  • Check out the locally brewed fresh coffee at Heine Brothers on Main Street.


  • Stroll over to Bistro 301 on Market Street for upscale, casual lunch fare.
  • Back on Main Street, the Kentucky Museum of Art & Craft will have you browsing the exhibits and purchasing for yourself a hand-woven scarf made of locally grown wool.


  • In the evening, you’ll be delighted as you take in a production at the award-winning Actor’s Theatre of Louisville following dinner at Intermezzo Café and Cabaret, located in the lower level of Actor’s.



  • Where can you see a Rembrandt, a Renaissance dining hall, and a Monet all in one place? Louisville’s Speed Art Museum! The beautiful permanent collection includes art from around the world and throughout history, from ancient Egypt to contemporary American art.  **The Speed is currently under renovation until late 2015 but a temporary exhibit is set up in the NuLu area on Market St. **


  • Lunch at The Café will be a masterpiece of a different kind.
  • Take a tour of nearby Louisville Stoneware to watch artists work and pick out a handmade piece to take home.
