show info

Kentucky might not be the first place you think of when conjuring up images of indie music, gourmet food, and craft alcohol production, or maybe you live here and you know better. Home to the famous Kentucky Derby and more distilleries than you can count, Louisville is a city rising in the ranks among America’s most underrated-but-highly desirable places to live. As of 2010, the population was 750,000 and growing strong; a good indicator that it won’t be undiscovered for long.

Getting Around in Louisville, KY

Getting around a city of this size can be daunting, but luckily there are great public transit options and well preserved highways to get you where you need to go. The TARC is the local bus line that shuttles people around the main areas of the city, and some extended service to the suburbs, and the main highways, known as the Watterson, can get you in or out of downtown in a pinch. The streets are also laid out in a grid pattern in the central part of town and a wheel and spoke layout in the outskirts, making navigation much easier.

Kentucky Bourbon

<p>What&Otilde;s the one thing you think of when someone says Louisville to you? I can promise it&Otilde;s either Slugger, Kentucky Derby, or whiskey, and you&Otilde;d be right on all accounts - particularly the whiskey section of that answer. One-third of all bourbon whiskey comes from this southern town, and there are a number of growing private distilleries that are starting to challenge some of the big boys in the high end whiskey market. Keep your eyes on the start-ups here (if you can keep your eyes open at all after three or four drinks of the hard stuff), because in a few years they will have national distribution and you can tell all your friends, &Ograve;I knew them when&Eacute;&Oacute;</p>

The Kentucky Derby

<p>The other side of this historic town that resonates with people everywhere, is the one, the only, Kentucky Derby. This two week long festival is one of the nations larges civic events, and holds not only the most famous American horse race, but also one of the largest air shows and fireworks displays in the country. Thunder over Louisville draws 800,000 people every year for a day filled with skydivers, stunt planes, street food and what is arguably the worlds largest fireworks display set to music (sometimes lasting up to 30 minutes). How can you say no to that?</p>

Bike through Louisville

<p>Love to be on two wheels? If so, this is the place for you. You can take any number of recreational trails throughout the cities numerous green spaces and parks, or ride around the city in the designated bike lanes to enjoy the bustle of this gateway to the south. If you&Otilde;re feeling a little more adventurous, they have extreme sports at the Louisville extreme park, and you can drop in on a 24 foot full pipe with your BMX or whatever wheels suit you. Whatever your fever, there&Otilde;s plenty of wide open space to enjoy it and likeminded individuals to take you up on those long rides across town or down the scenic waterfront.</p>
