LOUISVILLE
Kentucky, U.S.A.
GATEWAY TO THE SOUTH
Welcome to Louisville, Kentucky.
Louisville is the largest city in the state with around 760,000 residents. The city was founded in 1778 by a man named George Rogers Clark and was named after King Louis XVI of France. Beautifully situated beside the Falls of the Ohio west of the Appalachian Mountains, Louisville is the only large obstruction to river flow between the upper Ohio River and the Gulf of Mexico. The City of Louisville is known as the home of the Kentucky Derby, Kentucky Fried Chicken and the University of Louisville, as well as the Louisville Cardinals athletic teams. Architecture in Louisville is wonderful blend of old and new, and those who like history will particularly enjoy the Old Louisville neighborhood. This part of town is the largest historically preserved district in the U.S., featuring only Victorian homes and buildings. Downtown features a mix of modern skyscrapers and charming older structures, such as the Southern National Bank building. On West Main Street in downtown, you'll find the biggest cluster of cast iron facades in the country, aside from New York's SoHo district. If you're looking for shopping, Louisville has you more than covered. The city prides itself with a huge assortment of independent businesses and restaurants, which are indeed memorable for their ingenuity and creativity. The Brown Hotel became known for its Hot Brown Sandwich in 1926, and a few blocks away is the Seelbach Hotel where Al Capone and his associates would meet during the Prohibition era. Rest assured that the City of Louisville would keep you entertained, as the community features a plethora of annual events. The most famous one is the Kentucky Derby, which is held each year on the first Saturday of May. The Kentucky Derby was once described as the biggest party in the south by Esquire Magazine, and is preceded by a two-week long festival featuring the largest fireworks display on the continent. With a burgeoning restaurant scene, terrific shopping and a ton of musical venues, Louisville has all the great amenities of a true big city.
