The Ohio River creates the geographical divide between Kentucky and Indiana, with Louisville situated just south of the Indiana border. As the largest city in Kentucky, Louisville is the center of the Metropolitan Statistical Area commonly referred to as “Kentuckiana” because it includes counties in both Kentucky and Indiana.

Greater Louisville has a culture that is hard to define not only because it blends the elements of two separate states, but also because it straddles the line between Southern and Midwestern. Influenced by the cultures of both regions, Louisville is rich in diversity and often said to be our nation’s northernmost city of the South and the southernmost city of the North.
