- B-- The Belle of Louisville. I had seen pictures of it before, a restored paddlewheel steamboat that cruises the Ohio River. What I didn't know was that it is one of only five remaining paddlewheel steamboats in the United States.
- O-- "for Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Louisville's original parks system. He moved to Louisville after designing Central Park in New York City."
- S--The Seelbach Hotel is talked up all over town as the swankiest place in the city. Do you recognize the name? It is a hotel featured in the book, The Great Gatsby.
- T--"Thunder Over Louisville, the nation's largest annual fireworks display, and the official kickoff for the Kentucky Derby Festival each year."
The book has also given us a new list of places to be sure and see in Louisville: Churchill Downs, Henry's Ark, Iroquios Ampitheater, St. James Court Art Show, historic Old Louisville, the University of Louisville, and Water Tower park.
That's a big list. We'll see how far we get while living here.
