Louisville is most known for being the home of the Kentucky Derby, a horse race held every year. From tours to art museums, there are plenty of places to visit and things to do in Louisville. In fact, one of its top attractions is the Kentucky Derby Museum, which includes among its exhibits an interactive horse race for kids and adults alike. Baseball fans will love the Louisville Slugger Museum, and even those who do not like the sport but love quirky attractions will get a kick out of the giant baseball bat in front of the establishment. Boxing fans, meanwhile, should not miss out on visiting Muhammad Ali Center to learn more about the legend. These attractions barely scratch the surface of what you can see and do in the city, so be sure to book one of these cabins in Louisville, Kentucky, and treat yourself to a fun and memorable holiday exploring its sights.
