Bourbon Trail

In Kentucky they do trails a little differently.  This isn’t your typical hiking trail, this is a trail for your tastebuds, the Bourbon Trail! If you are a bourbon lover Louisville is the town for you! With 6 distilleries within the city, you are sure to find your favorite bourbon to sip on straight or mix into your favorite cocktail! You can stick to the local distilleries or you can take advantage of your days off to travel across the state of Kentucky collecting stamps for every distillery on the Bourbon Trail Passport (no judgement here)! Plan your bourbon trail experience here

Churchill Downs & Kentucky Derby Museum

Louisville, Ky is home to Churchill Downs and the oldest running sporting event in America, the Kentucky Derby!  Although derby day is the biggest event held here, it’s not the only reason to visit! You can continue to catch horse racing throughout the year with  the next events starting in September!

While you are there stop in to the Kentucky Derby Museum right next door. You can enjoy two floors of exhibits celebrating all things Kentucky Derby, a walking tour of the racetrack, breakfast or lunch at the cafe, or a mint julep at the bar!

Bernheim Forest

Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest is one the more unique outdoor activities you can enjoy and it is only 30 mins from Louisville!  For their 90th anniversary they welcomed a Danish artist, Thomas Dambo, to construct 3 giant sculptures from the region’s recycled wood. The giants are Mama Loumari, Little Nis, and Little Elina. Mama Loumari also has a third baby giant living in her belly! They recommend hiking the giant trail earlier in the morning or after 3 pm to avoid large crowds and get the most one on one time with these beautiful giants! And this is only one of the many trails available to explore at Berheim, be sure to check out their website to see upcoming events and programs!
