My husband & I were in Louisville,Ky. last week. What a great city! Easy to get around, with public transportation that is all electric, running stops every 15 minutes or so. I found the different neighborhoods fun to visit, each with it’s own personality.
Some of the highlights, viewed from a city tour are The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. Every ‘young’ ballplayers dream!
And what would a tour of Louisville be without a visit to Churchill Downs?

Louisville is filled with wonderful old buildings. Old Louisville has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes in the country and is the third largest Historic Preservation District in the US, according to their official tour guide.
I enjoyed walking along South 4th Street and going into the old Seelbach and Brown Hotels. Beautiful architecture and wonderfully interesting.
Bourbon is synonyms with Louisville. It is part of the culture, in cocktails, candies, and cuisine.
There are many tours built around Bourbon, and they are fascinating. So imbibe in some local history and a few samples. Enjoy!!
I enjoyed some wonderful meals while in town. If you are like something authentic, lunch at The Mayan Cafe in the Nulu neighborhood is a must! Very fresh ingredients, and a wonderful setting.
Volare was my husband’s fav. Fresh handmade pasta, and the sauce reminded him of his mother’s sicilian recipe. It was a lovely upscale restaurant with great food, presentation, service and live music. A nice evening.
One night while walking around South 4th Street we ate at Marketplace restaurant. Outdoor dining at it’s best. The food was good and so was my Bourbon Old Fashioned!
