  • Louisville Visual Art Association
    In 1909, a group of local art enthusiasts banded together to foster a community appreciation for art and further the practice of creating art. More than three decades later, they moved from their home at the old Water Tower, and now fill their new space with workshops, classes, and exhibits. Louisville Visual Art Association remains dedicated to promoting local artists, artistic styles, and contemporary culture. A team of instructors instills painting and sculpting skills in children of all ages with the Children's Fine Art Classes program, which lets kids hone their understanding of color and technique during nearly 40 classes and camps. They also teach adult art classes, and help economically and socially disadvantaged students exhibit their artwork through Open Doors. Six to eight annual exhibitions often showcase work from these programs, but may also display fabric and knit pieces from local artists, or house events such as custom plates, cups, and utensils fashioned by 16 national ceramics artists to recreate Salvador Dali’s themed dinner parties. Each year, staff also fill two galleries with up to 800 works from its children’s programs, and celebrate local restaurants and music at the annual Bacon Ball.

  • 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.

  • The Conrad-Caldwell House Museum
    It's easy to see why The Conrad-Caldwell House Museum is often referred to as "Conrad's Castle." The massive limestone mansion was a marvel when architect Arthur Loomis built it in the late 19th century, using indoor plumbing, electricity, and all the other modern innovations of the time. Today, the house stands as a piece of history, one where preserved decor and family heirlooms make it look just as it did when William and Elaine Caldwell lived there in 1908. Size: a three-story Richardsonian Romanesque mansion, with two floors filled with furniture, paintings, and other antiques circa 1908 Eye Catchers: the limestone masonry work of the house's exterior, including many gargoyles Don't Miss: one of the docent-led tours, which may even be hosted by a member of the Caldwell family The Price Tag: it cost about $75,000 to build the home in the late 1800s; that would translate to around $3–$4 million today Crown Jewel: the Front Hall, where a hand-caved oak grand staircase takes center stage Pro Tip: look closely at the floors, moldings, and woodwork—each of the house's main rooms was finished in a different type of hardwood While You're in the Neighborhood: visit the other historic homes in the area, such as the Thomas Edison House, where an unnamed genius used to live Special Programs: twilight tours held the third Thursday of every month, special exhibits on the third floor, and lectures held throughout the year

  • Louisville Nature Center
    Amid the hustle and bustle of the city, Louisville Nature Center offers a tranquil escape from urban sprawl. At its 41-acre Beargrass Creek State Nature Preserve, more than 2 miles of hiking trails wind past a verdant forest populated by 180 species of tree, shrub, and wildflower. The latter blooms in a native pond and garden, and dragonflies and 30 butterfly species in other gardens pay homage to Lord of the Flies by trying to collectively lift a conch. More creatures soar skyward inside one of Louisville's only bird blinds, where visitors can watch 150 species of resident and migratory birds fluttering about. After exploring on their own, guests can relax on one the picnic tables or beneath the covered gazebo before joining in on special events such as owl hikes. Youngsters, meanwhile, can discover more nature factoids at summer camps, educational programs, or birthday parties, which include guided hikes and live animal presentations.

  • 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.

  • The Waterfront Challenge
    The starting pistol fires and the runners are off, but they're in for a surprise. Rather than running an easy 5K around gentle bends and smooth pavement, they have to clamber over parked cars, carry hefty tires, and participate in burlap sack races before they even get near the finish line. This is the Waterfront Challenge, an urban race designed to test a runner's mettle, strength, and endurance on a route that runs through Louisville's scenic, 85-acre Waterfront Park along the Ohio River. The excitement extends beyond the unorthodox obstacles with waves that run late into the night—those who take off at 9 p.m. make up the Glow Race, which elevates the fun by illuminating runners with glow sticks, glow-in-the dark costumes, and the runners' own sweat, which is naturally bioluminescent. At the end of the race, runners celebrate their victories on Big Four Lawn where music, cold beer, and food join an awards ceremony for top finishers and best glow-in-the-dark costume.
