Host City Highlights

Our Host City—Louisville, KY 

Welcome to Louisville! On the banks of the Ohio River, North meets South in a unique blend of style and grace that makes this city an exciting and unique travel destination. Louisville has major city amenities, and offers them with the hospitality and charm that is the hallmark of Southern tradition. Come and see for yourself. Be charmed by the beauty of the city and the friendliness of its people. Louisville is one of the most walkable downtowns in the country, supported by public transportation and a downtown circulator.

With more than 120 attractions, many of them one-of-a-kind, Louisville has something for every age and interest. Discover the history of the city’s beginning, savor the traditions of the Kentucky Derby or learn the age-old process of distilling bourbon. Only in Louisville can you celebrate Muhammad Ali, watch as the legendary Louisville Slugger bats take shape, or take a ride on an authentic steamboat. If the arts are more to your liking, Louisville is one of only a few cities in the United States with a professional full-time opera, ballet, orchestra, children’s theatre, dinner theatre and Broadway series; all of this plus museums, galleries, a world-class zoo, historic homes, confectionaries, ghost tours and a printing house for the blind. Louisville has been named America's Best Cities for Foodies by Travel + Leisure and one of the Nation's Best Local Food Scenes by USA Today.
