Louisville Holidays Overview


Louisville might be famous all over the world because its prodigal son Muhammad Ali, but it is also known to be the home of baseball and home to the iconic Kentucky Derby. The city is located to the south of Indiana and is known to attract millions of visitors with its million dollar derby and rich cosmopolitan attractions. The history of Louisville revolves around its French settlers who came from New Orleans. The city has always been a major rival to Cincinnati and as a result, despite being pro-Union it promoted itself only after the Civil War.

Modern day Louisville is famous as a lively city that is brimming with arts and culture, gorgeous festivals, beautiful public parks, excellent recreation facilities and a range of bars, pubs, nightclubs and restaurants. Tourists can also enjoy a range of activities such as strolling through the Central park, people watching in the historical district, biking, hiking, checking out attractions such as the Louisville Slugger Museum and Kentucky Derby Museum and exploring the lives of the various sporting legends of Kentucky.
