Things to do in LOUISVILLE with kids

Believe it or not, there is more to Louisville than the Louisville Slugger (although it has it’s own museum, complete with batting cages!) and the Kentucky Derby (although that has it’s own museum too!)

Louisville can hold it’s own as a great city to visit with kids, so why not consider it and try something new? There are educational attractions like the Louisville Science Center which is actually the largest hands-on science center in the state (impressive!). There is water fun with the Atlantic Waterpark, and acres of nature right in the heart of the city with Water Front Park or  Louisville Nature Center.

Want a zoo with a dinosaur exhibit? Only in Louisville! Louisville Zoo lets kids enjoy animals of today, and of the prehistoric kind.  Need a break and want something where you can relax while the kids excel all that energy? With KaZoing, they have those too! (It’s not just a city for kids!)

A city for every season, Lousiville is packed to the brim with kids fun. Why not make it one of your next places to visit with your little sluggers?  Batter up!
