Explore the Museums

Explore the Museums

Muhammad Ali Center: What most people don’t know is that Muhammad Ali is a Louisville native. In 2005, this museum was made in honor of him and his career. Instead of just being a typical, boring museum, a lot of the pieces are interactive and you can even watch a motivating movie about him on the fifth floor. Even if you are not a big boxing fan, this museum will definitely inspire you!

21 C Museum Hotel: Have you ever thought about sleeping at a contemporary art museum? Well this is your moment! Even if you don’t stay at the hotel, the museum is free to the public and is filled with the most up-to-date contemporary art from around the world.

Kentucky Derby Museum and Churchill Downs: Horse racing is the most intense 2 minute sport known to man. Learn all about the history and traditions of the Kentucky Derby at the Kentucky Derby Museum, then use your knowledge to watch a race at the Churchill Downs!

Bourbon, bourbon, and more bourbon

Bourbon, bourbon, and more bourbon

Bourbon was discovered in Kentucky, and now produces 95% of the world’s supply. So, when visiting Kentucky, trying the bourbon is a must. Distilleries are located all throughout Kentucky, but luckily there is a trail of them in Louisville. The Mint Julep Experiences, Evan Williams Bourbon Experience, Jim Bean Urban Stillhouse, and Kentucky Peerless Distilling Co, are all located within walking distance of each other and offer bourbon tasting and tours. An activity you can’t miss doing!

Good Eats

Good Eats

Feast BBQ: Pulled pork was first made in Kentucky, and has made history to the American culture since. One of the best spots to try it is at Feast BBQ. Even if you or someone you are with isn’t a big meat eater, they offer vegetarian, gluten-free, and soy-free options as well!

Eiderdown: Beer cheese is a dipping sauce you HAVE to try when visiting Kentucky. What sounds like a disgusting combo is actually something incredibly tasty. Eiderdown has an amazing pretzel and beer cheese appetizer that you must get.

Royal’s Hot Chicken: Try out Louisville’s fried chicken scene at this hot spot located in Nulu. The best part? If you are looking to get a drink, they offer bourbon milkshakes and even Frosé (frozen rosé). You will not find these kind of drinks anywhere else in Louisville.

Catch a Baseball Game

Home of the Minor League team, the Louisville Bats, is the Slugger Field. If you are a baseball fan, you should definitely try to see a game. If not, Louisville is known for making baseball bats since 1884 so it is a must to explore the Slugger Factory and Museum. You can take a tour of the factory or just explore the museum! If you have any friends or family back home that are baseball fans, this is the perfect spot for a souvenir of a personalized baseball bat.
