Lov­ing Louisville

Won­der what ap­peal Louisville can hold for the off-sea­son trav­eler? If you’re not keen on deal­ing with Derby crowds, con­sider th­ese other at­trac­tions.

• Reser­va­tions. Mar­sha de­scribes the Louisville restau­rant scene as “hop­ping,” and that’s not just a ref­er­ence to craft beer. Guests can save them­selves a spot—or of­ten even drop in—to ex­pe­ri­ence a wide va­ri­ety of cuisines and am­bi­ences. One un­miss­able lo­cal din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in par­tic­u­lar is to find one­self some “real” Ken­tucky fried chicken: Mar­sha rec­om­mends vis­it­ing Equus, where the chicken is served up with kale greens and mashed pota­toes.

• Ex­plo­rations. Dur­ing nice weather, Louisville of­fers a va­ri­ety of lovely parks for en­joy­ing the scenery. When ven­tur­ing in­doors, vis­i­tors can tour the Louisville Slug­ger Museum and the Muham­mad Ali Museum—re­minders of the other di­verse and fas­ci­nat­ing ways Louisville has con­trib­uted to Amer­i­can cul­ture at large.

• Li­ba­tions. Louisville boasts four dis­til­leries’ worth of bour­bon cul­ture, with nearby Bard­stown and Frank­fort adding more op­tions for the clas­sic Amer­i­can spirit en­thu­si­ast. Guests at Wood­haven can even take a tour that picks them up di­rectly from the Inn and takes them around town and on the Bour­bon Trail.
