July was a busy one. Because of that, we needed to stay somewhat close for our monthly weekend trip during July. We started talking about options and decided on Louisville, Kentucky. I think this was the place that we got the “wait, why are you going there” question the most. It seems like a lot of people think of Kentucky and picture home on the Range or all baseball all the time. But as I always do, I started planning as soon we we decided on a location and learned that we could easily fill a few days with things to do in Louisville.
When we looked at our schedules, we realized that we could only getaway for about 28 hours. We left at 6am on Saturday and got back home around 12pm on Sunday, the definition of a whirlwind trip. We would have loved to get some more time in this cool city, but it gives us more reason to get back there! Our hotel right downtown, and with arriving so early our room was nowhere near ready. We dropped our bags off and walked towards the waterfront in search of some bike rentals.
Once we found a rental shop, we debated renting or just getting a Uber everywhere. The heat index was 110, and biking everywhere didn’t sound totally appealing. The owner of the bike shop walked over and said we could have whatever we wanted, buy one get one free, so we went with bikes. We rented them for the day and went everywhere we could without passing out.
Within 24 hours we went to several awesome places, like Kings and Cooper Distillery, Louisville Slugger Museum and even Indiana! Dave really enjoyed all of the Pokemoning (is that a word?) he was able to do, and I loved the swings throughout all of the waterfront parks. I’m sure the day would have been a bit more exciting if it wasn’t as hot, but overall we both really liked Louisville! I’m excited to recap the things we did and the awesome meal we had, but for now, enjoy the latest vlog and some photos!
