We have explored lexington top to bottom, and we want to try louisville. We have visitors coming in april, so we would like to show them other parts of KY. Touristy things are welcome, after all, we will be tourists. We are in our late 20s FWIW

Thanks!

Churchill Downs, I think the spring meet begins in late April. Waterfront Park, Bardstown Rd./The Highlands(Go during the night on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday, that is when people your age will be out at the bars). Glassworks, Louisville Slugger Factory, go to a game at Slugger Field, 4th Street Live, Eat on the River, either at Joe's Crabshack, Tumbleweed, Buckhead, Rocky's, or Captain's Quarters. Thunder Over Louisville is April 17th, and there are many other Kentucky Derby Festival events going on in April.

When are you coming in April, because as missy and I have said, the Derby Festival is going on so you are going to have a hard time finding a hotel in or around downtown April 16-18 because of Thunder Over Louisville, the largest fireworks show in North America.

Make sure you go downtown during Thunder, which is the Saturday you go down. You will feel like you are in a very big city compared to Lexington. Make sure you explore fourth street, main street, market street, bardstown road, and frankfort avenue. check out waterfront park and cherokee park.

Commentary | LouisvilleHotBytes.com. get on the free forum and ask for dining advice. very helpful folks and you should get a taste of restaurants that simply cannot be found in Lex.

Without knowing anything other than your age, and that you are familiar with Lexington I'd have to recommend 4th Street Live and particularly Makers Mark (it's a bar). I really like the Old Seelbach Bar at the Seelbach Hotel. They have live jazz on certain nights and it's right in the thick of 4th Street Live but has a totally different feel & clientele. Then, an age appropriate jaunt is the Trolley Hop. It runs from Downtown out Market Street. It hits some terrific bars, art shops, and antique/collectables galleries. It's a terrific way to try several bars, see one of Louisville's artsy neighborhoods, and mingle with other people along the same journey. Try googling "Louisville trolley hop" or start at this link- First Friday Trolley Hop - Profile of the First Friday Trolley Hop. Don't be shy. It's a friendly adventure. If you're not sure what to do just show up and ask the other bar hoppers & you will probably be given lots of advice on which places to try.

The Trolley Hop was fun when I did it, but unfortunately it is only on the first friday of each month and you all won't be here. I think you all will be more than satisfied going to Thunder and to the Highlands. If you want any specific restaurants or activities to do, let me know what you all are into and I can recommend some places for you all.
