  • Riverside, the Farnsley-Moremen Landing
    You might think there's a lot of history to be discovered at Riverside; it was a thriving riverboat landing throughout most of the 1800s, after all. But there's even more history than that, as the site itself dates much further back in time. Long before the Greek Revival house was built by the Farnsley family and subsequently bought by the Moremens, the site was home to Native American cultures for thousands of years. Ongoing archaeological digs reveal both the history of the Farnsley and Moremen families who called this place home--as well as the pre-historic Native Americans who lived here before them. Today, visitors can take a tour through the millennia by dropping in on Civil War?era living in the reconstructed kitchen and experiencing even more ancient times by examining the stone tools and pottery discovered in ongoing archaeological excavations. The 1837 Greek Revival Farnsley-Moremen House stands at the center and stretches across 300 acres while showcasing spectacular scenic views of the Ohio River.

  • Louisville Zoo
    It's one of Louisville Zoo's signature exhibits: inside the award-winning Glacier Run, guests venture into an imaginary gold-mining town on the edge of the wilderness. There, through gigantic windows, they can watch polar and grizzly bears dive through water, climb rugged cliffs, and dig through pits for tasty treats. But Glacier Run is just the beginning at the zoo, which sprawls across 134 acres and is home to more than 1,500 animals. The zoo first opened in 1969, and it has since become one of the region's most popular attractions. Aside from connecting with the animals, families can enjoy playgrounds, adventure ropes courses, and rides, including an antique carousel and two colorful trains. Several times per day, guests can also attend animal-training sessions, where they meet zookeepers and learn more about the animals.

  • Louisville Slugger Museum
    There’s a fee to tour the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, but it doesn’t cost a thing to stroll along its Walk of Fame, a mile-long collection of bronze home plates that celebrate greats such as Babe Ruth and Ken Griffey Jr. At the end stands the worlds' biggest baseball bat, a 120-foot, 68,000-pound scale replica of the Babe's Slugger.
