Know Before You Go

Although Louisville experiences four distinct seasons, summer tends to come early, fall lasts longer, and the relatively short winters bring more rain than snow. March is usually the wettest month, October the driest. Whatever season finds you visiting the city; the trip will be made better by packing the right things to wear.

Spring What to Pack

Spring can have warm days but cool nights can linger. To stay warm, long sleeve shirts or light sweaters are suggested. An umbrella, raincoat and light jacket may also come in handy.

Summer What to Pack

Summer can be very hot and humid. Bright, light clothing is a must.

Fall What to Pack

Fall, like spring, can have fluctuating temperatures between day and night, so pack sweaters or light jackets.

Winter What to Pack

Layering is the key to the winter months. Long sleeves, sweaters, medium to heavy coats, hat and gloves should be included if traveling to the city in winter.
