Kentucky’s largest city, Louisville, is best known as the home of the Kentucky Derby.
Get some historical perspective at Louisville Mega Cavern and Churchill Downs. Take a break from the city and head to Mammoth Cave and Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Louisville: Jim Beam American Stillhouse (in Clermont), Maker's Mark (in Loretto) and Ark Encounter (in Williamstown). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Kentucky Derby Museum, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Buffalo Trace Distillery, bet on a winner at Keeneland, and identify plant and animal life at Salato Wildlife Education Center.
