Review of Old Louisville

Walking around the tree lined squares and leafy lanes with the fountains and gardens so beautifully kept, imagining how it would have been years ago - and we're pretty sure not much has changed there - it was so peaceful, like being in a time warp and made us feel like we were in Frances Hodgson Burnett's "The Secret Garden". It was obvious that the people who live there love their homes and surroundings and take great care and pride in them. Not very impressed with The Visitor Centre - we wanted to have tea and a cake in the area and the place she sent us to was awful - run down, grubby and salubrious is being generous.

Just walk around and enjoy the houses. Many are now apartments but they still retain the glory.

We took a walk around the neighborhood after breakfast. I am so glad we did. The houses are amazing!

We have been to several zoos around the country and this zoo in Louisville, KY is as good as they come!

A great way to see a bit of Louisville outside of the city and tourist attractions, and gives you a sense of the history.
