, hospitals and many local park areas, Audubon Park is an ideal place for a family.

The city has a long rich history dating back to the 1800s. One of the more unique things about the City of Audubon Park is its street names. The city was named after John James Audubon who was a bird artist and therefore the reason all but two of the city’s streets are named after birds; Cardinal, Dove, Robin, Wren, Linnet, Thrush, Oriole, Chickadee, Crossbill, Falcon, Curlew, Teal, Widgeon, Meadowlark, Sora and Eagle Pass. The two exceptions are Audubon Parkway and Valley Drive  In 1978 the city was designated as a Bird Sanctuary with support from the Audubon Park Garden Club and City of Audubon Park.

Each home in this area has great charm and character with an emphasis on nature and green space.   One of the more popular community events is the annual "Festival of the Dogwood". The festival highlights the natural beauty from the gorgeous tree lined streets when they bloom every April.

As you take a walk or drive through this area you can see why so many people would love to call it home. If you are interested in finding out more about homes for sale in Audubon Park contact a Family Realty Team Member.

'Tis The Season to Have Your HVAC Checked!

It's getting cold out there! Although some of us can handle the cold more than others, with these brisk Louisville autumn nights, chances are you have already started turning on the heat in your home - but have you had you had your routine HVAC maintenance yet?! We all know how miserable it is to wake up in the middle of the night, absolutely freezing because your heat went out. It always seems to happen at the worst times, and whether you have pets, kids, or a spouse...you better get ready to hear some complaining! Especially since this scenario is avoidable with routine preventative maintenance. It's important to have your HVAC checked at least twice a year. First, when you are about to turn on the heat for the first time, and second, when you are going to turn on your AC for the first time. This way you can catch and address any problems before they become a major inconvenience. Just remember that the longer into the season you wait, the more calls your local HVAC technician will be receiving. If something does go wrong, there is a good chance you will have to wait a few days before it can be fixed! So, make sure to get ahead of any HVAC issues, and can stay cozy and warm this season.
