Dress up for Derby Day

No trip to Louisville is complete without visiting Churchill Downs, the proud home of the Kentucky Derby. You can delve into the history of the races at the Kentucky Derby Museum, which is open throughout the year. The Muhammad Ali Center does a fantastic job at capturing the legacy of Kentucky's most famous son, while culture buffs shouldn't miss the Speed Art Museum. As well as classic and contemporary art, the museum's light filled Grand Atrium and stacked concrete facade are attractions in themselves. After a long day of sightseeing, there's no better place to enjoy an Old Fashioned than the porch of your Louisville vacation rental.
