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.

A nice neighborhood to walk around and explore. It's very green and you don't feel part of a town. Nice Victorian houses to photograph then find one of the local taverns.
