Louisville was recently named one of the top eight destinations to visit in fall colors in the United States.

Below you will find some of the best places to visit when you are in Louisville this fall, but before you visit our great city, be sure to get your vehicle check out for the fall months by our professionals here at Hyundai of Louisville!

Belle of Louisville

The Belle of Louisville was built in 1914 and is the oldest operating steamboat in the United States and is also one of the last remaining vessels in the area. There are three floors of this steamboat to explore, and visitors can check out the engine room on the lower levels as well as dine and dance in the enclosed ballroom and relax overlooking the river on the open-air deck. We suggest booking a dinner cruise so that you can catch a colorful sunset or go during lunch so you can see the riverside fall foliage in full light. If you cannot book your ride on the Belle, you can always hitch a ride on her sister riverboat, the Mary M. Miller, named after the first female steamboat captain in history!

Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest

There are over 16,000 acres to roam at the Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest, which means there is an adventure waiting for everyone in this area located south of Louisville. In addition, forty miles of hiking, biking, and trails are available through the valleys, ridges, and hollows of this Frederick Law Olmsted planned park. You will only need to walk two miles to see the famous Forest Giants created by famed Danish artist Thomas Dambo. These sculptures are larger-than-life and are temporary fixtures at Bernheim, and they are a must-see when the fall months hit.

Cave Hill Cemetary

Cave Hill Cemetary is another arboretum with a little bit of a spooky twist. It’s located in the eclectic Highlands neighborhood. It is a 296-acre Victorian burial ground that will offer patrons beauty, history, and a ton of trees to check out when Louisville hits the fall. Cave Hill is also the city’s largest cemetery. It is the final resting place of legendary Kentucky figures such as Colonel Sanders, Muhammad Ali, Pappy Van Winkle, and George Rogers Clark.

Louisville Ghost Tours

You can find these just south of downtown Louisville in Old Louisville, one of the city’s most historic neighborhoods. The area is home to a large selection of Victorian-era mansions which span over forty-eight city blocks. Old Louisville is filled with a ton of architectural beauty, a ton of history, and a reputation for some paranormal activity. The ghost tour is a 90-minute walking tour that will lead you through the entire neighborhood and past some frightening local favorites, including the Witches Tree, Pink Palace, and other haunted homes. You can book these tours online between  March 15 – November 15, and they kick off nightly starting at 7:30 pm.

Hermitage Farm

Located just east of Louisville is the town of Goshen. Here you will find the great pastures of the Hermitage Farm. It’s here where visitors will be able to celebrate Kentucky’s unique agricultural heritage and signature industries. Be sure to grab a jacket and book a thoroughbred, bourbon, or sport horse tour before embarking on a picnic lunch out on the farm or dinner inside the luxurious Barn8 Restaurant, which offers sustainable and organic farm-to-table dining. Be sure also to check out the new Art Walk Experience that will allow visitors to stay after dark to see an awe-inspiring version of the farm’s landscape and nature artistry of light, color, and sound.
