Derby City

Kentucky’s largest city, Louisville, is best known as the home of the Kentucky Derby. The city's location means that it's strongly influenced by both Southern and Midwestern culture, a blend evident in the city’s cuisine, cultural scene, and climate. Louisville is one of the oldest cities west of the Appalachian Mountains. Things to do on a vacation to Louisville include visiting the Old Louisville neighborhood, which boasts an impressive collection of Victorian homes and buildings. The striking waterfront skyline showcases the city’s thriving economy. Louisville is also home to a vibrant indie music and art scene, as well as plenty of quirky independently owned restaurants, shops, and cafes. As the city is a major center of the American whisky industry, local bourbon is ubiquitous in both upscale bars and blue-collar venues. Louisville is in Kentucky (KY).

Where to stay in Louisville

Old Town has a number of atmospheric hotels close to the city’s main attractions, while hotels in the Highlands neighborhood offer proximity to the city’s most unusual bars, restaurants, and stores. Louisville’s collection of bed and breakfasts, generally farther from town, are a great way to experience some warm Kentucky hospitality. To save some money and enjoy the city’s scenic surroundings on a vacation in Louisville, consider one of Louisville’s campgrounds. The Jefferson Memorial Forest is just 24 km (15 mi) south of downtown.
