The best way to get a feel for a city is to wander around the central district and explore their historic downtown if they have one. Luckily, Louisville does, and it is adorable. In the summer months, they use the Steinbaugh Pavilion as a concert venue and, in the winter when it is too cold to have live music, they set up an ice skating rink. They also have the oldest operating tavern in the state. Catch up on your favorite book, grab a bite to eat at any number of restaurants, or just relax and sip a pint while the city whirls around you.
One of the many benefits of living in an acclaimed town like Louisville is all the fun they try to have on a citywide scale. The Downtown Street Faire is just one example, but it is a great one. Every year they have live music, delicious local food, cold drinks, children’s activities, arts, and crafts for all to enjoy. It is a great way to meet your neighbors and enjoy the city in a festive way. You can get a taste of the town, all in the span of one city block, and the best part is it is free to enter.
