Not only is Louisville the largest city in Kentucky, it is perhaps best known for hosting the world-famous Kentucky Derby on the first Saturday of May each year. The actual race is preceded by a two-week long Kentucky Derby Festival, which boasts the largest firework display in America and features such fun activities as the Great Steamboat Race, a Balloon Race and the Pegasus Race.
With a vibrant cultural center, a long list of historical events and the distinct title of being the only place in the world to produce true bourbon, Kentucky offers a wide array of events and attractions for all ages. Your entire family will enjoy a vacation to Louisville.
