Even though our trip to Belgium is on the horizon, we’ve been itching to take a long weekend somewhere stateside and settled on a return trip to the Bluegrass State. We visited Louisville a couple of years ago and checked off the major tourist attractions, freeing up this trip to meander through neighborhoods, discovering shops and bars along the way. There are a few must-dos on our list already: coffee at Please and Thank You (I’m definitely buying one of their adorable branded mugs), the races at Churchill Downs (we’ve done this already, but it’s too much fun to pass up), craft beer at Holy Grale (an old church renovated into a bar), a distillery tour at Woodford Reserve, and a stop at the Zappos/6pm outlet.
We leave next Friday in Dave’s convertible (oh la la). Let me know if there are any hidden gems I need to add to our itinerary!
