Greater Louisville Trip Planner
Welcome to Greater Louisville!
Nestled against Indiana's southern border, the Greater Louisville area is renowned for its world-famous horse race, the Kentucky Derby, and the two-week-long pre-race excitement of the Kentucky Derby Festival. But with so many museums, cultural venues, sporting events and recreational facilities, Greater Louisville offers much more than horse racing. From concerts and plays at Kentucky Center for the Arts to educational exhibits at the Frazier International History Museum and the Thomas Edison House, Louisville is rife with possibilities. New Haven is home to the Kentucky Railway Museum, where visitors can browse railroad exhibits and take a 22-mi (35-km) train ride through the scenic Rolling Fork River Valley on a restored passenger train. The Bernheim Arboretum in Clermont features picturesque flower gardens, a visitor center and 30 mi (48 km) of hiking trails. Based out of Prospect, Classic Biplane Tours offers visitors the chance to tour Louisville from the air aboard a classic biplane that recalls the Golden Era of aviation.
