Fridays the info center in Old Louisville (in central park) closes early evening so we missed getting more information because we spent so much time walking from the car to the park. We just couldn't stop enjoying viewing each unique home/apartment. The gas lamps, fountains and buildings are just absolute eye-candy. This was nice and relaxing and bonus -- there... More

Town with its own personality!!!! I have collected a great amount of postcards of all these old buildings of this part of town. Great just looking at the designs and all the creativity it took to create all this beautiful area. Was there in 2014

We love historic homes and this was the place. Unfortunately for us, the only tour company and tour guide were not available during the time we were there. We printed a list of the homes, which has some historical information, and did it as a self-guided tour. Beautiful homes and fabulous gardens are well worth the time wandering through this... More

If you'd like to learn a bit more of Louisville history and you like looking at historic homes, particularly of the Victorian era, check out the $20 walking tour offered by the Old Louisville association.

A beautiful area worth the visit. If you take the City Taste Tour of Louisville, which I recommend, this neighborhood is included.

We enjoyed Kentucky Shakespeare and dinner here. This is a great part of town. Central Park is a tad bit scary at night, but otherwise this is a great place to visit.

Seeing the old buildings was amazing. Using an app on phone, having the history behind the buildings was a nice addition.

took a trolley tour of old Louisville. Wanted to walk around, but it was raining. It was so lovely and interesting. The homes were in amazing condition considering their age. Louisville has done a fine job of keeping that part of the city up to par. Just wonderful. They do have walking tours and the next time I go back,... More

My husband and just drove through the neighborhoods because it was raining but a guided tour I am sure would be the way to go. The history I am sure is amazing but it was quite amazing to just look at these homes. It's not necessarily easy to find, but I just used Google maps to the Old Louisville Tavern... More

My husband was bored while I was browsing through the shops. It wasn't what I expected. Lot of stores are closed, shops were ok. It seems they have to build this part of the city. The best thing was the architectural buildings.
