Especially relevant with the prestigious Kentucky Derby and numbers of races run here all year round at impressive Churchill Downs.
With a history steeped in the smooth, amber liquid of bourbon and its friend the power-packed moonshine. This great city has many exciting stories of infamous gangsters and outlawed bootleggers. Then of course the native sporting legends Muhammad Ali and the Louisville Sluggers, add to its appeal. There’s also an amazing amount of foodie delights to explore and devour too.
