Derby City

Kentucky’s largest city, Louisville, is best known as the home of the Kentucky Derby.
Visit Conrad-Caldwell House Museum (Conrad's Castle) and Lincoln Homestead State Park for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Louisville: Maker's Mark (in Loretto), Bardstown (Willett Distilling Company & Barton 1792 Distillery) and Huber's Orchard & Winery (in Starlight). There's still lots to do: Head underground at Louisville Mega Cavern, indulge in some personalized pampering at Serenity Spa, and take in a show at Abbey Road On The River.

For traveler tips and other tourist information, go to the Louisville visit planner.
