Hello. I work for a board game manufacturer in Cincinnati, Ohio. We are making game about several U.S. cities and Louisville will be of the cities! The game will be called Louisville-Opoly. I am researching the cities for the game spaces & here is what I have come up with so far to represent Louisville. The following places may be placed around the game board on a similar layout as a Monopoly game board.

Here are the possible spaces:

The Brown Hotel
The Old Seelback Bar
Waterfront Park
Cherokee Park
Jefferson Memorial Forest
Louisville Zoo
Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom
Louisville Slugger Museum
Muhammed Ali Center
Frazier International History Museum
Speed Art Museum
Kentucky Science Center
The Kentucky Center
Actors Theatre of Louisville
The Highlands
Old Louisville
Bardstown Road Farmers Market
Old Louisville Farmers Market
9th Street Farmers Market (which farmers market is the most popular?)
Falls Of The Ohio State Park
Beargrass Creek State Nature Preserve
Fourth Street Live
University of Louisville
Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon
Hot Brown
Mint Julep
The Courier-Journal
Louisville International Airport
Kentucky Derby
Churchill Downs
Thunder Over Louisville
Abbey Road On The River
Kentucky State Fair
Bourbon Festival
Gaslight Festival
Belle of Louisville
Cave Hill Cemetary
Fort Knox
Waverly Hills Sanatorium
Urban Bourbon Trail or The Bourbon Trail (which is it?)

Please reply with any feedback or opinions on the places chosen. Not all the places on the list will be included on the game. What would you include or not include? Do you feel something is outdated or an important place is not included? Is something titled/named incorrectly? Any feedback is great! Our ultimate goal is to represent Louisville fairly & correctly!!

I also need four famous streets/roads from Louisville. So far I have:

Frankfurt Avenue
River Road
Bardstown Road
Baxter Avenue

Anyother streets that should be considered?

THANK YOU!!

Isn't Pappy Van Winkle bourbon now produced from Buffalo Trace in Frankfort?

That seems a little out of place for a board game about Louisville, IMO, although the history is there.

Are there any bourbons that are still produced in the immediate Louisville area? Otherwise the Bardstown bourbon corridor?

Headquarters for Pappy is in Louisville, but it is made in Frankfort by Buffalo Trace (and it is spectacular). Early Times is made here (not so spectacular), and, of course, Brown-Forman is hq'ed here.

As for roads and streets, you must include Cherokee Road - a glorious stretch from Cave Hill Cemetery to Cherokee Park, lined with some of our most beautiful and historic homes. It was featured a few years ago on HGTV's Dream Drives.

The center of Louisville retail used to be 4th and Walnut. Walnut is now Muhammed Ali Blvd. Both streets are quite significant.

The Seelbach Hotel is spelled the way I just spelled it.

Heaven Hill distillaries is still there and I think that Rebel Yell is still too.

Meth labs of Shepherdsville

Trailer Parks of Mount Washington

Knob Creek Shootin' Range

Your spew against Bullit County is bordering on trolling. Please contain it.

I'll give it more thought later, but off the top of my head:

Consider adding:
Iroquois Amphitheater
St James Court
Kentucky Oaks


Eliminate:
Fort Knox - it's in Fort Knox, near E-town.
Bourbon Trail and Bourbon Festival - both belong on Kentuck-opoly.




I would make the Park Place space be Kentucky Oaks and the Boardwalk space be Kentucky Derby.

I have to agree!

It might be trademarked but what about using Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) somehow. I also agree with CatManDoo about using St. James Court.
