Senior Olympics in Late June

I am visiting Louisville in late June as a spectator for the Senior Olympics. Many of the events are in the Cherokee Park area near I-64. Can you recommend any hotels which are nearby in short driving distance? Also, any recommendations for activities for a family with two children in their late teens.

The park is in a nice residential area of Louisville. I hope they do a good job posting directional signs, because you can get majorly lost and turned around there. A good deal of Cherokee Park is covered by a 3 mile, one-way loop which is half for pedestrians. You will probably park off Lexington Road at the entrance....right now, they are redoing that whole area, let's hope it's finished. Any downtown hotel will be a 10 min commute except at rush hours. The Breckinridge Inn would be fairly close as well as the Extended Stay and Baymont Suites on Dutchman's Lane. Another safe bet would be the Ramada Downtown North, which is on River Road and Zorn Ave. I would not recommend that you stay at a hotel off 64 in the Hurstbourne Lane area. The traffic out there is a nightmare all the time.

If you are anywhere near Cherokee Park with kids in their late teens, you will have to start walking down Bardstown Road. Lots of small stores, coffee shops, ice cream places, restaurants, and generally hip stuff.
