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.

Points of Interest & Landmarks
Wild Eggs serves up some of the best breakfast, brunch, and lunch in all of Louisville. Boasting a menu full of favorites like crepes, omelets, muffins, waffles, and a giant variety of egg dishes, there's no better start to the day (and you must eat here at least twice while in town!)
The Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory is a one-of-a-kind experience that is completely unique to Louisville. Tour the factory, check out the exhibits, and pose with the world's largest bat!
The Kentucky Science Center offers all manner of hands-on exploration that is fun for any age! Conduct experiments, build machines, and race friends or family members across its variety of interactive exhibits and games. What it lacks in size, it surely makes up for in entertainment!
The Frazier History Museum houses an absolutely fascinating collection of exhibits, artifacts, and galleries. It is easy to step back in time here as you listen to personal accounts, engage in interactive exhibits, and view the massive collection of armory.
The Old Spaghetti Factory offers a very unique dining atmosphere, and when paired with reasonably priced Italian fare, makes for a great lunch choice. Also, all entrees come with bread, soup or salad, and ice cream — meaning you're sure to leave both full and content.
Louisville's Waterfront Park is a fantastic place to experience when visiting Louisville. Right on the banks of the Ohio River, enjoy the cool river breeze as you explore the multitude of paved pathways, watch the kids try out the playground, or take in one of many events held regularly on the waterfront.
The Big Four Bridge is located in downtown Louisville, and connects Louisville's waterfront to Jeffersonville, Indiana. Locals and visitors alike love to amble over this pedestrian bridge to say they've done it!
The 21c Museum is housed within this creative hotel, conveniently located in downtown Louisville. Rotating exhibits showcase contemporary art here in a very thought-provoking setting, and while the space is small, it's still a definite must-see.
The Louisville Free Public Library is located close to dozens of other downtown attractions, hotels, and restaurants, making it a convenient place to pop into for a minute or two. While the building itself is beautiful and worth a visit alone, interesting special exhibits are also held here on a regular basis, and there are free PC terminals should you need to check your emails.
Mike Linnig's is a family-owned, seafood restaurant that is surely one of Louisville's favorites! Locals flock here on the weekends, in particular for the fantastic drinks and entertainment, and anytime for the legendary fish sandwich.
Fourth Street Live! is Louisville's main entertainment complex, and it is conveniently located right in bustling downtown. With shops, restaurants, and nightclubs, this open-air district offers plenty of forms of entertainment to suit all tastes. Browse the various options available before settling on somewhere.
Waverly Hills is a former sanatorium that closed its doors in the 1960s, and was everything from a children's hospital to a tuberculosis treatment center during its operation. An after-dark tour or an overnight visit of this supposedly haunted spot is one of the most unique experiences you can have in Louisville — though you might want to leave scaredy-cats at the hotel!
