Five of the attractions are major family attractions and all are within just blocks of the city’s $70 million entertainment district, Fourth Street Live!

If you’re looking to explore your roots, families can visit the city’s historic homes and plantations as well as museums. And if it’s unique and original gathering places that you’re looking for - warmer weather brings Louisville’s two riverboats, to the waterfront for daily excursions.
