Cruise down Third Avenue to see the stunning waterfront skyline. Take the kids to the Louisville Slugger Museum in a minivan. Head out of town a bit and visit the "Bourbon Capital of the World" in Bardstown. There are plenty of activities to do with your discount Louisville rental car.
Since Louisville is known as Derby City and is home to the "fastest two minutes in sports" (a.k.a. the Kentucky Derby), a trip wouldn't be complete without a drive to Churchill Downs just south of downtown. A fixture in the community since 1875, this historic racetrack is open year-round to visitors looking to place their bets. If gambling isn't your thing, the Kentucky Derby Museum next door is a great way to learn about the race that made this charming Southern city famous.
You may know that Louisville is the horse-racing capital of the world, but you may not know that one-third of the country's whiskey is made in the metropolitan area. Take a drive to the Maker's Mark Distillery. Free of charge to visitors, the green, lush grounds are home to the only distillery in the country that is a registered historic landmark. It's also the birthplace of some of most carefully crafted bourbon in the world -- so take some with you to enjoy.
Louisville is also home to the country's largest Victorian-era neighborhood in Old Louisville. Drive your cheap Louisville rental car back in time and admire the architecture in this historic preservation district conveniently located close to downtown.
