About Louisville

Beyond bourbon, bats, bluegrass and horse-racing, Louisville is an action-packed destination and now the host city for the 2017 Safety & Operations Conference.

Louisville, which is Kentucky's largest city, is situated on the Ohio River along the Indiana border. Every May, its racecourse Churchill Downs hosts the Kentucky Derby, a renowned horse race whose long history is explored at the Kentucky Derby Museum. Baseball is celebrated at the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, where Major League bats are produced and a giant baseball "slugger" marks the entrance.

Landmarks along the Riverwalk, a flat, roughly 7-mile waterfront promenade, include the Muhammad Ali Center, a museum exploring the legendary boxer's humanitarian values and featuring Ali memorabilia, plus films of his bouts. Part of the city's revitalized downtown, the East Market District (aka NuLu) is lined with art galleries and chic cafes. In Cave Hill Cemetery, Victorian-era graves rest amid botanical gardens. Louisville is also a popular gateway to the Bluegrass Region, known for thoroughbred horse farms and bourbon distilleries (many of which offer tours).
