MoneyWatch: Top 10 Places to Live in 2011

1. Louisville, Colorado

Population: 18,400
Unemployment: 6.3 percent

Don’t call it “Louie-ville” - it’s pronounced Lewis-ville and sits at number one on CNN Money’s Top 100. The city is described by the Chamber of Commerce as a blend of hometown atmosphere, high tech jobs and modern values. Lots of positions are available in the tech, telecom, aerospace, clean energy and health care fields, and more companies are moving into the area every year.

There’s no shortage of entertainment either. Go hiking on over 25 miles of trails, camping in one of the 27 parks or skiing down one of the many runs surrounding Louisville. If you’re feeling really adventurous, check out the world-class mountain biking trails in the nearby Rockies. Looking for something more relaxing? Catch a movie at the 12-screen movie theater, visit the Louisville Public Library or watch a game at one of the four fields in the Louisville Recreation Center.

All the charm and action of Louisville come at a surprisingly affordable rate – the median home price sits at $343,750 according to Trulia.com. With all the job opportunities, good schools and one of the lowest crime rates in Colorado, it’s no wonder Louisville is number one.
