Weekend in Louisville - Dining and Sightseeing Tips?

Jump to last reply

I'm headed to Louisville for a wedding in June. I'll be there on a Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning. It's a quick trip, but I'd like to make the most of it. Would love to hear your recommendations for the following:

- Great places to have breakfast and lunch. Casual or fancy, I don't mind. Just looking for some local flavor and great food.

- Your sightseeing tips. I like museums, culture, etc. Would like to see things that are unique to Louisville. Was thinking about Churchill Downs as a definite and Locust Grove and the Slugger Museum as maybes. Are they worth the time? Any other fun local sights you can recommend, perhaps something less touristy/ off the beaten path?

I won't have a car, since it's such a quick trip and all the wedding activities are in the city. So I'd love for everything to be accessible on foot, by cab or public transportation. (I'm staying at 21C).

Two other quick questions:

- I'm assuming late June weather in Louisville will be hot and humid. Am I right?

- Anyone have an estimate on the cost of a cab from the airport to downtown Louisville? I'm not sure how far the airport is from the city.

THANKS!
