What you can expect

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Old Louisville, Louisville, KY, USA

With more than a thousand structures spread out over 40 square blocks, Old Louisville is one of the largest historic districts in the United States. This is a transitional neighborhood and you should expect to encounter things you would in any larger city. Panhandlers and homeless people, for example, are often found along Fourth Street at the north edge of the neighborhood. This is a walking tour and we do not enter any structures, as most of the houses in Old Louisville are private residences. We do stop in front of the Conrad-Caldwell House Museum, and you can arrange with them to tour the mansion for a fee.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: The Witches' Tree, Park Ave Corner S 6th St, Louisville, KY 40208

A gnarled tree rose up on the spot where a tree cherished by local witches once stood. When the city chopped down the original tree, townsfolk incurred the wrath of the crones, who sent a tornado to destroy the city in revenge. Visitors often leave offerings on the twisted trunk to make amends.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Conrad-Caldwell House Museum (Conrad's Castle), 1402 St James Ct, Louisville, KY 40208-2127

This is a walking tour and we do not enter any structures, as most of the houses in Old Louisville are private residences. We do stop in front of the Conrad-Caldwell House Museum, and you can arrange with them to tour the mansion for a fee.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Bernheim Mansion Bed and Breakfast, 1416 S 3rd St, Louisville, KY 40208, USA

At the heart of the old Millionaires Row, the Bernheim Mansion features green men arranged around a triple Roman-arched porch. This is just one of the features that sets this impressive Richardsonian Romanesque mansion apart.

Duration: 2 minutes

Stop At: The Filson Historical Society, 1310 S 3rd St, Louisville, KY 40208-2306

Built in 1905, the Ferguson Mansion once counted as the grandest home in the city. A splendid example of Beaux Arts architecture, it today is headquarters for the Filson Historical Society. Visits can be arranged separately.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Central Park, Fourth & Magnolia Avenues, Louisville, KY 40203

Just like its famous cousin in New York City, Louisville's Central Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. With 14 acres of native tree species and shaded walkways, this four-square-block space counts as the green heart of the neighborhood. It's also where Shakespeare in the Park takes place each summer, since 1961, making it the nation's oldest free outdoor Shakespeare event.

Duration: 5 minutes
