It’s Probably Because you get the Yellow Scene There


If you count Louisville as your home, consider yourself lucky, and not just because many of you get a free copy of this fine publication delivered to your mailbox. Money Magazine anointed Louisville the third-best place to live in the United States last month.

Money, which named Louisville to its top 5 in 2005, focused its survey this year on smaller towns offering the best combination of economic opportunity, schools, safe streets, activities and a sense of community.

The magazine compiles an annual list of the top 100 places to live in the country.

It cited outdoor life (“spectacular”), location (six miles from Boulder and 25 from Denver), and home prices among Louisville’s draw (even though it’s a bit more expensive than it used to be, a farmhouse near Main Street can be had for less than $200,000).

Oh, Money also mentions the weekly Downtown Street Faire—which The Yellow Scene sponsors each summer—as part of the reason the community is a great place to live in.

Middleton, Wisc., and Hanover, N.H., were the top two places to live. Parker came in at No. 26, the only other Colorado town to make the list.
