Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory
Nothing says “Louisville” like baseball and the famously classic Louisville Slugger. Learn all about the history and production of the iconic baseball bat at the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, located less than 20 minutes from our East End Louisville apartments. Take a guided tour through the factory, see the Big Bat (the world’s largest baseball bat, made of steel, towering 120 feet into the sky), hit with replica bats of legends like Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, and Derek Jeter, and see and touch thousands of signatures from players who signed contracts with Louisville Slugger. Learn more about all the exhibits, purchase tickets, and more on the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory website.
Kentucky Derby Museum
Another iconic festivity of the area is the Kentucky Derby, and, of course, there is the Kentucky Derby Museum where you can learn all about the event and its rich history. Learn about how the world-renowned occasion came into existence, taste and sip Kentucky bourbons, visit the stables, create derby-inspired art, and so much more. No matter your age, you’re sure to find something that fascinates you in this one-of-a-kind museum. Learn more about the exhibits, purchase tickets, and more on the Kentucky Derby Museum website.
When it comes to family entertainment and fun, nothing is more tried-and-true than the Louisville Zoo. Of course, the main attraction are the animals, reptiles, insects, and other creatures from around the globe, but this zoo is so much more than that. In addition to the exotic critters, you can also attend Cinema Safari where you’ll watch your favorite movies on a big screen or, for the 21+ crowd, you’ll definitely want to check out “Brew at the Zoo and Wine Too!” Buy tickets, memberships, and view all exhibits and events on the Louisville Zoo website.
Kentucky Kingdom and Hurricane Bay
“The perfect oasis for your family’s summer escape,” is what is says on the Kentucky Kingdom and Hurricane Bay website, and there couldn’t be a statement that rings more true. Turn your world upside by taking a ride on exhilarating rollercoasters and thrill rides or when you feel like cooling off while keeping that adrenaline pumping, take ride down one of the exciting water slides and other water “rides”. Whether you’re 3 years old old or 63 years old, you’re sure to have a smile on your face the entire visit. Check out all the rides and events this double theme park has to offer on the Kentucky Kingdom and Hurricane Bay website.
Kentucky Science Center
