Listen to our Destination Spotlight on Louisville

Doug Bennett, Executive Director
Louisville, KY

Louisville — aka “Derby City” or “Bourbon City” or “The 502” and some others is located in the 15th State in our nation — Kentucky.  It’s the State’s largest city, and if you haven’t visited Louisville, you’ve missed out on a terrific American destination and need to go.  Certainly famed Churchill Downs is perhaps the best known attraction, but there’s also the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, Muhammad Ali Center, Louisville Mega Cavern, Kentucky Derby Museum, Louisville Zoo, Frazier History Museum and others.  Louisville is also home to the Kentucky State Fair, Louisville University and the Urban Bourbon Experience & Trail.  If you’re seeking a great weekend getaway location, a place to vacation this Summer of Fall, or simply something different — Louisville has you covered!
