Louisville, Kentucky, home to over half a million people, is steeped in history.  The classic Louisville Slugger, the official bat of Major League Baseball, originates here.  The Old Louisville neighborhood is home to the largest collection of preserved Victorian architecture in the nation.  Visitors can take a ride on the Belle of Louisville, the oldest operating steamboat in America.  The city produces over one third of the world's bourbon; the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and Urban Bourbon Trail offer fascinating insight into the rich tradition of bourbon distillation.  Speaking to more recent history, the Muhammad Ali Center tells the life story of the famous boxer.  In the midst of these historical and cultural attractions, Louisville's greatest claim to fame is arguably the Kentucky Derby.  Often called "The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports," this first leg of the Triple Crown is held at historic Churchill Downs each year.
