I'll be staying at the Galt House for a conference, and will not have a car. I'm an American living overseas, have not been back to the US in a few years, and cannot wait to go shopping in an actual American shopping mall. I lived near Louisville some years ago, so I am familiar with the city, and there are several places I plan to go while in town.
What are my best options for getting around the city? My destinations are spread fairly wide throughout the city. I know that I can't count on public transportation like I do in Europe. My thought was to rent a car from the airport location for one weekend day, and use a taxi to get to/from the airport. Is that a reasonable option? What would be the approximate taxi fare? I have never been to the Galt House, and know the general location, but it has been a while since I've been in town and don't recall exactly how far that is from the airport. Or is there a rental car company I can walk to from the hotel? (preferred)
Any advice is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
