With regards to good taste, there in Louisville with more than 2,500 restaurants, from quiet cafés to gourmet palaces, serving variety of cuisines to eat out, architecture is worth your look too. Attractions include;
- Louisville Slugger Museum, a main draw for baseball fans
- Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft preserves works of art by hands of contemporary artists
- The Speed Art Museum, a traditional art museum on the campus of the University of Louisville
This is what inside Louisville, but the most interesting costs nothing and takes little effort to see – its cityscape. Locals regard their city to be short of memorable architecture touches, but this far from the truth. In fact, Louisville is a child of architectural luminary as Frederick Law Olmsted - the "Father of American Landscape Architecture."
However, architecture is not enough about Louisville – a city synonymous with thunder. Don't be put off by associating it with weather - Louisville earned this reputation from booming fireworks and the thundering of horses' hooves. Louisville is famous worldwide for being home to the most exciting sport event in America - the Kentucky Derby – held each year at the famed Churchill Downs racetrack.
This event is really the biggest tourist draw, but not the last one as the city has worked hard to attract tourists year round. And these efforts paid off with the success of the world's largest air show like Thunder over Louisville or The Great Balloon Race with sky decorated by hot-air balloons. More than 800,000 people come to the banks of the Ohio River for tasty food, good music and a look at skydivers.
But most tourists who come to Louisville are mad about sport, especially baseball. For them this is not a city, but the face of baseball on the national sporting map. It is a home to famed Louisville Slugger, major baseball league and it is here sportsmen can hold the world's largest bat constructed in Louisville.
