  • This is a nice walk for families; we had three generations. The kids will mainly enjoy the activity and novelty, the adults will find the river views interesting. The splash park and picnic area on th...  more »
  • Blazing hot when we stopped but worth the view. You will see the old wheel boats in the river and an awesome view of the city skyline. Much better at night.  more »

  • My favorite spot in Louisville. Walk across to another state with friends. The Indiana side has all kinds of restaurants to explore... I recommend the Red Yeti bar for booze or Parlour for pizza. There's sea food, frozen yogurt, a dive bar, even a cigar lounge. Makes for a great evening. There's always entertainment on the bridge itself, and when it's not prime time they still play classical music over the speakers. Great for a date! You can rent a bike below if you don't feel like a stroll.
  • First time walking the bridge. Guaranteed not to be the last. Stunning views. Family atmosphere. Great for locals and visitors alike. Lots of things to do on both sides of the river.
  • A great place to walk. Super tourist spot. Great views. Highly recommend. Someone said walk across and back for a two mile walk. Lanes are even painted on it. Benches to rest on if you need a break in your walk. Loved it!
  • Love Louisville Ky. Go Cardinals... Be apart of the fun and check out this beautiful bridge any time of day. Whether your on a trip or just wanting something to do. This is a fun and long walk across with lights and a lot of people. Rent a bicycle đźš´ or buggy. And enjoy a day or weekend with the family. Starts getting busy when people are getting off work or as it gets later into the day. But well worth it. Its free to walk and Healthier.
  • We've walked this bridge hundreds of times. Love the views of Louisville, the river, the bridge and especially the sunsets and night light shows on the bridge. Also great that there are always so many activities going on at both ends. It's too bad they state that dogs are allowed on the bridge. This is a must see destination in Louisville.

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.
