If you didn’t read my original post about our honeymoon, this is it.
We are trying to figure out a halfway point for on the way there and I can’t figure out which city would be better to stay in. We wanted to find something fun to do the night we stay there or the morning after. This can be a nice restaurant, a play, or an activity. I don’t even care if it was like the “world’s biggest cheeseball” lol.
So, what do you think?!

There’s plenty of fun things to do in either,
For Louisville, Fiance and I had a great time exporing the Falls of the Ohio (http://www.fallsoftheohio.org/) and I’ve heard great things about Fourth Street Live (http://www.4thstlive.com/info.cfm), but Depending on where you’re coming from, the I-64 bridge over the Ohio is closed at Louisville and might be something you want to consider in planning your trip (http://www.wlky.com/r/29135361/detail.html)
For Lexington, I’d definatley suggest you check out the KY horse park (http://kyhorsepark.com). I can’t think of more at the moment, but this might be a good link to check out (http://www.visitlex.com/whattodo/)

I have a friend who lives in Lexington. It’s a beautiful city. There are lots of horse type things to do if you are so inclined. I prefer the architecture and history of the city. The downtown area is fun to walk around. One of my favorite places to visit was the Shaker village a little outside of town. http://www.shakervillageky.org/

Louisville has some great modern art galleries you could check out (I suggest 21c, directly off of main street), and the Louisville Slugger Factory is actually pretty interesting to check out (I’m not even a big fan of baseball). The steamboat tours (either on the Spirit of Jefferson or the Belle of Louisville) are interesting and fun. If you’re willing to venture a few miles outside of downtown, check out the shops and unique restaurants on Bardstown road – definitely a favorite destination for the young professionals who live here.
I would recommend the following hotels: 21c (pricey, but modern/interesting), The Seelbach (mentioned in the Great Gatsby, classic) or The Brown (Also classic, really pretty crystal light fixtures, and lots of Derby history). The Galt House is directly on the river and probably has the prettiest views if you stay on one of the top floors.
We’ve lived in Louisville for 2 years and we love taking friends to see all of these destinations when they come to visit. Pick the River City! 🙂

I live in Louisville. MUCH MUCH more to do here. In fact, I hate Lexington. It is a college town with crappy traffic. Louisville has lots of museums, a zoo, tons of great places to eat, and plenty of bars. Trust me…. do not go to Lexington. You WILL be bored. It is really beautiful there, but boring.
