When are you traveling and with whom, and what are yuor interests...dining, nightlife, art, history, sports, outdoors, etc. ?
I will be there on April 9 and 10.
So far I have seen that I should do the Louisville Slugger Museum and The Derby Museum. I was just seeing if there is anything else that is a MUST do/see. I am also looking for some of their best restaurants to try. Thanks for your help!
Try a City Taste Tour.
We love Lilly's on Bardstown Rd. for something special. If you like funky, then you will like Lynn's Paradise Cafe off Baxter, I believe. Off ST. Matthews is the only coal-fired pizza in the country--Coals'. It is anthracite- (clean coal) fired and amazing! We also like several of the restaurants on Bardstown Rd, such as the BBC Brewing Company.
Also, if you are downtown near the Slugger Museum, you may want to visit the Frazier International History Museum and the glass factory.
There are some lovely antique shops in the historic downtown area, and if your interest goes in this direction, this would be a very "Kentucky" way to spend an afternoon.
Lunch or breakfast at Wagner's Pharmacy (across the street from Churchill Downs) could be combined with your visit to The Derby Museum
Louisville has so many great local dining spots, it's hard to give only a few options. ....Here are some of my picks:
Jack Fry's (Vintage, intimate)
Captain's Quarters (for the scenic drive out River Road & the deck if the weather is nice)
The Sunday Brunch buffet at The Oakroom in The Seelbach Hotel
Ghyslain on Market St.
The Irish Rover on Frankfort Ave. (best fish & chips and a pint)
Cumberland Brewery on Bardstown Road (to sample local brews & great pub grub)
