When it comes to planning a summer vacation, every detail matters. From the activities and accommodation to the dining and the transportation, every aspect of the trip plays a part in ensuring your trip is unforgettable. With the warmer months just round the corner, we’ve put together some top tips for planning your summer in Louisville.
First and foremost, Louisville is known for the world-famous Kentucky Derby, which takes place on the first Saturday in May. If you’re planning a trip in the earlier summer months, attending the Kentucky Derby is a must! The weekend of the Kentucky Derby is always one to remember, but it doesn’t stop there. You can also take a tour of the historic Churchill Downs racetrack, visit the Kentucky Derby Museum, or attend one of the many horse races held throughout the season, so you can experience the fun all summer long!
Louisville is also home to numerous parks, including the beautiful Waterfront Park, which offers stunning views of the Ohio River. Take a stroll along the Big Four Bridge or rent a bike to explore the Louisville Loop, a 100-mile trail that connects various parks and neighborhoods throughout the city.
No trip to Louisville is complete without sampling some of the city’s famous bourbon. You can take a tour of the Urban Bourbon Trail, which features some of the best bourbon bars and distilleries in the city. You can also visit the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience or the Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Experience to learn more about the history and production of Kentucky’s signature spirit.
When it comes to accommodation, Louisville has plenty of options to suit any budget or preference. You can stay in a historic bed and breakfast in Old Louisville, book a room at a luxurious downtown hotel, or camp at one of the many parks or campgrounds in the area.
Last, but certainly not least, when planning your summer in Louisville, don’t forget to organize transportation! The Pegasus team works hard to ensure your journey is as seamless as possible, and we pride ourselves on offering a five-star service every time.
“We lucked out for our last-minute trip to Louisville last week – Pegasus was able to provide a van & driver for our trip to a few distilleries. The van was brand new and beautiful; our driver KC took good care of us. We were picked up promptly, KC brought us a cooler with water and snacks in case we needed them, then drove us to our bourbon tours. We did our own tour reservations though Pegasus can do that as well. So happy with their service and would recommend highly!”
