Old Louisville Ghost Tour as Recommended by The New York Times

49 reviews
Tours daily from March 15 through November 15; limited dates in the off-season!<br><br>The fascinating historic district known as Old Louisville has gained national exposure because of its impressive Victorian mansions and quirky residents. Developed in the 1880s and 1890s, it attracted the Derby City's bourbon barons, racetrack royalty, and titans of tobacco. This narrated walk is based on books by storyteller David Dominé, who often shows up to guide groups himself. The tales shared involve personal experiences and neighborhood gossip. The New York Times recommends a tour with him as the first thing not to miss during a visitor's "36 Hours in Louisville." <br><br>Specializing in "America's Most Haunted Neighborhood," we depart from the corner of Fourth and Ormsby, at the transitional edge of the neighborhood. If you love old architecture and spooky history, this is the tour for you! If you do not like an up-and-coming neighborhood with a diverse racial make up, this tour is not for you!

This is a must when in the area! Take the walk in the evening if possible. The lights are so pretty. You can see a spectacular sunset against Louisville skyline as well. Stop at Schimpffs Confectionary, have dinner at Yeti both in Jeffersonville and then walk the bridge.

I loved this bridge. Not only is it cool to look at, but having a dedicated place to run walk across the river without having to deal with cars and trucks is awesome. It’s also 1/2 mile across.

Neat bridge for photos (especially at night). Cool architecture. Accessible from waterfront park (which I also reviewed). Access by steps or long ramp. Plenty of room for walkers, scooters, and bicycles. Nice views of the river and other bridges. Also fun to "walk to Indiana." This would also be a great place for a run or jog. This would make a neat (and free!) date night activity. A couple could enjoy waterfront park, walk the bridge. There are tons of swings in the park and benches on the bridge for snuggling and talking. It would be fantastic to take a date there at night when all the lights sparkle and you can see the city skyline. Other activities you could do on this date that are cheap: Frazier history museum (14 bucks a ticket) KMAC (6-7 bucks a ticket), and touring the cities old neighborhoods for impressive homes and architecture (free). Alas, I digress.

It was a beautiful morning to park at the Big Four Pedestrian Bridge Parking lot River Road(Google) with nice restrooms open at 9 AM. We joined other walkers, joggers and bicyclists on the 1/2+ mile crossing to Jeffersonville, IN. Historical signage throughout, classical music in the mid section and views of busy I-65 on the John F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge and the Abraham Lincoln Bridge make for lots of general interest.
