Chefs are taking traditional regional Southern dishes and putting their own unique twists on them, making Louisville the epicenter for “New Southern Cuisine”. And of course, you’ll need to learn the local food language of treats like: benedictine, burgoo, modjeskas and the hot brown. Don’t be afraid to ask!

Things to Do in Louisville, KY

Experience Louisville by taking part in events, arts and culture, shopping, sports and outdoor activities, tours and much more.

With more than 120 attractions, Louisville has something for everyone to see and do. The iconic Churchill Downs and Kentucky Derby Museum pays homage to the thoroughbred horse – a hallmark of what makes Kentucky so special. The bat of most major league baseball teams is made at the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. The Belle of Louisville is the oldest operating steamboat still in existence. And, Louisville’s native son, Muhammad Ali, is now remembered with a self-guided tour of “Ali’s Footsteps of Greatness."

Another hallmark of Kentucky – bourbon – has taken center stage as a “must do” when visiting the city. The Urban Bourbon Experience is comprised of more than ten distilleries that are open for public tours and tastings. The Urban Bourbon Trail boasts over 35 bars and restaurants with more than 60 bourbons and bourbon-inspired culinary delights – so download the passport, collect your stamps and enjoy a special prize at the end. If the arts are more to your liking, Louisville is one of only a handful of U.S. cities with a professional full-time orchestra, opera, ballet, children’s theatre, dinner theatre and Broadway Series. The Speed Art Museum and the KMAC both showcase the visual arts in their own stunning spaces. These, plus a zoo, amusement park, breweries, historic homes, confectionaries, parks and music festivals comprise the fabric of Louisville’s cultural scene.
