I purchased my home in Jeffersonville almost one year ago. We live just a few blocks from the river, and our neighborhood is fantastic. It really feels like a community here with neighbors helping each other out by doing things like helping them carry in their groceries, moving their garbage cans back near their homes after trash pick-up, lending tools and resources, and staying up-to-date on the neighborhood Facebook group page. We're within walking distance of locally owned restaurants, breweries, several parks, and historic sites. It's a perfect place to raise a child, and it's affordable and friendly!

I like living in Jeffersonville, Indiana mainly because of all the great places that are nearby to be in contact with nature, parks, the Ohio River, the beautiful sunsets, and also all the nice and friendly people who live here. It is ten minutes away from Louisville, KY, and also close to Indianapolis, Cincinnatti, Chicago, Nashville. There are a lot of quality restaurants to dine at, well-payed jobs, and many small family-owned businesses are located.
I have grown up in Jeffersonville Indiana for as long as I can remember. I went to Northaven Elementary, River Valley middle school, and Jeffersonville Highschool. I am now a graduating senior in the class of 2020 and I have to say I’ve absolutely loved my childhood. From a kid growing up on the autism spectrum the community and my family have really done so much to help me. Now that I’ve grown up coming out as gay I have had mostly nothing but support. I am confident that if I want to stay in this area after college then I won’t regret it.
