Last week, while I was absent here, I was gallivanting around Kentucky with my parents, sister, a sister in-law, a couple of brothers and a niece. We rented a house in Louisville for the weekend and stopped along the way in Lexington to spend the day visiting the Kentucky Horse Park and to see a horse race. Louisville is a really easy drive from Michigan and it was great to get into real spring weather for a few days.
We found our rental on craigslist, it is a private home that the owners rent out for weekends. Renting a house works really well for us, we like to be able to cook our own meals and have a place to hang out in between tours and activities. While we didn't get to all the places I would have liked to visit, we had a full trip and were able to get out an see a fair amount of this fun city. Here is a little round up of what we did.
Kentucky Horse Park*
Keeneland Race Track*
Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory Tour*
Church Hill Downs
*I will have additional post about these places
It is a little hard to get eight people out the door to all the places you might like to see so we defiantly missed a lot of fun things to do in the Louisville area, but it just leaves us with something to do the next time we visit.
