Go See, Go Do in Louisville!
For over a 100 years, Churchill Downs has been home to Louisville horse racing and the famous Kentucky Derby. The rich history is evident upon entering the gates of the home of the longest continually running sporting event in America. Enjoy an afternoon touring the onsite Derby museum, wagering on a few ponies or tour around the many layers of the venue. Churchill Downs is a great place to spend a beautiful spring, summer or fall afternoon. Make sure to check the schedule before venturing down to the downs because racing doesn’t happen every day. The Museum also doubles as an event venue and don’t forget Wagner’s on the back side of the track for a meal with a side of nostalgia.
Louisville Slugger Field
Nestled along the Ohio river, Louisville Slugger Field is home to the Louisville Bats. Enjoy a beautiful Spring or Summer day while taking in a baseball game. There are $1 beer and hot dog nights throughout the season and the venue is also perfect for birthday parties, group outings or any other special event. If you are planning to attend Thunder over Louisville, you can get tickets to the Bats game that day and appreciate the fireworks (and clean bathrooms) that evening! Don’t forget Against the Grain Brewery is located right on Main Street at the corner of the stadium is you are still hungry after the game.
