Top city spots in Louisville, USA

Louisville is a sports fan’s dream. It has the biggest horse race on the planet, a baseball bat taller than a building, and it was home to the most famous sportsperson who ever lived.

This friendly US city, the largest in the state of Kentucky, has much to offer tourists including beautiful parks, historic buildings, and a wealth of museums. Horse racing fans should head straight to the Churchill Downs race track, the home venue of the famous Kentucky Derby. You can take a tour around the Kentucky Derby Museum to view important racing memorabilia and play with interactive displays for historical insights into the Greatest Race. The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory and its 120-foot replica of Babe Ruth's bat is the place for baseball aficionados. The Big Bat, the largest bat in the world, is an exact-scale replica of Babe Ruth's 34-inch Louisville Slugger bat. The giant sports bat leans dramatically against the outside of the museum that also features a 17-ton baseball glove sculpture, the engraved Signature Wall, and historic baseball bats like Hank Aaron's 700th Home Run Bat. Louisville is the birthplace of Muhammad Ali, a man arguably considered to be the greatest boxer of all time. The city is home to the fascinating Muhammad Ali Center, a gallery built to commemorate Ali’s remarkable life, and venue for art exhibitions, youth education programs, and cultural events. Feeling like something less sport orientated? Seek out The Speed Art Museum, the oldest and largest museum of art in Kentucky that showcases exhibits of ancient, classical, and modern art. For historical culture book a ticket to tour The Frazier History Museum. Here you will find the ceremonial sword of Founding Father Josiah Bartlett, and the family bible of Daniel Boone amongst its many notable items on display. Interesting districts in the city include the beautiful neighbourhood of Old Louisville. Take a stroll through St. James Court and Central Park to admire the magnificent architecture of the largest collection of Victorian homes in America. The Louisville Mega Cavern, with 100 acres of underground passageways, is one of the cities most popular attractions. Not for the faint-hearted, this former limestone mine features aerial ropes and the only fully underground zip line course in the world. Hungry? Forget about KFC and go straight to Fourth Street Live! This is the party and dining hub in downtown Louisville where you will find live music venues, restaurants, and bars. If you fancy a nightcap before you turn in for the night, we would suggest a glass of Kentucky bourbon!
