    Lively Louisville—perfect for a happy vacation

    Louisville is Kentucky’s largest city and sits on the Ohio river along the Indiana border. It is a vibrant city full of interesting and varied attractions, from museums and art galleries to theme parks, boat trips and the famous Muhammed Ali Center, making it a great family-friendly destination. The city is also a popular location for horse lovers, who flock here in April for the Kentucky Derby Festival. Louisville vacation rentals are perfectly located in and around the city, whether you want easy access to the many attractions, bars and restaurants, or prefer a more peaceful getaway nestled in the leafy suburbs.

    Family-friendly fun in Louisville

    Whether you want to take a leisurely cruise up the Ohio river in the Belle of Louisville, the city’s famous steamboat, or an active hike across the trails of the 550-acre Tom Sawyer State Park, Louisville offers activities to suit your pace. Family fun is key here, with educational visits to the Kentucky Science Centre, where the kids can enjoy hands-on exhibits and IMAX films, or the white-knuckle rides and water slides in the Kentucky Kingdom. Or simply take the family on a stroll around the old city to soak up the famous south-eastern architecture and hospitality.

    Art, music, and sport in Louisville

    Louisville vacation rentals are perfectly situated for you to access the many attractions the city has to offer, easily and quickly. Sport is important in Louisville, with museums dedicated to baseball and the Kentucky Derby, not to mention boxing with the Muhammed Ali Center. Meanwhile, art lovers will adore the KMAC museum full of regional art and the Speed Art Museum, Kentucky’s oldest museum of art. And to keep the kids entertained, there’s the Louisville Waterfront Park, with its many water features, play areas and public art. This is also home to the popular three-day music, art and environmentalism festival in July, supporting the thriving Indie music scene that Louisville has become famous for.

    Sub-tropical climes in Louisville

    Louisville has a humid sub-tropical climate with four distinct seasons. Snow is common in the winter, while summers are usually hot with temperatures reaching the high 80s. The city is popular with visitors from April through to September, when the weather is hot and sunny, broken with the odd bout of refreshing rainfall. Summer is also the perfect time to explore the many surrounding recreational parks and trails, such as the Louisville Zoo and the Falls of the Ohio National Wildlife Conservation Area, or to simply enjoy the city waterside from one of the boat rides along the Ohio River.

    Louisville—a city surrounded by nature

    Louisville is situated along the border between Kentucky and Indiana. Although in a southern state, Louisville is influenced by both Southern and Midwestern culture, as reflected in the city’s varied and interesting architecture. Much of the city is located on a very wide and flat flood plain, surrounded by gently rolling hills on most sides. Louisville vacation rentals cover both downtown cityscapes and peaceful verdant countryside on the outskirts.
