					YOUR VISIT



Some people think of the Kentucky Derby, run the first Saturday in May at the legendary Churchill
Downs, or Louisville Slugger and the 60,000-pound baseball bat that leans against the Museum &
Factory when they think of Louisville. For others, it’s about the world-class museums, antique shopping,
historic neighborhoods, the scenic Ohio River or the outstanding arts community. Louisville is all of
these things and much more.



So many original adventures are possible in Louisville. With a variety of unique attractions, the city has
something to offer all of its visitors. We hope you enjoy this introduction to Louisville and that you’ll use
this Official Visitors Guide to help plan your visit – where to stay, what to do, where to shop, what
events to attend and where to eat. So what are you waiting for? Get planning!

GETTING TO KNOW LOUISVILLE

Welcome to Louisville, recently rated one of the
top 20 cities in America to live by Outside magazine.
And it’s a great place to visit, too! We’re a
community on the move, with major city amenities
like world-class performing arts, great sports and a
nationally acclaimed parks system. Yet Louisville
offers hospitality, warmth and smaller city advantages
like shorter commutes and lower cost of living. Whether
you’re planning a visit for fun or business, there’s so
much to see and do!

History

Louisville’s greatest natural resource, the Ohio River, is
the reason for the city’s existence. When early settlers
began the westward expansion, the Ohio River was the
primary water link between the West and Northeast.
A series of rapids along the route, however, forced
settlers to disembark and portage around the falls. This
stopping point became a strategic area for distribution
and eventually grew into the city of Louisville, which was
named in honor of King Louis XVI of France. Revolutionary
War hero George Rogers Clark founded Louisville in 1778.
Capt. Meriwether Lewis, leader of the Lewis & Clark
Expedition, met Capt. William Clark, brother of Col. George
Rogers Clark and co-commander of the Expedition, in Louisville
on October 14, 1803. William Clark and Meriwether Lewis stayed
in Louisville and Clarksville, Indiana for 12 days, setting sail with
the Corps of Discovery on this epic journey to explore the West
on October 26, 1803. Area attractions such as Churchill Downs,
the Falls of the Ohio State Park and Locust Grove Historic Home
have connections to these historically significant men.

Louisvillians

We’re sure you’ll find the more than 1 million Louisvillians in
the metropolitan area – Jefferson, Oldham and Bullitt
counties in Kentucky and Clark, Floyd, Harrison and Scott
counties in Southern Indiana – friendly and full of Southern
hospitality.

What IS Kentuckiana?

Whether you’re watching local TV in your hotel room or as
you’re traveling around town, you may notice a range of
businesses with “Kentuckiana” in their names. And you
may wonder about the word’s origin.

According to The Encyclopedia of Louisville, the word
Kentuckiana was coined sometime in the 1940s by the
Courier-Journal and Louisville Times newspapers in order
to briefly describe the Kentucky and Indiana areas.
Divided by the state line and the Ohio River Kentuckiana
encompasses counties in both states and, since at least
the 1980s, the term has come to include a larger area
on both sides of the river. Many residents commute from
Kentucky to Indiana and more so in reverse. Basic
economic and population changes affect both sides of
the river in a similar way and, hence for the region is a
useful tool for the locals.
Louisville’s Location

Louisville is located between St. Louis and Cincinnati
on the banks of the scenic 981-mil-long Ohio River.
Located at the northern edge of the South and the
southern edge of the Midwest, Louisville’s central
location puts it within a day’s drive of half the nation’s
population. At the intersection of three major
interstates – I-64, I-71 and I-65 – the city is directly
connected to such communities as: Indianapolis,
Cincinnati, Nashville, St. Louis, Chicago, Columbus,
Cleveland and Birmingham.

Airport Information

Louisville International Airport (SDF) is just 7 miles
(10 minutes) from downtown. Serviced by most
Major and regional airlines, the airport offers an
Average of 90 daily departures with non-stop service
to 23 destinations and convenient connections to cities
world-wide. For current flight information, visit
www.FlyLouisville.com.

Taxi fare from the airport to downtown is regulated
by Metro Government. As of September 2008, the rate
is $19.55. (The rate may fluctuate with rising gas prices.)
One to four people can ride at that rate, each additional
passenger is $3.

Getting Around

Louisville is an easy city to navigate. In addition to the
three major interstates – I-64, I-71 and I-65 – there are
two beltways that make a ring around the city. The locals
call I-264, the innermost beltway, the Watterson Expressway.
The Watterson connects all three interstates as well as the
airport and the Kentucky Exposition Center to the rest of
the community. You’ll also hear the stretch of I-264 West at
Dixie Highway (U.S. Highway 31W) called The Shawnee
Expressway. The outermost beltway, I-265, is known as
The Gene Snyder Freeway or simple “The Snyder.” It swings
wide around the city and connects the interstates.
Getting around downtown Louisville is easy because
the streets and blocks are laid out in a grid pattern.
Numbered streets run north/south; named streets east/
west. Most streets are one-way, but be sure to watch
for directional signs at each intersection. Main Street
is the dividing line for north/south; 1st Street divides
east/west.

Whether driving or walking downtown you’ll find way
finding signs that help you find landmarks like the
convention center, Slugger Field, Waterfront Park,
Fourth Street Live! and the Kentucky Center for the Arts,
districts like NuLu (East Main/Market), Fourth and Civic
as well as specific attractions within the districts.

For pedestrians near attractions, hotels and parking
facilities, there are nearly 30 information kiosks with a
map of downtown Louisville, a list of and directions to
major attractions and a list of monthly downtown
events.

Many major roads begin at or near the downtown area
and travel outward from the city like the spokes of a
wheel – such as Brownsboro Road, Frankfort Avenue,
Bardstown Road, Preston highway and Dixie Highway
(U.S. Highway 31W).

One unique traffic system you may encounter is the
reversible lanes on Baxter Avenue/Bardstown Road
(U.S. Highway 31E). During non-rush hours you’ll
find street parking on either side of Bardstown Road
with one lane of traffic in each direction; however,
as signage indicates, no parking is allowed on this
street during rush hour.

Taxi service is available 24 hours a day. For fast, easy
transportation in and around the Greater Louisville
area, nothing beats the Transit Authority of River City
(TARC), offering bus service throughout the day and
evening. TARC also operates Louisville’s historic
Toonerville II and Main Street Trolleys, which
provide transportation in the downtown area.
Downtown Parking
There are over 50,000 parking spaces in downtown
Louisville. No matter what your destination, you’ll
find convenient parking nearby. Choose from garages,
surface lots or one of the more than 5,000 on-street
spaces.

Parking meter rates range from .50 to .75 per hour. The
rate and time limitation is clearly displayed on each meter.
The meters accept nickels, dimes, quarters, dollar coins
and PARC “Smart Card,” which can be purchased at the
Visitors Center. Many parking meters are two-space meters.
Park your car so either the front or back bumper is in line with
the meter. Meters are enforced Monday through Saturday from
7AM to 6PM. This means free parking after 6PM and all day Sunday!
Different restrictions apply to different areas and are clearly marked
at the beginning of the restricted area. For more parking tips visit
www.louisvilleky.gov/PARC.

Free parking is available after 6PM and on weekends at Galleria
Garage (Fifth Street between Muhammad Ali and Liberty Streets).
For a map of garages and surface lots visit
www.ldmd.org/lca/parking-transport/.

Bike in Louisville
Louisville is a great city for biking, whether you want to bike
around downtown or bike to one of the city’s parks.
TARC’s Bikes-On-Board program is a great way to get around;
load your bike on a bike rack-equipped bus and you’ll be on
your way. It takes less than 10 seconds to load your bike. For
more information visit www.ridetarc.org. For maps of bike
routes by neighborhoods, visit www.bikelouisville.com.
Louisville is working hard to promote and expand options for
safe biking.

Art and function merge in downtown Louisville. Check out
the city’s urban art. More than 30 one-of-a-kind bike racks
and benches – made of stainless steel, glass, limestone, brick, bronze
and more – were commissioned by the Louisville Downtown
Management District. Don’t hesitate to use these artistic creations
by local artists. An additional 30 traditional bike racks are scattered
throughout the central business district.
Time Zone – EST
Louisville operates on Eastern Standard Time from the first
Sunday in November to the second Sunday in March and on
Eastern Daylight Saving Time the rest of the year.

KENTUCKY’S BOURBON TRADITION By Ron Cooper

Rich in history and enriched with only the very best ingre-
dients, Kentucky’s bourbon distillers put the welcome mat
out for tourists on a quest for a taste of the products so unique
to Kentucky. All of this is available on the Kentucky Bourbon
Trail, where you can easily make a whole day (or more) of it by
lifting a glass in tribute to the generations of expertise that
have made bourbon an institution associated worldwide with
Kentucky.

The Bourbon Trail, which covers 255 miles, is made up of two
regions: I-65 due south and I-64 east of the city. From I-65, you
can visit Jim Beam’s American Outpost, Historic Tom Moore
Distillery, Heaven Hill Distilleries Bourbon Heritage Center and
Maker’s Mark Distillery. From I-64, you’ll find Woodford Reserve
Distillery, Buffalo Trace Distillery, Wild Turkey Distillery and Four
Roses Distillery.
Judged the 2007 Whisky Distiller of the Year, Buffalo Trace
Distillery of Frankfort has many firsts to its credit. It was the
first distillery to ship whiskey down the Mississippi River and
the first to commercially market single-barrel bourbon.

Buffalo Trace’s tradition of fine bourbon making has been a
part of this site’s heritage for more than two centuries. In fact,
there has been a working distillery on the grounds since 1787.

The first modern distillery was built on this site in 1857 and was
the first to incorporate the use of steam power – a major advance
in producing high-quality bourbon. The Buffalo Trace Distillery
was later purchased by E.H. Taylor, Jr., one of Kentucky’s original
bourbon aristocrats. Taylor brought advancements to the facility
as well as to the entire whiskey industry. By 1886, the distillery
had introduced the nation’s first climate-controlled warehousing
 for aging whiskey and had earned a worldwide reputation.

Heaven Hill Distilleries Bourbon Heritage Center in Bardstown is
another must-stop along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. The center
is located within an hour’s drive of Louisville. A bonus is its
proximity to My Old Kentucky Home, worth a visit any time of the
year to those who crave hospitality Southern style and have an
appreciation for a bygone era.

Jim Beam’s American Outpost in Clermont near Bardstown keeps
hitting those milestones. In 2006, the distillery filled its ten
millionth barrel of Jim Beam Bourbon. At 213 years and counting,
Jim Beam Brands Co. has spanned seven generations of family
Members and master distillers.

To put the company’s heritage in perspective, George Washington
was alive when this world-famous bourbon was still in it’s infancy!

That kind of longevity is what the distilleries along the Kentucky
Bourbon Trail can rightfully and proudly claim.

Take Maker’s Mark Distillery in Loretto as an example. This
renowned bourbon distiller traces its lineage to 1779 when the
Samuels family began putting their magic touch on their own
Distinctive bourbon recipe.
Fast forward to 1980 when the Wall Street Journal ran a front-
page article on Maker’s Mark. This little-known distiller became
an overnight hit, exponentially increasing production and eventually
moving into the global marketplace.

Kentucky’s Bourbon Tradition Itinerary

Bourbon Country reconnects the city of Louisville’s ties to the state’s
bourbon heritage. The Urban Bourbon Trail includes the city’s
bourbon-inspired restaurants and bars, and is the ideal starting
and ending point of a bourbon-rich tourism experience.

The experience continues along the historic Kentucky Bourbon
Trail – at distilleries in central Kentucky, as well as the historic
towns, museums and restaurants that give Bourbon Country its
rich culture and distinction.

You can mix and match. Spend one, two or even three days
visiting all seven distilleries. Here we’ve divided them up by
their general locations.

Four more stops along the trail:

Four Roses Distillery of Lawrenceburg is situated
about 15 miles from the state capital of Frankfort. The
distillery was constructed in 1911 and features distinctive
Spanish Mission-style architecture rarely seen in Kentucky.
When you visit, ask about the legend of the Four Roses. It
has to do with how a distiller was smitten by a Southern
belle. (We don’t want to give away too much. . .)

Founded in 1897, the Tom Moore Distillery makes 1792
Ridgemont Reserve, named for the year Kentucky became a
state , Ten High, Kentucky Tavern and Very Old Barton. In
2008 the distillery became the eighth stop on the Kentucky
Bourbon Trail to offer tours (reservations are required). A
new visitors center is scheduled to open in October 2010.
Wild Turkey Distillery, also of Lawrenceburg, has quite a
story as to how the name “Wild Turkey” came about. We’ll
just tell you that it came about accidentally during a turkey
hunt in South Carolina. The hospitable people at the distillery
can fill in the blanks.

Woodford Reserve Distillery of Versailles is owned and operated
by Brown-Forman Distilleries. The distillery is a National Historic
Landmark located in the beautiful Bluegrass Region of Kentucky.

After experiencing one or all eight distilleries along the trail, you’ll
enjoy putting your new Bourbon expertise to use along Louisville’s
Urban Bourbon Trail – bars serving up 50 or more varieties of bourbon,
comprised of at least seven brands. You can sample many of these
distinctive tastes only in Louisville as many of the bars have their own
signature bourbons straight out of the distilleries.

Several of the bars are conveniently located in the downtown district,
easily accessible by trolley or on foot, with one just a short three-mile
drive by car/taxi.

new neighborhood of elegant mansions centered around St. James
and Belgravia courts.

SOUTH END/BEECHMONT

Louisville’s traditional South End neighborhood, Beechmont, has a
rich history. Developed around 1890, the neighborhood was
touted as “Beechmont the Beautiful.” “Beechmont the Peerless,”
and “The Grand Dame” of Louisville’s South End.

stop at the Frederick Law Olmsted-designed Iroquois Park. A
gathering spot for South End residents, the park also plays host to
concerts and musical theatre at the outdoor Iroquois Amphi-
theatre and sends 8,000 runners on their way as the official start of

young families have moved into this neighborhood of second-and-
third generation residents. Many of Beechmont’s new neighbors
come from all over the globe. With this mix of old and new,
Beechmont has become a multicultural neighborhood with a
rich and diverse culture in its schools, shops, churches and
restaurants. Iroquois Manor is also home to a number of
immigrant-owned businesses.

WEST END

Portland
Another historical neighborhood in Louisville is Portland
founded in 1811. Located west of downtown Louisville and
bordered on the north by the Ohio River, Portland (formerly
an independent city) was once a busy river town with its own
wharf. But by the 1830s, the shipping trade that had made
Portland prosperous had been shifted to Louisville when a
canal was built on the river.

The entire Portland Historic District is listed on the National
Register of Historical Places. One of the notable historic places
in the Wharf Park, the original site of the town of Portland.
Another is the Notre Dame du Port Church (now the Church
of Our Lady), which was completed in 1841 and is one of the
oldest Catholic churches in the city. The U.S. Marine Hospital,
which opened in 1852, is the only surviving structure by the
federal government for inland soldiers. The hospital is
considered to be the best example of antebellum era hospitals
in the United States.

Russell
Located west of downtown’s 9th Street and north of Muhammad
Ali Boulevard, the Russell neighborhood in the 1940s was the
city’s premier African-American neighborhood. Named for
nationally recognized black educator Harvey C. Russell, the
area became the home to many well-to-do African-Americans.
In its heyday Walnut Street (now known as Muhammad Ali
Boulevard) bustled with commerce, services and nightclubs
where local audiences heard national jazz musicians.
The area has grand Victorian and Italianate homes, churches
and public buildings that are of such architectural significance
that in 1980 most of the predominantly black neighborhood
was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Two of the
historic buildings are the Doerhoefer-Hampton House (1887) and
Western Colored Branch of the Louisville Free Public Library
(1908).

The Doerhoefer-Hampton House located at 422 W. Chestnut St.
is named in honor of Basil Doerhoefer and Sarah and G. Wade
Hampton and is used for community events. A German immigrant,
Doerhoefer was an early developer and landowner in Russell. The
Hamptons, an African-American couple, bought the house in 1944
and rented the upper floors to young men and women.

The Western Colored Branch of the Louisville Free Public Library (now
known as the Western Branch) was America’s first public library for
African-Americans. Located at 604 South 10th Street, this branch
officially opened in 1905, moving to its present location in 1908. It
is the home of the library’s African-American archives and resource
center.
