"If you come to Louisville you..." Louisville Favorite Tip by JuliaL
Louisville General: 15 reviews and 22 photos
Favorite thing: If you come to Louisville you definitely must visit Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. Besides watching the horses run (and hopefully winning some money!) you can visit the Kentucky Derby Museum.
Fondest memory: Louisville is steeped in history. It became a city in 1798, and is considered the 'Gateway to the West'. Louisville is nestled in the Ohio Valley on the banks of the Ohio River. The one thing I miss about Louisville when I'm away is it's lush, green countryside.
