Have been to Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill several times. Each time my stay was 4-5 days. Love the opportunity to tour the farm, talk to staff members, eat wonderful food and stay in an awesome historical village. Will be returning again in 2019.

Louisville and surrounds; advice for an Australian family? (4 Replies)
Hi we will be in Lousiville next March ( I am planning and excited already!) our two children will be 2.5 and 5. What are some great places to see? Also, would you hire a car and travel around Kentucky for a while? Where would you suggest we visit? The Shaker village of Pleasant Hill looks good. We are planning our trip to the USA and trying to organise internal flights. We will be there for 4-5 weeks and our first stop is Louisville for the mid america truck show. thanks C

Forgot to mention that Southwest Airlines is good for direct, shorter, low-cost flights. They also offer better flexibility in changing/switching flights. Also note: Cincinnati, OH is only 1.5 hours away by car and Indianapolis, IN is 2 hours drive from Louisville.
