Getting Around

Learn a bunch about things to do at the Official Louisville Tourism website (www.gotoLouisville.com). Maps were downloaded from the www.gotoLouisville.com website for the Trolley, which runs a loop around downtown serving much of the restaurant and bar area.  

Jan and Kim’s Must See Must Do Places

Lynn's Paradise Café

Lynn's Paradise Café on Baxter Avenue is a great place for hearty breakfast and lunch and an entertaining visual experience as well (www.lynnsparadisecafe.com).

Jack Fry's

Jack Fry's (www.jackfrys.com) is Jan's favorite fine dining spot. Awesome martinis. Located on Bardstown Road.

Hadley Pottery and Louisville Stoneware

Hadley Pottery (hadleypottery.com) and Louisville Stoneware (www.louisvillestoneware.com) are highly regarded by collectors around the world.

Louisville's Urban Bourbon Trail

Louisville’s Urban Bourbon Trail is unique way to experience KY’s signature beverage. Pick up a passport a number of different ways. Visit selected establishments that are on the trail to collect stamps on your passport and have an excuse to sample yet one more kind bourbon. Learn more at www.bourboncountry.com/urban-bourbon/.

Bardstown Road & Frankford Avenue

Bardstown Road and Frankfort Avenue are two roads that radiate from the downtown area, east of downtown Louisville. Both have fun restaurants and bars that can provide an evening of exploring.

Bernheim Forest

Bernheim Forest is about 45 minutes south of Louisville and offers a wonderful drive through arboretum as well as hiking trails. Jim Beam Distillery is nearby, and Bardstown, Kentucky is just down the road, past Rooster Run and Henpeck (real names of “towns”).


Bardstown, KY is recognized as one of the 100 Best Small Towns in America, the second oldest city in KY, and home to Federal Hill, inspiration for “My Old Kentucky Home.” Include Bardstown for a shopping and eating spot on a tour of the countryside and bourbon distilleries. Find more at www.visitbardstown.com.

Horsefarm Driving Tour

Horsefarm Driving Tour. One route can be found at http://www.visitlex.com/idea/dreamer.php based on the movie, “Dreamer” (available on Netflix and a few other places). This route starts about an hour east of Louisville, near Versailles Kentucky and deserves a day to investigate. But even a half day is enough to feel the charm of the horse farm tradition in the Bluegrass. Wallace Station, Versailles, KY, is a great place to stop for lunch (and number 21 on the Dreamer). It’s located just east of Midway Rd (Rt 62) on Old Frankfort Pike (Rt. 1681). Watch the Dreamer and take a drive into another world.
