Being new to Colorado I'm always venturing out and exploring nearby cities. With majestic mountain scenery all around, it's fun being out and about. So when the Broomfield library accidently held my book at the Louisville library, I drove right on over to Louisville and discovered that I when I moved to Colorado from Brazil I had moved to the wrong city!
I instantly fell in love with this place, the feel of the town! Me+Louisville= Perfect Match.
Since then, nearly every Sunday my husband and I go on a morning date to a cute little coffee shop in downtown Louisville called Bittersweet. Just so you know, there are literally tons of cute, quaint coffee shops in the downtown area, I just happened to go to this one first and don't feel like going anywhere else. But if you don't want coffee at 9 am, there's a sweet lil' pub open where you can get a beer. Definite perk living in Louisville :)
Louisville can be described as quaint, local, vintage and progressive and there are a gazillion reasons why it's so great. It's a 20 minute drive up to the mountains, there are loads of mountain views, It's located in Boulder County so if you live there your kids have the privilege to go to Boulder Valley Schools, people are so down to Earth and you can hear people speaking different languages all over, the cultural diversity is great for a small town. The library is fantastic, it's a great family town, people have a high tolerance for kids and another great thing about Louisville is that there are 3 local breweries and lots of live music.
So if you are thinking of moving here, you won't be disappointed! That is IF you can find a place. The market is hot in Louisville and as Boulder continues to grow, so does the surrounding area. People are moving in from all over the place, mostly California and they all want to call Louisville home.
Locals say the work-life balance in here is hard to beat. Come summer, residents can look forward to weekly events featuring food trucks from local restaurants, beer gardens, live music and much more. Then there’s the Colorado sunshine, 1,800 acres of open space, and, of course, the Rocky Mountains, just a 20-minute drive away.
Here are some pictures of my Sunday morning date at Bittersweet in Louisville,CO.
