We walked in the area in January. Central park was a bit gray. Walking in the neighborhood is nice but few minutes can be enough. It was pretty boring for our kids.

We were there on a holiday and the weather was inclemate, so we just drove around. I have to say that the old homes were charming and I hope to go back and do some serious touring.

Don't miss this! What beautiful homes! The architecture! You could just imagine life around the Civil War. Some of the old houses near the college were turned into frat houses or college dorms, but they were kept in good condition so it didn't detract from the beauty of the area. We loved it!

Old Louisville is a must see for those who are interested in Victorian architecture and charm. Strolling through the older neighborhoods allows a glimpse into the past. The grand mansions with their ornate architectural designs are beautiful.

On our way to do the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, we decided to do a quick stop and check out this neighborhood as we had heard of the lovely Victorian type houses. The houses are huge and beautiful. Makes you wonder and imagine how the elite lived in those times. Pretty authentic neighborhood. Glad we stopped by and enjoyed the well-kept,... More

We always take visitors to Old Louisville to see how grandly the early Louisville monied folks lived. The houses all around are such treasures to look at and imagine the insides.
