Louisville Reviews

Louisville is a fantastic town and is a really great place to grow up. It is a pretty small town but it is growing consistently. I went through the public school system in Louisville and the teachers are great and really care about the work that they're doing. Louisville is not the most diverse of places, but because it is growing as Denver is, I am sure this will change soon. While Louisville is fairly expensive, there are towns just on its borders like Superior and Lafayette that are more affordable and are still close to Louisville's downtown and schools. If you are looking for a town with a lot of personality and charm that is still close to the mountains and the city, Louisville is the perfect place.

Louisville is a fantastic small suburban town ideal for families due to it's safe, quiet atmosphere that is isolated from densely populated areas while also existing in the center of the Denver-Boulder area. Louisville is known for its excellent parks and wildlife sanctuarys, and extensive recreational activities. Louisville has a very welcoming and friendly community with plenty of family owned businesses downtown, and many common food and grocery store chains located closer to the perimeter. You can expect easy transportation to nearby businesses and schools by both well maintained bike paths and roads and a very good public transportation system. Louisville also has an excellent view of the Flat Irons over Boulder, and is no more than 45 minutes from the closest ski resort.
I have lived in Louisville, Colorado my whole life and I would not want to have lived anywhere else. After I finish college I would like to raise a family here. There are so many great places around here and so many great activities. I love Main Street and all of the activities they put on over there throughout the year. It is a very very safe town and all of the schools are really great!
