Woke up early and decided to run through this neighborhood. The houses are amazing, the real gas lanterns lining the street are incredible. Made me want to move to Louisville.

This is obviously a neighborhood which was once grand, then at some point went through a downturn, and now is being revitalized. I enjoyed walking around to see many of the mansions which have been refurbished.

Was raining the weekend we were in Louisville, no umbrellas, so could only drive thru the area. Love the old construction and wished we could have done a walking tour. If this is your thing don't pass it up.

We did not take the official walking tour, but briefly walked around before we headed out for lunch. The homes are gorgeous, the fountain a great photo op, and we got to see the pink building, which was formerly a "gentlemen's club" back in the...More

It was out 24th wedding anniversary and I planned this whole trip around her. This was the first stop and made everything else, such as the tour of Conrad/Caldwell Castle, even better. Got in the summer but the weather cooperated with us during our weekend...More

Visiting Old Louisville was part of the Trolly Ride we took. I don't think I would go back just to walk around. Nice houses, but just take the trolly and you will see enough... unless you love old houses.
