With a population of over 600,000 inhabitants, Louisville is Kentucky’s largest city.
The city is perhaps best known for hosting the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs every May. Even if you’re not catching a horse race, Churchill Downs is still a site worth seeing. Check out the Kentucky Derby Museum next door to learn more about the iconic sport’s history.
If you’re visiting in other months of the year, don’t worry, there's still plenty to see and do. Louisville was the birthplace of Mohammed Ali, and his childhood home is open to the public as the Mohammed Ali Childhood Home Museum. The Speed Art Museum features hundreds of collections of art, on various mediums and from different styles. Louisville is also the home to bourbon, so if you’re over 21, you can’t leave the city without trying some of the classic drink. The Urban Bourbon Trail is an area lined with the best bars and restaurants for bourbon.
NuLu is the place to be for art galleries, chic boutiques, and locally-sourced, fresh food. Butchertown is a great place for good bourbon, as well as the best nightlife. Head to Highlands for the trendiest restaurants and later to Old Louisville to check out some historic sites in the city.
Locals in the city tend to be welcoming and friendly, and the city can feel more like a small town at times, with a close-knit community.
Be sure to visit the city in October to watch the leaves turn colors.
