The only reason I even know about Louisville, is because this is where my boyfriend grew up. I am from Houston, TX and have never been outside of Texas until the day I joined the military. I met my boyfriend over 4 years ago and met his parents not long after that. Every year we had visited and every year I have LOVED it. The people around here are SO nice. The weather is amazing! Plus, it snows! Being from south Texas, we don't get snow. I love it!

I absolutely love living in Louisville! There is a wonderful community, and many small, personal events in the town that are open to everyone. There is a great sense of caring for the environment, and the people that live here are some of the kindest you will ever meet!
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.
