The resort itself is located in Elizabeth, a southern Indiana town so small that for much of the 19th century, the local school was a single-room log cabin. Yet just across the Ohio River, downtown Louisville brims with indie-music venues, art galleries, and museums, including the Frazier History Museum. South of downtown, you’ll encounter block after block of Victorian mansions in Old Louisville and stately brick buildings at the University of Louisville.Louisville’s pride and joy lies a little farther south at Churchill Downs, which has hosted the Kentucky Derby since 1875. If you’re not around during a race, it’s still worth checking out the Kentucky Derby Museum’s impressive trophy display, historical race footage, and jockey diaries.

Made up of a nurse practitioner and experts on nutrition, anatomy, and aesthetics, Louisville Lifestyle Medicine's staff helps patients manage existing medical conditions or simply feel their best. The center's services cover a broad range of disciplines, and include everything from photorejuvenation and pixel skin resurfacing to pigmented lesion removal and hair removal.

Participants in the guided weight-management program benefit from the staff's varied skill sets to help shed pounds, whether through custom meal and exercise plans, expert guidance, or by emptying one's pockets of heavy change.

Cosmetic services include injectables such as Botox, Dysport, Restylane, and Juvederm.
When considering what to bring to a desert island, one might consider a snowmobile, a milk steamer, and one of Elite Massage Therapy's therapists. The outfit's two locations dispense different methods of relief—from his station downtown, Jacob Kilbride specializes in sports-performance massage, supplemented by the rehabilitative Kinesio Taping Method and a Chinese scar-tissue mediation technique called gua sha. His journey began at Spencerian School of Massage, where he mastered anatomy and the fundamental techniques of Swedish, deep-tissue, and other modalities. Elite Massage Therapy's therapists complement therapeutic healing with sensory indulgence by keeping aromatherapy oils and hot stones on hand to dip into vats of molten chocolate.
