Kentucky’s largest city, Louisville, is best known as the home of the Kentucky Derby.
Take a break from the city and head to Louisville Mega Cavern and Nature & Wildlife Tours. You'll explore and learn at Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory and Kentucky Derby Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Louisville: Cincinnati (Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption & Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum), Maker's Mark (in Loretto) and Frankfort (Kentucky Vietnam Veterans Memorial & Buffalo Trace Distillery). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Churchill Downs, sample the fine beverages at Evan Williams Bourbon Experience, see the interesting displays at Conrad-Caldwell House Museum (Conrad's Castle), and snap pictures at The Big Four Bridge.

To find other places to visit, ratings, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Louisville day trip planner .

In September, daily temperatures in Louisville can reach 82°F, while at night they dip to 61°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
