If you are looking for a getaway, Louisville, Kentucky is a great city to visit. It is famous as the home of the Kentucky Derby, but there is much more to do in Louisville. Fine restaurants, top quality arts and theaters can fill the evenings, and Louisville also has some excellent museums for the day.
But the city does revolve around the first weekend in May when the Kentucky Derby happens. If you are unable to get to the city, Churchill Downs does offer a wonderful tour of the track and it’s Derby Museum.
The Louisville Zoo is a fun afternoon. They have over 1,300 animals to see with a new Gorilla Sanctuary that has recently opened.
The Louisville Slugger Museum also provides a great experience for the baseball fan. You can even get a personalized bat on your trip.
If you enjoy bourbon on occasion, the Maker’s Mark Bourbon House & Lounge is your place to visit. They offer over 60 different bourbons to taste and it has been referenced as an experience to remember (or try to) by bourbon lovers.
