While you may be bummed to not be traveling over Spring Break, you shouldn’t be because Louisville is full of fun things to do! We’ve compiled a list of places to visit in the ‘Ville that’ll keep you busy all week long.
1. We’re quickly approaching the Derby Festival in Louisville, so what better way to kick that off than with a trip to the Kentucky Derby Museum. Enjoy interactive exhibits, an epic film, and guided track tour. Plus kids under 5 years of age are free!
2. The Louisville Parks and Recreation system manages 120 parks and six parkways on more than 13,000 acres of land all over the city. They even have a great search engine to find your perfect park. And if you’re looking for even greater outdoor time, check out Jefferson Memorial Forest - the nation’s largest municipally-owned urban forest.
3. Looking for something on the wild side? Head to the Louisville Zoo, which is open daily with over 1,200 animals to view. Their Wild Lights event is on-going through spring and full of beautiful handcrafted, LED lit lanterns and entertaining shows.
4. Take me out to the ballgame… The Louisville Bats are returning to play this April. Join them for a season opener the first week of April. If soccer is more your thing, head to the Louisville City opener. Tickets for either can be under $20 per person and provide hours of entertainment!
5. If you like a little bit of everything, check out the Frazier History Museum. They have a variety of exhibitions currently like Kentucky Rivalries (do you “bleed” blue or red?), Lewis and Clark, and even bourbon barrel art. Kiddos under 4 years of age are free!
6. All aboard! Throughout the warmer months, the Belle of Louisville is offering cruises themed to hometown music. Enjoy 90 minute tours on the water with the whole fam. Kids under 4 years of age are free!
