Louisville, Kentucky

You can’t visit Louisville without a stop at the Louisville Slugger Museum, where daily tours are offered. Watch a bat being made and receive your own mini-souvenir bat to take home. The Museum is just one stop on the city’s entertaining and informative Museum Row. With ten unique offerings, from sipping bourbon and observing artwork inside the funky 21C Museum Hotel (where you can also stay for the evening and eat inside the award-winning Proof on Main) to learning about one of the city’s most famous native sons inside the Muhammad Ali Center, Museum Row offers a medley of adventures. Don’t forget Louisville’s most famous attraction, Churchill Downs. Even if it’s not Kentucky Derby time, you’re likely to see some action on the track, so order a mint julep and jump into the fun. For a track tour and to learn more about the track’s history, head over to the adjacent Kentucky Derby Museum. Walk or jog the beautiful 2.4-mile loop inside scenic Cherokee Park, where recreational offerings include biking, fishing and an archery range. Take in a show or musical at the Actors Theatre in downtown’s vibrant Main Street district. For a slice of history and some delicious food and drink, step inside Jack Fry’s.
