Louisville Reviews

Excellent local eateries for food and coffee. Multiple hiking/biking trails for those who love the outdoors and a movie theater with wine/beer for those who would prefer to stay inside. And sunshine almost everyday!
There are more and more people moving here because of all the hype the area is getting. This is making housing more expensive. Growing up here was great, it was still a small town and everyone knew everyone else, then more people started moving here because Boulder was too expensive, so Louisville became more expensive. Houses have doubled in cost in the 20 years I've lived here. I miss the small town feel that was here when I was younger.
I love living in Louisville. It's absolutely stunning most of the year, there's easy access to Boulder and Denver, two of the coolest cities in the nation, and the city is small enough that it retains the close knit feel of a small town. The downtown area of Louisville is quaint and very pretty and the environment makes nights out really fun.
