THINGS WE LOVE ABOUT LOUISVILLE
Mint Juleps. Paddle-wheel boats. Self-proclaimed birthplace of the cheeseburger. Shopping in the Highlands. Bluegrass--the music and the lawns. Home to the world's largest baseball bat (yes, that would be a massive Louisville Slugger). Churchill Downs. The Hill sisters wrote the "Happy Birthday to You" melody here in 1893. The largest Beatles festival on earth. The Kentucky Bourbon Trail. The way locals pronounce "Louisville" ("Loo-a-vul").
