Bourbon and bluegrass? Check. The Kentucky Derby? Of course. Louisville is steeped in history and tradition, with a legacy of horse racing and bourbon distilling in the heart of the Bluegrass State. But look beyond that and find a modern and vibrant city loved by its inhabitants for its thriving arts scene, miles of lush green spaces and welcoming, friendly sense of community. Not to mention a rocking culinary scene that may be the best kept secret in the country, with brilliant chefs making waves on television, in magazines and at the James Beard house.
