Shepherdsville is Bullitt County's seat, located on the banks of the Salt River. Quiet and historic, the population does not exceed 12,000, and retains an old-timey small town charm. Hillview lies along Interstate 65, and is considered a suburb of Louisville. Lebanon Junction, in the southern part of the county, is a quaint village that has become a popular canoeing destination along the Salt River. Well outside the hustle and bustle of Louisville, the villages that dot Bullitt County take pride in their slow and easy pace. However, the city lights are only a short drive away for anyone seeking a little more excitement, giving Bullitt County residents the best of both worlds.
The county's economy is largely reliant on its emergence as a flourishing distribution hub for internet businesses such as Zappos. The majority of these shipping warehouses lie between the suburbs just south of Louisville, with a close proximity to the airport and UPS's global air freight hub. A large portion of Bullitt County's population works in Louisville or Elizabethtown, while living in the less expensive suburbs to the south. Louisville has long since been heavy-hitter in the shipping and cargo industry, and the local economy is still dependent on that today. Fort Knox takes up an entire fifth of the county, and provides jobs for thousands of people within its Armory. The towns in the surrounding area offer many jobs within food service and retail, with a handful of opportunities relying on the tourism industry associated with the nearby Salt River.
