Louisville, Colorado: America’s Best Small Town (Once Again)

Louisville, Colorado has once again won the top spot in America’s Best Small Town category.  This is the second time in 3 years this old mining town outside Boulder, Colorado has won the honors from Money Magazine!  Criteria used were strength of schools, very low crime rates, weather (300 days of sunshine), low unemployment numbers, job growth, and location.

Some of the changes that have taken place in Louisville over the past few yrs include:

The old post office in old town has gone through a complete renovation, it now houses Lucky Pie and Sweet Cow.  The old automotive shop a few doors down on the corner of Main & Pine also went through a complete renovation, it now houses LuLu’s BBQ & the Cactus Wheel.  Just down Main St is Rex, they renovated this year and added a rooftop deck.  Empire has been on Main St for awhile now, they replaced Pasquinis.  All are great additions that have been extremely busy since opening.

One of the largest draws to Louisville during the summer is the free Street Faire.  Hundreds came out during the Friday evenings this summer.  They had a climbing wall for kids, jumpy castles/slides/face painting and many booths of local vendors.

Louisville Real Estate has done well over the past few years, especially compared to the rest of the country.  This summer homes have been going under contract in a matter of days.  Currently, the inventory is starting to build again with school going back into session, which means it is a great time to buy if you’re thinking about Louisville Real Estate for sale.  Interest rates are also currently below 4%!  Contact me with any questions or to get out and see what is currently available.
