Louisville Hotels

Louisville is the largest city in the state of Kentucky, a sprawling urban metropolis full of flashy high rises, stellar museums, and gorgeous heritage sites. Louisville is a dream for fanatics of independent art, music, and shops - boasting a booming indie scene that overflows with electrifying performance venues and off-beat boutiques. There’s also plenty of family-friendly fun here too, from spacious tree-stippled parks to the city zoo.

Things to see

Begin your vibrant Louisville morning by soaking up some of this city’s cool culture and riveting heritage. Head to the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, a tongue-in-cheek specialty museum which traces the history of the Louisville’s baseball bat production. While it sounds eccentric, the museum - set in the original red-brick factory house - offers a valuable glimpse into Louisville’s industrial heritage. For a more conventional museum experience, head to the Frazier History Museum, a large Smithsonian-affiliated center that showcases a fascinating permanent display of armory. See everything from old-world Medieval weapons to Teddy Roosevelt’s hunting rifle. As the day rolls on, architecture appreciators should visit the Conrad-Caldwell House - a grand white-stone Victorian mansion - and take a tour of its period furnished interiors. Those traveling with kids, meanwhile, will want to visit Louisville Zoo, where you can see sleek Sumatran tigers, great black gorillas, and spooky vampire bats.
