Anyone who visits Louisville knows that they have to checkout Churchill Downs - home to the Kentucky Derby - and the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. But what other hotspots must you see? In Old Louisville, you can drive through the historic neighborhood and take a chance to appreciate the area's unique architecture. Take your car over to the Mint Julep Tours, where can get a great taste of some local spirits.
You might want to assign a designated driver for your Louisville rental car if you plan to make a trip over to the Maker's Mark Distillery. The grounds are the only distillery in that country that doubles as a National Historic Landmark and you can enjoy free tours of the facility year-round. Other distilleries in the area include Heaven Hill and Wild Turkey. For a more laid-back afternoon, head to the Cathedral of the Assumption, one of the oldest in the country. A cruise down Bardstown Road in the Highlands neighborhood is definitely in order if you want to dine in some of Louisville's finest restaurants and bars.
