Be Prepared for the Unexpected
The Ohio Valley is unpredictable! They say "If you don't like the weather, just wait an hour". Ok maybe it isn't that extreme... But expect hot and humid weather in the summer and colder temps in winter. You never know when it might rain.
This is a neat little bar that has outdoor seating, both on an enclosed patio in the back and right on the side of the building. It's kind of an Irish pub sort of place, and they do serve food here, but I'm not so sure if it's Irish food. They have Irish beers on top, like Murphy's Irish Red, as well as your traditional American beers. Oh, John Courage is also sold here, but I didn't try it. Casual, nothing fancy
Wille B's BBQ is the second...
Wille B's BBQ is the second worthwhile BBQ place. Located near the river, with boat access, Willie B's has some of the cities, no, it has the city's best ribs! And the BBQ is awesome. The prices aren't bad either. Ribs!!!!!!
This is an incredibly beautiful home constructed in the old St. James Court area of Louisville, KY. It was built by Theophilus Conrad, a tanning magnate. It is a Richardsonian mansion constructed of limestone. The interior work on the home is absolutely breathtaking. The intricate wood work on the flooring and the walls cannot be matched. You would be hard pressed to find this kind of craftsmanship anywhere.
The home has been beautifully furnished to match the era in which it was created. The cost of the tour is $5 per person and you will be treated to a fascinating and intimate exploration of the house.
Speed Art Museum
This is Kentucky's oldest and largest art museum. Established in 1925 by Hattie Bishop Speed, it was a memorial to her late husband. Since then, the collection has grown to over 12,000 pieces of art dating from ancient Egypt to the present. The building was designed by Louisville architect Arthur Loomis, and opened its doors in 1927. If you're looking for classical culture here in Louisville, this is the place to start.
