Great schools. Close to cities and culture, but removed enough to keep the small town vibe.
Neighborhoods are peaceful and friendly...although avoid Celebration Park as they can get a bit carried away (if you park wrong, they will complain. Sneeze and everyone knows. And don’t dare have a party unless they are all invited! Too much HOA power for the busybodies).
But a terrific little town for families and amazing schools!

Crestwood is an overall sleepy, yet enthusiastic suburb of Louisville. What began as a place where the old folk would retire to, quickly transitioned to a town where the youth flourish. That has to do with the local school system, Oldham County Schools, which is rated as one of the best schools systems in Kentucky. South Oldham High School provides equal opportunity for every student to succeed not only in school, but in their life beyond education. Crestwood is the epitomie of a quaint, Midwestern suburb and is an extremely enjoyable place to live.
Good! Love how green the area is. Beautiful place to be in. Small town, where everyone knows each other. Love having a Walmart super close.
