hey everyone -

I'm going to be in louisville for a couple of days this week and I'm trying to plan some fun activities for my girlfriend and myself...I'll be staying downtown..we are in our twenties and like to have a good time..(booz!..well in moderation)

I'm thinking something along the lines of..

lunch
some activity
dinner
after dinner activity
sleep
early morning activity
lunch
depart.

Any suggestions for the above itinerary? I have never been to louisville before (I'm coming from Florida). For the food, I definately want to try something that is distinctly louisville as opposed to chains.

Are their fun activities on the ohio river? What is your opinion on 4th street live district?

I know this post might seem ridiculous, but I thank everyone in advance!

The Slugger Museum is really nice, admission is only $9

My favorite local restaurant is the Windy City Pizzeria on 4th Street south of U of L. It is only 1 mile from Churchill Downs and the KY Derby Museum

THE KENTUCKY DERBY MUSEUM: PLAN A VISIT

4th Street Live is very nice, but is mostly national chain restaurants and businesses. The best area for local bars and nightclubs is Baxter Ave/ Bardstown Rd in The Highlands area.

if you are more specific on the days/nights you are here, plus whether you are a club, pub, or live music person, and whether you want cheap, ethnic, moderate, american, or any other kind of food.....then I can give you ideas.

Lightbulb activities

Best bet if they are playing a home game is to catch a Louisville Bats baseball. Great stadium. Less than going to the museum too.
