Goner Message Board / ???? / Cool things to do in Louisville, Kentucky?
Posted: Jul 27, 2008 3:53 pm
 
I'm not really asking for me, my parents are going for the first time. My Dad is into old cars, I think they're going to a car show. He wanted to know if the car museum in Indianapolis is any good. They're also going through that city. They woudn't be interested in any bars or shows, but if anybody knows about any good museums or antique stores, record stores, or restaurants, I'd appreciate the suggestion.

I think Goner should put out some sort of travel guidebook where goners can list all there favourite record stores and restaurants.

It's a little ways outside Louisville, but a tour of the Maker's Mark distillery is a good time. Real beautiful country out there.

Yeah, seriously, Kentucky is one of the prettiest states.

I don't really know of anything to do there besides the distillery tours, though.

louisville's main businesses are:

maker's mark
the derby
baseball bats (louisville slugger)
it is also the first hospital that did a heart transplant i THINK... its hospital IS a first at something, but i am not exactly sure

i think they do have a lovely antiques and art scene, but i've only been to the horse races...

I really need to take a long weekend and do all this shit. Lived here almost 7 years and never been to Churchill Downs.

What kind of food would your parents like?

louisville reminds me of memphis in some ways. i always liked it a lot. tell them to check out bardstown road for some good restaurants and cool stores. in the highlands area around baxter and bardstown. (cuz bardstown is kinda long).

This is great, thanks guys! I'm sure some of these things will be interesting to them.

Uh, they don't really have a favourite kind of restaurant, just so long as it's inexpensive really. Are there any places that have interesting deserts that don't cost alot?

If your dad is into cars, the Corvette museum in Bowling Green is awesome and alot closer than Indy.

Thanks, I'm sure he'd be really interested in that.

Isn't there something there to celebrate the birthplace of Cassius Clay. He's an all-time great American, even if he was a consciencious objector.

Yes.

the Corvette museum in Bowling Green

I don't give a fuck if your dad likes it. Go put YOUR foot in it to say you "been there".

Bowling Green is a bunch of strip malls, but the Corvette Meuseum? Yep. I'd hit that like the Makers Mark place.
