Tour guide "McDanny" showed us an incredible experience being 100 feet underground. He was extremely knowledgeable on the history of this 110 acre limestone mine that started in the 1930's until the 1970's. Fascinating history and information about the impact of limestone and bourbon in Kentucky. I loved the electric bikes with super fat tires. It made the uneven and rocky terrain quite manageable and provided some decent speed for an exhilarating experience! The ability to see 95% of the cavern including the zip line area and going through the mountain/BMX bike areas was quite the treat. McDanny was safety conscious, having a grandmother in the group he was very patient and was able to help her out when she had a bit of difficulty navigating a minor hill on the way back. My 12 year old grandson and I thought this was the highlight of our trip to Louisville....even after we had been to the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory. We would love to come back to experience the Mega Cavern's Christmas Light show!

Mall St. Matthews

Reviewed By jgbtravels - Louisville, KY

The two biggest malls in Louisville are Mall St. Matthews and Oxmoor Center. Mall ST. Matthews is large, clean and has several stores to choose from-especially for the younger shopper. Or especially for those of us who shop for gifts for the younger crowd. They have a Cheesecake Factory and a Red Robin plus a sizable food court. There is also a Starbucks for the coffee lover. The down side is that during the holiday rush parking is at a premium and getting in and out of the mall can be frustrating. Note: they are attempting to make improvements in the access roads for customers. I’m just not sure when that will finally be completed. One more thing- they have an attractive(fairly new) cinema theatre there now.

Charlie Vettiner Park

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

Pro:
...Zoysia fairways were awesome.
...The greens were very large and the bent grass was in perfect shape. Almost no ball marks.
...Lots of cool dog legs.
...Very Scenic with lots of elevation change.
...It was a difficult course which made it fun for my husband because he is a good golfer (tight tee shots on several holes and uphill shots into the greens).
...Folks in the clubhouse were very helpful and nice.
...Unique practice areas - huge putting green, small, undulating sand and pitching green, and an open short game area where you use your own balls to practice short shots.

Con:
...There were a few hidden hazards which makes it difficult for new players like me. A creek that you cannot see from the tee box goes across the first fairway. It is also downhill into the creek which makes the first shot problematic. Also bunkers in dog legs that you cannot see from the tee box. Other holes you tee off over a hill with no idea what is on the other side.
...The rough is okay but there were some bare spots and washouts.
...Bunker's were not maintained at all. They were wet, had standing water, had goose poop and leaves.
...Did not find any water to drink anywhere on the course.
...The only useful yardage markers in the fairways were for 100 150 and 200 yards. ...Most sprinkler heads were blank but I saw one that said 171, when it was actually about 130 out.
...No driving range

Brown Park

Reviewed By ManningAvenger - Sellersburg, Indiana

One of the most scenic parks around. Trees abound almost everywhere. Beargrass Creek flows through the middle of the park. An old cemetery borders the southeast corner. Mallard ducks swim the creek under the bridge. Apartments and Baptist Hospital border the park. Interstate 64 cannot be seen, but can be heard. Brown is a very nice urban park.

Putt Putt Family Fun Center

Reviewed By Beauregard70 - Fort Thomas, Kentucky

This is not fancy mini golf! It looks like it was originally built in the 1970's and all they have done for maintenance over the years is put on a yearly fresh coat of paint and replace the light bulbs.

They have speakers playing background music throughout the course with probably the original soundtrack from when they opened.

That being said, this was an awesome experience. Very friendly staff, very happy and friendly patrons, and a very nostalgic vibe. We would go back!

Cave Hill Cemetery

Reviewed By MattKY - Louisville, Kentucky

Call me strange, but we walk around cemeteries. It's clean (usually), cheap, interesting fare for any lazy afternoon or post-breakfast walk. With that said, I've walked through many cemeteries, but always compare them to this one (home-court advantage, I suppose). It's just beautiful, expansive, very well thought-out too with lots of history!

The Parklands of Floyds Fork

Reviewed By Sony S



Truly the jewel of the city. There’s so many special features to this gorgeous location. The trails are well maintained for walkers, runners or bikers. The steams and ponds are perfectly showcased for beauty and usability. It’s heart warming seeing a father/son fishing together or a duo kayaking along the steam. Bring your kids and let them explore nature. The playground and spray grounds are so much fun. Its free of trash and has the cleanest bathrooms. The Jones family and all the contributors who believed in this park and made it a reality are dreammakers. It represents a vision for our city to be healthy, happy and enjoying nature together as a community. We should all join with a membership to keep the Parklands just the way it is.

The Big Four Bridge

Reviewed By Jane E

This bridge is now dedicated to pedestrian/bicycle traffic and connects Louisville KY and Jeffersonville IN. We found it our first night when we walked to the waterfront, and really enjoyed the venue it provided for exercise and tourism. The availability of rental bikes in Louisville is a real plus as well!

Cherokee Park

Less hilly and grassier than its local cousins, Cherokee Park is mostly open meadows and woods.

Reviewed By Frank H

There is a "scenic loop" throughout the park that makes it really simple to traverse w/out confusion. The heavily tree lined streets in the park (& out) make this town/area one of my favorite smaller, big cities. Be sure to go see St. James Court in the historic section of the city. Be blessed!

Locust Grove

Built in 1790, Locust Grove, a three story brick Georgian home, is the final home of General George Rogers Clark, the founder of Louisville, and conqueror of the Old Northwest Territory. The house was built by his sister Lucy Croghan and her husband William Croghan who raised 8 children here and hosted their brother William Clark, of Lewis and Clark fame, as well as Presidents Monroe, Jackson and Taylor, Vice President Arron Burr, statesmen such as Cassius Clay, and several artists including John James Audubon. This National Historic Landmark has been restored to reflect the elegance of General Clark's time at Locust Grove. The 55 acres of gardens, fields and woodlands are open for exploration daily.

Reviewed By MRbluegill - Kentucky

Renovated recently, this home hosts many weddings, special parties especially during the summer months. Nice banquet area available inside of rain is threatening. Small warming kitchen, but you need a caterer for food. Many areas of the garden offer great photo backgrounds and dining outside.
