Louisville is many things - original, eclectic, dynamic, and energetic. Within its boundaries you'll find sports, history, nature, art, music, amazing food and lodging that take overnight stays and vacations to the next level.
Louisville is the largest city in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. It was founded in 1778 by George Rogers Clark and is named after King Louis XVI of France, making Louisville one of the oldest cities west of the Appalachian Mountains. Situated on the Ohio River the city is known as the home of the Kentucky Derby, the Urban Bourbon Trail, Muhammad Ali, Louisville Slugger and Louisville's historic "Whiskey Row".
The Muhammad Ali Center, near Museum Row in Louisville, is a museum and cultural center that honours the Louisville native, internationally-known, world-champion heavyweight boxer and his values.
For something quintessentially American visit Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, home of the World’s Biggest Baseball Bat. Experience history-in-the-making as you stroll through the factory where world famous Louisville Slugger baseball bats, the official bat of Major League baseball, are made. All these attractions are located a short walk from each other, so easily accessible.
