As I have stated in previous posts, I am planning to move to Louisville (hopefully within the year). I thought this would be an interesting post for you to participate in, as well as for me to learn about your city.

You have 1 day, 24 hours, Saturday morning to Sunday morning, to convince your best friend to move to the Ville. How would you spend your 24 hours? What would you do? Please don't answer from a tourist standpoint, but from a "this is how great life is in Louisville" standpoint.

How old is the friend? What is their lifestyle? Do they have a job/career?

No, no....I don't want to set guidelines. I'm interested in what YOU guys think is great and special about Louisville. What is YOUR perfect day in town?

I understand, but there are so many things to see and do. Single gay men/women would not be interested in the things that married couples with 2.4 kids would be interested in and so on and so forth.

why should Louisvillans have to convince you? Just take 24 hours to read the posts on this forum and convince yourself.

Dang fellas. I don't need to be convinced. You've missed my point. I have researched the crap out of Louisville. I've read almost every post on this site. I just want to get to know the city more, from various perspectives.

If I told you I was X and enjoyed Y then that would be the generic answers I would recieve, and I would not learn about the entire city. Certainly the frequent contributors to this site come from all walks of life and have different ways to entertain themselves. I simply thought it would be neat for the people on this forum to post THEIR ideal day. A great city is made up of people from all walks of life. I am interested in different perspectives, not the same perspective because of criteria I have entered.

I guess maybe I should have just asked what are your favorite things to do in Louisville? Not what you think I would like to do....but what do YOU like to do? What makes Louisville great in your eyes?

Default Enjoying Louisville

A good day for me is boating on the Ohio river. Cruise down river to one of several water front restaurants and enjoy outdoor dining. Cruise back up river enjoying the sites along the way, pull into one of three large islands and bask in the warm afternoon sun.

At least until gas sells for $5.00 a gallon!

1. Drive down St James Court at twilight when the fountain is lit
2. Take a drive from Cherokee Park to Iroqouis Park down the Olmstead parkways
3. Take a bike ride down the River Walk or Levee Trail
4. Spend a day at Museum Row touring the Glass Works, Slugger, Science, Ali, and Frazier Museums- save on parking by parking along Main Street West of 10th
5. Keep Louisville Weird by patronising local restaurants like the Dairy Kastle at Eastern Pky & Bradley ($1 ice cream cones--> yum!) or the Windy City Pizzeria at 4th & Winkler

Wow! That really sounds great! I did not know there were water front restaurants in the area. That makes Louisville sound even better. My family would definitely be all over that! Thanks for your feedback.

Great list census. I'm sure my family will enjoy all 5 of your postings. Sporting events, museums, parks, music, you name it...if it's hometown....we love it! Thanks for your post.
