Louisville was named the number 1 best place to live in 2009 by CNN's Money Magazine.
In the 1870s, coal miners were attracted to Louisville, in part because it was a democratic community that was not owned and controlled by a single mining company. Louisville features a highly educated population, diverse businesses and small town ambiance. If you become one of the residents of Louisville, you'll enjoy the Colorado lifestyle with nearly 1700 acres of open space, a vital old town/downtown and easy access to nearby cultural amenities. Boulder Valley and St Vrain Valley School Districts offer stellar education and progressive schooling.
With the dry, clear weather, low crime, below average unemployment rates, good health care, and low taxes, it's easy to understand Louisville's number one status in the country.
