Local Area Overview
The Louisville Slugger Museum - We all remember our first baseball bat. Kids today will remember modernized chrome-aluminum-space bats while those of us born before 1990 fondly recall the old, wooden Louisville Sluggers of yesteryear. But regardless of your generation, the Louisville Slugger museum is a great place to catch up on your baseball history, and for those modern era ballplayers, an opportunity to see a real baseball bat (wink).
E.P. Sawyer State Park - 369 acres of park should be enough park for nearly everyone. EP Sawyer offers everything from an Olympic sized pool to lighted tennis courts, soccer fields, two nature and fitness trails, and even a BMX track. So after hours of tennis and soccer you can literally start and finish a decathlon before going back to play tennis and soccer under the lights. What a perfectly relaxing day.
University of Louisville - Contrary to popular belief, the Rick Pitino-lead Louisville basketball team isn’t the only thing that makes the college famous. Did you know that the university is actually the oldest west of the Allegheny’s? That makes it historic, and historic places are always worth a drive by, at least. Plus, Louisville has an inspiring motto—“It’s Happening Here”. You have to love the positivity.
Old Louisville - Just like it sounds, Old Louisville is old, which makes it cooler than new Louisville. Full of character, great architecture, and artsy people, it’s just the place to feel cultured within the fine metropolitan area. Enjoy a meal or a cup of coffee at a fine, local establishment; or drive through the area on your way to a chain restaurant if you have no soul.
