There are plenty of places to eat; almost any fast food restaurant in the town. They offer all health services here, so you don't have to go out of town. Everything is at least 5 to 8 miles away from homes. It's a convenient place to live because it's only 1.5 miles away from a major city in Kentucky, which is Louisville. It's close to the state's capitol: Frankfort. As well as miles away from Indiana and close to many waterways.

It is not bad to live in Shepherdsville. It has the most fast food restaurants in a 1-mile radius. There are so many diverse options for fast food. The city usually adds 1-4 new restaurants every year so there is always something for everyone, even the pickiest eaters. More people are working and living in Shepherdsville and traffic is becoming a problem. There is only one major road, highway 44, that runs throughout the city of Shepherdsville. There has been a little bit of construction to add a bypass and to add more lanes, but it isn't enough. There aren't many doctor offices and there isn't a fully-functional hospital. If you need anything major, it's best to drive 30 minutes to Louisville.
Shepherdsville is a small town that is actually one of the biggest places for sexual assault and sex trafficking. Because it is right off the corridors of two main highways, it’s easily accessible to those who wish to inflict harm on others.
The city itself has become run down and it doesn’t offer many restaurants besides fast food and loads of chicken places. It lacks shopping centers and uniqueness.
