Louisville Reviews

32 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review Louisville
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!
Louisville is a smaller community but very diverse. With downtown louisville being a great communal space with fun shops and dining places, to the schools bringing students and families together. There are sports facilities and lots of parks. The neighborhoods are neighbor oriented meaning they are close together while giving families their own space. There are many places to meet new people and fun venues to get together.
