Louisville Tourism

Welcome to Bourbon City - Louisville, Kentucky!

Home of the legendary Kentucky Derby, the birthplace of Muhammad Ali, the famed Louisville Slugger, and some of the world's finest Bourbon. 

Yes, Bourbon is a spirit that comes in a glass, but it’s also the spirit that defines our culture, our arts and parks, and our creative energy. It's this kind of spirit that helped create Louisville into a city that combines heritage with innovation, authenticity with originality, and quirkiness with friendliness in a way that’s completely unique to our region.

Louisville is an entirely different type of Southern. With a booming bourbon renaissance, iconic attractions, world-class hotels & venues and a renowned culinary scene, Louisville is an experience like no other city.
