I have been born and raised in Taylorsville. Everyone knows everyone, and new people are welcome with open arms. Taylorsville, Kentucky is a 45 minute drive from Louisville, Kentucky; the home of the Kentucky Derby. All popular stores like Target, Walmart, Old Navy, Nike, etc. are short commutes for the teenage population of our town. Many of our city's teenagers have jobs in order to pay for their cars, schooling, and extracurricular activities. Friday night high school football games draw the largest crowds as the community unites in their support for its' students. The high school has a renowned music program, with its Varsity Women's Choir receiving distinguished awards for 5 consecutive years and the show band receiving regional recognition at musical competition festivals. Taylorsville is a small town, but it's OUR town.

Since the whole counties population is around 20,000 you get a feeling that is not easily found in other town. A very close connection with the people. We all grew up together, even most of our parents and grandparents grew up with each other. Family means a great deal to the community, there really is no friends, only the strong bond of family that ties the town together. The Public schools are very good at getting students college and career ready. The best part of the town is that it is a very relaxed and laid-back. It is the best place to just relax. The only major drawback is there really is nothing to do for fun. Sure there is a lake, but once you go there and walk the trails 3-4 times it becomes quite boring.
There are plenty of friendly people here where everyone knows everyone; however, excluding Friday Night Lights and the casual night a McDonalds or DQ, there isn’t much to do here.
