We took a stroll around Old Louisville while giving a tour to some out-of-town friends who were staying in a nearby townhouse for the Kentucky Derby. If you like Victorian architecture, this neighborhood is worth spending a little time walking through.

Old Louisville is an amazing area full of immaculately restored homes. I highly recommend making Old Louisville part of your visit to this interesting city. Taking a tour of the area with Louisville Historic Tours makes it all the better.

The collection of Victorian homes is striking. It definitely worth a drive thru. You also can see that the area is rehabbed with new money.

This area has been revitalized and is a wonderful place to see how the rich and famous lived over a century ago. The architecture is fabulous and the neighborhood a testament to the victorian age. A great walk through a stately older neighborhood.

This walk was beautiful. We walked up and down 3rd Street which had beautiful homes. We also went down a road off by 4th and Magnolia which had a lot of old homes, statues, and beautiful water fountains. Definitely a must see.

A nice place for a walk. The streets around central park have some very nice well maintained old Louisville homes and bed and breakfasts, You could spend an hour or two walking and admiring the real estate.

As someone who lives in Old Louisville and owns a 30 foot travel trailer let me make a few suggestions. Depending on the day of the week you are trying to park, you may be able to park in one of the church lots in the area... More
