How to Spend 3 Days

Bourbon distilleries, horse racing, Museum Row, Whiskey Row, Churchill Downs, amazing food - this Louisville weekend trip itinerary has it all!

Many of our favorite places to stay in Louisville are in Victorian homes in historic Old Louisville. This is a vacation rental we love right off of Central Park!

Where to Stay in Louisville

A Hot Brown is a warm, baked open face sandwich consisting of a piece of bread topped with with turkey, tomato bacon, and creamy, bubbly, cheesy Mornay sauce.

The ornate Victorian mansions, flickering gas lamps, tree-covered streets, flickering gas lamps, and fountains of Belgravia Court and St. James Court are picture-perfect.

Explore Old Louisville

This cozy brewery, located in a converted Victorian, reflects the neighborhood perfectly: worn, tall dark wooden booths and patchy layered walls.

Two things Louisville loves – theater and bourbon – merge at another one of the distilleries in downtown Louisville!

Evan Williams Bourbon Experience

We recommend the Mama’s Boy, which pairs buttermilk chicken with roasted jalapeños, pimento cheese, crunchy pickles, and a fried green tomato.

Breakfast at Biscuit Belly

It’s hard to fit multiple bourbon distilleries into a single day (much unlike the distilleries in Louisville) because they’re all pretty spread out. So, limit yourself to two: we strongly recommend Woodford Reserve and Maker’s Mark.
