If you’re familiar with The Kentucky Derby, Louisville Sluggers and whisky, you’ve got the basics of Louisville covered. Churchill Downs is home to the most famous horse race in the world, held the first Saturday in May every year. The city is home to the largest manufacturer of baseball bats and gloves in the nation. And, nearly one-third of the nation’s bourbon whisky comes from Louisville. But travellers booking flights to Louisville will find there is more to this city than thoroughbreds, Babe Ruth and whisky sours.
Louisville was at the forefront of many major historical inventions including the first public viewing of Thomas Edison’s light bulb, the first human hand transplant, and the first self-contained artificial heart transplant. Among the other reasons tourists book Louisville flights include the American Printing House for the Blind; the J.B. Speed Art Museum; the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts; and the Muhammad Ali Center, a museum and cultural-educational centre dedicated to the boxing champion and Louisville native.
If you’re lucky enough to hold a ticket to The Kentucky Derby, book Louisville flights and accommodation in advance. The city is packed with people wearing big hats, boasting big personalities and paying big prices. Otherwise, good deals on flights to Louisville are easy to find and visitors can enjoy a tour of Churchill Downs, honour the Babe and sip a whisky on the rocks during the off-season.
Louisville’s weather is temperate and seasonal. Summers (late May to late September) are hot with cool evenings so bring along a light jacket or coat. March to September are the wettest seasons, although rainfall is fairly constant all year round, and snow usually falls from December to February, allowing for winter sports fun. Winter temperatures range from -2 to +6 degrees and in the summer they vary between 18 and 30 degrees.
Louisville is a very easy city to get into and around. There are great roads and train lines reaching into the city, as well as an international airport. Within the city, take one of the efficient public buses. Many of the hotels have their own free shuttle service, so be sure to find out what your accommodation offers. Taxis are easy to catch and there are many well-marked bike lanes in the centre of town.
