By locals pronounced Luh-vull. By far the largest city in Kentucky, and really the only city of any national relevance in the Bluegrass state. Home to outstanding restaurants and great live music. Several bar scenes all throughout the city, stemming from downtown’s 4th Street Live and Main Street, to the Highlands, as well as St. Matthews. Only place in Kentucky where you can party past 1, because bars in the Ville stay open till 4. More museums and art than a city of this size really needs, but too much of a good thing is a good thing. Great college sports town and home to the Louisville Cardinals. Also, the best place to be to really experience the rivalry between UK and UofL considering the huge fan bases that exist here for both teams. Home to Churchill Downs and the greatest two minutes in sports with the Kentucky Derby. Two weeks of festivals and parties building up to the "Run for the Roses". City hosts a swarm of celebrities and political leaders from around the world for the famous Derby event. The Kentucky Derby is a wonderful and exciting time for all Louisvillians. Home to the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali. Louisville's greatest export besides the Louisville Slugger baseball bat; Kentucky Bourbon. Known as one of the largest whiskey and bourbon consuming cities in the country.
If you are lame, a redneck, a hillbilly, a douche-bag, a dork or nerd, or have some kind of a Napoleon complex, you would love Lexington; Louisville is probably not for you.
