About Angela A
Lives in Louisville, Kentucky
Since Oct 2012
I love to travel. I am not happy unless I am planning a new adventure, returning to a beloved city, or blazing a trail to somewhere I have never been before. My favorite places in the world are London, New Orleans, Disneyland, and Salem, Massachusetts. I also love to write about everything and anything to do with travel. I have penned travel guides for TripAdvisor on Jamaica, Nassau, Charleston, Savannah, Nashville, Punta Cana, Kissimmee, San Juan, Panama City Beach, Louisville, Cincinnati, Key Largo, Biloxi, Tampa, Cleveland, Clearwater, Branson, Pigeon Forge, and Phoenix.

The Louisville Slugger Museum is a unique, one-of-a-kind experience that every visitor to Louisville simply must have! As well as touring the factory and viewing plenty of fun, interactive exhibits, where else do you have the chance for a photo next to the world's largest baseball bat?!
The Kentucky Derby Museum is yet another of Louisville's unique museums that you will not find anywhere else on earth! If that's not enough to add it to your list, this museum promises fun for the entire family, with plenty of exhibits focusing on horse racing, including a simulated horse race.
The Frazier History Museum puts visitors face-to-face with historical people, artifacts, and stories. This is an experience that the entire family will enjoy together, with exhibits that captivate the imaginations of all ages, and daily interpretations in which talented actors literally bring history to life before your eyes.
The 21c Museum Hotel houses a wonderfully creative, contemporary gallery, that is North America's first space devoted entirely to art of the 21st century. Free rotating exhibits are on display here 24/7, featuring many thought-provoking pieces.
The Kentucky Science Center is filled with interactive exhibits that really engage curious minds of all ages. While some visitors feel it is a lot more educational than fun, kids really do love this place, and adults may immerse themselves in the joy of science and industry.
The Muhammad Ali Center is a tribute to the boxing legend, who also just happens to be a native of Louisville, Kentucky! This museum offers plenty of inspiring exhibits, as well as incorporating Ali's core principles.
Locust Grove is a National Historic Landmark in East Louisville, situated on 55 acres of farmland. This 18th-century Georgian mansion interprets what life may have been like during that era, and is a must-visit for all history buffs.
The Louisville Mega Cavern is at the top of the list for things that you must experience in Louisville! A tram transports visitors below ground through the miles of tunnels that run beneath Louisville, and the onsite museum offers insight on geology, mining, recycling, and the cavern's intended part during the Cold War.
The Waverly Hills Sanatorium is a property that has housed everything from a children's hospital to a tuberculosis treatment center, and is full of history, and, according to many, restless spirits! Guided tours, overnight visits, and special events are hosted at this world famous, historical attraction. Whether you visit for historical significance, or to see if there's any truth in the tales of countless 'haunted-style' television programs, this is a truly one-of-a-kind attraction. Do you dare?
The Jim Bean American Stillhouse is located just a few miles south of Louisville, in the Bourbon capital of the world! For those curious to see just what goes into this famous beverage, look no further.
