Safe and comfortable is probably the best way to describe Louisville. Only, there's really nothing special about it. The town is safe and quaint, but as far as shopping or fun goes, there is very little to do. In order to do anything you have to drive at least 25 - 30 minutes out of Louisville and into Canton, its less safe neighbor. My biggest complaint about Louisville is that there's nothing to do and even the Giant Eagle seems to have poorer management than other locations! We have about 5 pizza shops, 1 Grinders, and 3 dollar stores. Giant Eagle is the only close by grocery store. Yet we have 2 bars across the street from each other. All I ask is that we maybe replace the constant building of dollar stores, pizza shops, and fast food with a nice café or something fun to do so I don't have to drive 30 minutes to hang out with friends.

Louisville is a small town & has that small town feel. The residents are very supportive of the high school football team. It is a low-crime area. People are supportive of each other’s struggles & don’t hesitate to rally behind residents fighting cancer, etc.
The general atmosphere of this community is pretty judgmental. You cannot be different in any way without the fear of being ridiculed. If I could choose, I wouldn't have even lived here the first time. I'm only here because my parents wanted to live somewhere safe. So I would definitely not choose to live here again. I'm sure there are plenty of places that are worse to live, however, so I would rank it somewhere in the top 50%.Hopefully this area will gain some open-mindedness and diversity in the future, which will increase business opportunities for the town. But this would require someone around here to change how they act, and that's not exactly easy.
