Louisville, Kentucky
 
 
     Louisville, Kentucky boasts many interesting areas which entice visitors from around the country, and even around the world. These attractions call to people to come, enjoy the area, and spend some money. 
 
     One of the most famous tourist attraction is Churchill Downs. Churchill Downs hosts many races during the year, the most famous is the Kentucky Derby. Racing officially started in this location in 1875, and has been the site of the Breeder's Cup Race several times. Churchill Downs was designated a part of the National Registry of Historic Places in 1986. Its Twin Spires and Clubhouse are well known in the Kentucky area, as well as throughout the world. Sometimes one can get lucky enough to watch the horses work on the practice tracks, and you can even get a glimpse of these very expensive horses while driving along the city streets. Whether you see the Downs from outside or in, it definitely is a place not to miss when next you visit Louisville.

Mega Caverns is a sure stop while visiting Louisville. The Caverns provide a tram visit to this man-made cavern, encompassing 100 acres. The area was mined from the 1930's-1970's. The site was purchased by a private owner, and the cavern has been filled in to create what is seen today. The natural climate controlled environment maintains an average temperature of 58 degrees, and is perfect for storing and many people house cars, boats, and other articles here. The city of Louisville houses rock salt here, so that the city is ready for a massive amount of ice. And the cavern served as a shelter during the Cuban Missile Crisis, being equipped to house 50,000 important people of the country. And if that wasn't enough, this is also the site of an underground Zip line, 5 of them to be exact. You can zip along totally underground, if you are not too scared. So be sure to check this one out before leaving Louisville, and get ready for an very interesting time. And maybe you will meet someone who just might eat a worm for you!

     And then there are those places not listed on the tourist maps, not listed as attractions, and are seldom visited by the regular tourists. But we are not your regular tourists! So of course, our stops included several of the local cemeteries. To say we were impressed would be an understatement. So take a look at two of the local cemeteries we dropped in to visit. And the next time you are in town, be sure to stop in for a visit. We are sure you will be impressed as well.
 
 
Calvary Cemetery
 
     This cemetery was spread over a very large area, and was extremely well maintained. A Catholic Cemetery, this was the burial site of many of the Diocesan priests from the area. Established in 1921, it is the largest Catholic Cemetery, and has seen more than 50,000 internments.  No stone was pushed over, no grass grew up past the stone, and no other cemetery gave the sense of peace and serenity. In fact, it was more like a park than a cemetery. The winding drive into the cemetery, past the lake with geese, around tables just inviting one to picnic during the afternoon. We drove around and enjoyed this lovely cemetery, and we found the burial site of Colonel Sanders, of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame.

Saint Louis Cemetery
 
     Driving around this cemetery, one thing that strikes you is the fact that there is barbed wire around the top of the fence, all around, and including the wall that separates this cemetery from the adjoining cemetery. This cemetery is very well maintained, and contains some very remarkable stones. The original cemetery opened in 1811. When the Saint Louis Church was relocated in 1831, the interned were moved to the Catholic Section of Western Cemetery. The graves were than moved to this location in 1867. Known as the "Irish" Cemetery, this cemetery holds the remains of many different heritages of Catholics.
