About Louisville

Conveniently located on the Ohio River, and commonly referred to as the “Gateway to the South,” Louisville combines a rich culture with big-city perks. Louisville proudly hosts multiple world class events each year, including the Kentucky Derby and Thunder Over Louisville, the largest annual fireworks display in the U.S. Other notable events include the Forecastle Festival, which draws 35,000 music fans to Louisville Waterfront Park, as well as the Kentucky Bourbon Festival in nearby Bardstown. Downtown’s West Main District, or “Museum Row,” features the Frazier History Museum, the Kentucky Science Center, the Louisville Slugger Museum, the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, and the Muhammad Ali Center. When it comes to dining and nightlife, downtown’s Fourth Street never disappoints, offering a diverse mix of restaurants and entertainment venues, such as Gordon Biersch Brewing Company, Hard Rock Cafe, and Fourth Street Live!, a 350,000-square-foot entertainment and retail complex. For those who prefer coworking spaces, Louisville provides more than 10 options, including the popular Launch Louisville and 31e. Located only a couple of miles from downtown, Muhammad Ali International Airport offers direct flights to dozens of fun destinations including Miami, Denver, Los Angeles, New Orleans, and more.
