*****Bourbon Trail***** – too many to list up front but I will try to add more
Please note for anyone from outside the US the drinking age is 21
Maker’s Mark (more of a local bourbon and one of my favorite tours – with this one you get to see everything and free tour/tasting) Makers Mark Tours - There are directions on this link about 1.5 hours from Louisville
Slugger Museum (This is where professional bats are made, you can get tours and miniature bats – special note you can not take these bats as a carry on to a plane they are considered a weapon and many many travelers have had them taken away)
Waverly Hills Sanatorium History Tours
Really this is an attraction as well as a Halloween event. Tons of history to this place and rated as one of the most haunted hospitals. I think I heard they are planning to turn it into a hotel.
Oktoberfest – this one does not have an official site that I can find and the best place seems to move each year. Lately there has been something at 4th St or the Belvedere but normally there is something near/in German town that is the main local setup.
*****Derby***** Derby (Horse Racing)
Always the first Saturday in May
Oaks Day (Horse Racing)
Always the day before the Derby – more locals go to this, for the Derby most have house parties
Derby Festival - information about many of the events leading up to the Derby. This starts with Thunder (one of the largest firework displays I have ever been to and goes through a balloon glow, steamboat race, and many other events.
