Welcome to Louisville, Kentucky's largest city and home to baseball bats, great bourbon, horse racing, and all sorts of cultural attractions. As a city standing proudly along the mighty Ohio River, Louisville boasts something for everyone. Whether you're a party animal or a fan of fried chicken, you're going to fall in love with this city. As soon as you land at Louisville International Airport (SDF), get ready to play.
After searching for tickets on Louisville flights and booking one, learn how to get to your lodging. Most hotels near Louisville International Airport offer courtesy shuttle services. If your accommodation is downtown or elsewhere, you have multiple options. You can rent a car near baggage claim, hail a taxi cab on the traffic stand outside the lower level, or pre-arrange a limo service to pick you up. A more cost-effective option is to take a city bus (known as Transit Authority of River City, or TARC); you can find schedules and route information at the airport information booth--just bring correct change for the ride. Need a boost of energy after you fly? Sample everything from caramel-covered marshmallows to bourbon balls from the food trucks, or bike the popular Olmstead Park System.
Relax at Louisville Waterfront Park, look at the Victorian homes in Old Louisville, tour the Cave Hill Cemetery, and get a buzz on the Bourbon Trail. If you get hungry, try a Hot Brown sandwich and a Derby pie. If you've saved money by finding one of those cheap flights to Louisville, use that extra cash to party in areas like the Highlands; in addition to the bourbon, sample a local craft beer and a mint julep.
