Thunder over Louisville
What better way to spend an evening under the stars along the waterfront than by watching the largest annual fireworks show in North America! This event happens every year in April and kicks off the Kentucky Derby Festival. Head over to the Chow Wagon for some incredible food!

In the city of Louisville, May is considered the most exciting and fun-filled two weeks of the entire year! From parades to galas to marathon races, there is so much more than just horse racing to keep you busy until the main event.
Location, Location, Location.
When it comes to traveling, you’re in the perfect location! Anyone can easily visit Louisville then head to another hot spot. The following big cities are just a drive away: Cincinnati, Nashville, Indianapolis, St Louis, Nashville, Chicago, and Atlanta!
Although you may have trouble deciding where to venture out for dinner, you won’t be disappointed when it comes to the variety of places you’ll have to choose from! You name the type of food you want and I can guarantee there is some place in Louisville that will be perfect. Skip the chain restaurants and shoot for somewhere local! Some of my personal favorites are Hammerheads, Against the Grain, Mojitos, Doc Crows, Shack in the Back BBQ, and Hilltop Tavern!
There is a vibrant arts and music scene here in Louisville! There is an abundance of opportunities to dive in to theater, concerts, art galleries, and museums! Forecastle and Louder than Life are just two of many popular music festivals that one can attend during the year. There is no doubt in my mind that there will be much downtime while here in Louisville!
