Places to go, people to see, things to do.
I ran across this list of things that make Louisville a great place to visit. But I say this list makes Louisville a great place to live. It's not all that Louisville has to offer, but it's certainly a good start.
You can read the full article at thoughtcatalog.com.
Some things on the list include Kentucky's own hot brown, Hillbilly Tea and the haunted Waverly Place (Halloween is just a couple months away). If you're into sampling the brown water, sign up for the Urban Bourbon Trail.
If your favorite passtime is the same as America's, pair up a day at the Louisville Slugger Museum with a Riverbats game.
In the mood for some barbeque?
Try Doc Crow's for some yummy barbeque. Not only is Doc Crow's convenient to the Yum! Center and everything downtown Louisville has to offer, it's also super delicious.
The servers look like they must grow and maintain a beard for their employment but don't let the hipster look get in the way of your taste buds. My favorite - the brisket taco. It's lunch time and I'm having visions of that goodness. Pair it with a Lexington-brewed West 6th and you've got a Louisville Slugger homerun of a meal.
Schedule a State Fair Night
If you call Kentucky home, you know the state fair is a good place to take the kids, experience ride-induced vertigo and nosh on some unhealthy food.
The Kentucky State Fair starts on Aug. 14 and lasts until Sun., Aug. 24. From concerts to petting zoos, the State Fair gives plenty of opportunity to get into what you enjoy.
The fair is held at the Kentucky Exposition Center near the recently reopened Kentucky Kingdom. You can get discount tickets up until August 13.
