While Louisville is famous for the Kentucky Derby, it remains a popular destination for travelers throughout the world. With vibrant southern culture, some of the best food in the world, a revolution in civic spirit, and innovative attractions, it's a great place to visit when you're looking for something out of the ordinary.
Out and About in Louisville
If you're looking for hotels close to SDF airport, make sure to visit Old Louisville nearby to see the largest Victorian Preservation Neighborhood in the United States. If you love the paranormal, "America's Most Haunted Neighborhood" hosts nightly Old Louisville Haunted Tours around some of its spookiest locations. You can even visit a replica of Central Park designed by the actual architect of New York's iconic green oasis. The park hosts Kentucky Shakespeare from June to September.
Eating and Drinking
Few things are as iconic to Louisville as its famous Kentucky Bourbon. When you want to get a taste of this intoxicating drink that's as authentic as it gets, make sure to look for hotels in Louisville that sit along the Urban Bourbon Trail. This mix between stamp collecting and bar hopping will take you on a tour of Louisville's finest distilleries and brewing companies. To get the official experience, stop by the Visitors Center on 4th and Jefferson Street, close to many Downtown Louisville Hotels, to pick up your official Urban Bourbon Trail packet.
You can't walk a block without stumbling on a delicious eatery in Louisville, but if you want to stay near the densest collection of mouthwatering eats, look for cheap Louisville hotels in the NuLu (New Louisville) and Butchertown neighborhoods. Both areas have seen an enormous revitalization effort in recent decades, and now everything from bourbon-smoked ribs to melt-in-your-mouth bacon pastries and other southern-inspired fare is available for foodies to discover.
