Play it like you mean it.

Whether you play all day or all night, Greater Louisville knows how to play up to our strengths. We’re home to the Greatest – Muhammad Ali, bourbon, the cheeseburger, countless music festivals, the Louisville Slugger, Kentucky Derby and so much more. When we come to play, we play hard with a twist of southern charm. Louisville also has a large number of locally-owned businesses, so you can be sure that when you’re out, you’re buying local.

Bites & Bourbon

Loosen your pants — you're gonna be stuffed.

To get the real flavor of Louisville, you’ve got to bite, chew, swallow, sip, and share it.  Greater Louisville is a flambé of dining possibilities from James Beard Award-Winning chefs to a large farm-to-table movement to food trucks for any palate – you’ll never be bored here. Oh, and did we mention we have more barrels of bourbon than people?

From Football to Fútbol

All refs agree, Louisville is for winners.

Sure, we love our horse racing here, but that by no means defines us. Greater Louisville is a true sports town. From our NCAA Champions the Louisville Cardinals to our AAA Louisville Bats to our PGA Championship-worthy golf course to the back-to-back USL Cup Champs, if you’re a sports nut, you’ll love it here. 

All Life is a Stage
