    Louisville is a wonderful city. When me and my wife were dating, we went up there for her birthday to see Les Miserables at their performing arts center. We ate at a great restaraunt by the river, but I can't recall the name of it for the life of me. There are many family friendly activiies to see and do in the city. Everybody we met was extremely nice and very helpful, and if I remember right, it wasn't too hard to find your way around the city. we never seen any bad streets there, although I am sure it has some. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed it, and I'm sure you will too. I look forward to seeing some pics on here!

                    Louisville hosts the Mid-America Truck Show every March. I have been to that three times, but can't guide you toward anything useful.

                    The first year we stayed in Bardstown (Muddy didn't make reservations early enough) where the air was heavy with the airborne waste from a distillery nearby. It claims to be the bourbon capitol of the world and is a very attractive town to visit. And the air smells soooo good!

                    So, what brings you to Louisville? It claims to be the home of the "Most exciting two minutes...,"

                    THAT raises the eyebrows, huh? "...in sports...the Kentucky Derby.":tongue:

                    Hope you have a good trip and enjoyable time.

                      We are flying directly to Louisville now. I'm chaperoning eleven 14 year old's and a coach. The girls are playing volleyball for few hours and we'll be sightseeing and getting to know Louisville some each day. So Katie thanks much for the heads up on the tattoo parlor, we'll need to stay clear of that. Last year our girls placed some bets at the derby (including mine).. and did six flags.

                        so Kentucky was good.. the nicest people, very green and nice weather.. no complaints... except they all knew you were a tourist if you used turn signals.

                        had good food ... we ate at the cardinal cafe, captains quarters, and regular spots like cheesecake factory and olive garden.

                        visited church hill downs, six flags. the girls stayed in the hotel a lot as they were tired from volleyball and resting for the next day. so sad to be the chaperone as I didn't see as much as I would have liked. So not a lot of pictures to share except for the race track as most of my pictures have smiling faces (i put up some pictures tomorrow.. my dd ran off to whidbey with my camera)

                        we had a awesome tour learned a lot about the kentucky derby.. amazing story about the horse who won the derby this year.. he was there at church hill during our tour..

                        so here's the deal... I went with my 14 year old to Kentucky because they needed a chaperone and felt bad cause I didn't travel with her to Louisville last year.

                        so I gave up going to Miami with my 16 year old who was playing in the junior olympics at the same time.. their hotel was on the beach, had a red carpet event at their hotel with lot's of stars.. my dd has photos with some of them and their sleds.. a few stayed at the same hotel Their team place in the top ten.. I've attended the j o competition 5 of the last 6 years.. I really missed being there for their wins and doing the beaches.

                        my point being that Louisville was a fine place to visit even with what I missed out on in Miami.

                          Glad you enjoyed your stay Moms. Louisville has a lot to offer. Living just outside the city limits one has a tendency to take for granted what is here. Seeing it everyday I guess makes you that way. Probably that way everywhere.

                          Guess I should have warned you about the turn signal thing. It's drive and go here!!!
