The biggest historic district in the country. Take a walk through parks and past old mansions. Central Park has Shakespeare in the Park on warm summer nights.

Nice neighborhood to walk or drive along. Parking was a nightmare due to construction and snowbanks everywhere. Good for a visit once.

We stayed at the DuPont Mansion B&B. Old Louisville and the old Mansion district was a few blocks away so we spent half a day walking the area looking at the architecture. Great place to tour
