Louisville Welcomes NCTM Regional Conference and Exposition!
Louisville is a city full of endless possibilities. It’s a city located somewhere between “way out there” and “feels like home”. A place known as both the “southernmost northern city” and “the northernmost southern city”. A place so unique, that you can pronounce our name 5 different ways – Looavul, Luhvul, Loueville, Looaville, Looeyville. It’s a place just for you, no matter how you wanna say it.
Walk the streets of downtown, along Museum Row and you’ll find more galleries and museums than you can shake a stick at. And speaking of sticks, you sports lovers can see the world’s biggest bat on display at the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. In all, Museum Row on Main houses nine original attractions all within a six-block radius, now that’s what I call convenience! Since you are already downtown, you may as well stroll along or just hang out at Fourth Street Live, the city’s premier dining and entertainment district.
Live through the fastest two minutes in sports by visiting Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby Museum. Experience original one-of-a-kind cuisine by dining at one of our award-winning restaurants spread throughout four dining districts. Relax as you cruise the Ohio River aboard the Belle of Louisville, a National Historic Landmark.
Be sure to stop by our Visitors Center located downtown at the corner of 4th and Jefferson Streets, where you can pick-up literature, buy souvenirs, purchase discounted attraction tickets, get directions and make restaurant reservations, all with the help of friendly travel counselors.
