I am in love with Louisville! A city you never knew was just waiting for you.
1.Get artsy at 21c Museum Hotel
This hotel located downtown on West Main Street doubles as a contemporary art museum. A double-size gold replica of Michelangelo’s statue of David stands by the street near the entrance, and art exhibitions rotate throughout the space.
Unfortunately, it costs money to stay the night and to eat dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, Proof on Main, but the museum is free and open to the public year-round
2. Be in two states at once on the Big Four Bridge
The Big Four Bridge is a former railroad bridge built across the Ohio River in 1895 connecting Louisville Waterfront Park to Jeffersonville, Indiana. It’s a gathering spot on nice days and evenings.
At about a mile long, the bridge is open for pedestrians and bike riders to cross at their leisure. The bridge has cool lights and music, and vendors pop up at the edges to satisfy your thirst and cravings.
3.Visit the Speed Art Museum on Sundays
Admissions into the museum are free on Sundays until 2021. The museum’s various collections include art of ancient cultures, African art, Native American art, European and American art, contemporary art and photography. (Some temporary exhibitions may not be included in Sundays’ free admission.)
4. Explore Cave Hill Cemetery
Nearly 300 acres, Cave Hill Cemetery is a rural, garden-style cemetery founded in 1848. It is the resting place of many people important to Louisville’s history, including Muhammad Ali, Colonel Sanders and Louisville founder George Rogers Clark. The national cemetery also is the burial site for over 5,500 soldiers killed in American wars dating back to the Civil War.
It’s free to visit the cemetery and walk among the trees, flowers, statues and mausoleums.
5. The Brown Hotel To Eat a Hot Brown and Kentucky Pie.
We were celebrating my son’s first birthday here and shared a hot brown, the Hot Brown is an open-faced sandwich of turkey and bacon, covered in Mornay sauce and baked or broiled until the bread is crisp and the sauce begins to brown.
Derby pie is a chocolate and walnut tart in a pie shell with a pastry dough crust. It is made with walnuts and chocolate chips. Imagine a pecan pie, only better!
A huge thank you to our friend Maggie and husband Michael for showing us around their beautiful city!
