Derby City
Kentucky’s largest city, Louisville, is best known as the home of the Kentucky Derby. The city's location means that it's strongly influenced by both Southern and Midwestern culture, a blend evident in the city’s cuisine, cultural scene, and climate. Louisville is one of the oldest cities west of the Appalachian Mountains. Things to do on a vacation to Louisville include visiting the Old Louisville neighborhood, which boasts an impressive collection of Victorian homes and buildings. The striking waterfront skyline showcases the city’s thriving economy. Louisville is also home to a vibrant indie music and art scene, as well as plenty of quirky independently owned restaurants, shops, and cafes. As the city is a major center of the American whisky industry, local bourbon is ubiquitous in both upscale bars and blue-collar venues. With the Inspirock international travel planner, Louisville and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
