Reviews of Louisville

What is not to love about the city you grew up in? This expanding city on the northern side of the state of Kentucky has a lot to offer travelers who want a taste of real southern hospitality. When speaking of tastes, most of the world can recognize Kentucky from the famous fast food chain, KFC. That is a funny conversation starter among most, however the more seasoned travelers might come looking for the bourbon trail. Whether you are into horse racing, or passing through on highway 95, Louisville, Ky has a lot of culture, history, and art that is truly rare and exciting. The bluegrass state's biggest city continues to bloom. You must come see what the old LOU, and the NEW LOU has to offer.
