Floyd County Reviews

New Albany, the county seat, has been experiencing a revitalization of the downtown area with local owned restaurants, from higher end steakhouse to breakfast and lunch spots. Comfortable place to live with dozens of neighborhoods, from ones built in the 1870s through the 1960s and 2000s, that offer homes from Victorian-inspired mansions to well-kept bungalows and ranch-style homes as well as a few buildings converted to lofts. Outside the city, the rolling, wooded hills in areas like Floyds Knobs, Greenville and Georgetown are just 10-15 minutes from Louisville but have sought-after subdivisions and more rural homes and farms. Also, there's the toll free Sherman Minton Bridge that makes commuting quick and usually without traffic jams into Louisville.

I absolutely love living in Floyd County Indiana. Its so clean, welcoming, and has a very active community. There is a big farmers market every Saturday, as well as yearly festivals you can attend! We have a lot to do inside and outside year round, so we never get bored.
Floyd County is great for anyone wanting to start a family. Whether it’s from our family friendly atmosphere to great schools, families will love Floyd. However, houses can be at a higher price to due to the high demand in this area. Also, there is little to no diversity with the majority of the population being white. Floyd is the perfect suburban county for new families.
