    Bit to Do

    We all know that sometimes, what dad wants most is just some time alone. For Father's Day this year, give him the day off and let him explore Louisville — the way he wants to.

     

    The Urban Bourbon Trail

    Pick up a free passport and the Louisville Visitor's Center or download the app. Dad can visit six participating stops, collect a stamp from each and he'll earn the rank of official Bourbon Country Citizen. This includes an Urban Bourbon Trailblazer T-shirt and an official certificate. The program is free, but he must make a purchase at each location to earn a stamp.

     

    Louisville Slugger Museum

    $14 (or $13 if he's 60 or older!) gets dad a tour of the factory and time to look through the museum.

     

    Horseshoe Casino

    And if gambling gives him an appetite, there's Sunday brunch available for $23.99.

     

    Churchill Downs 

    The first race is at 12:45 on Sunday and general admission is $5.

     

    Kart Kountry

    Dad can take five laps for $22 and then hit the batting cages for a dollar.

     

    XSCAPE Theaters 

    There's lounge seating plus beer and wine to purchase. Some movies dad may want to check out are Warcraft, Captain America: Civil War or X-Men: Apocalypse.

     

    Old Brownsboro Crossing

    This shopping center has a Beef Jerky Outlet, a Cabela's, a Lowe's and a World of Beer. Four times the fun.

     

    Stooges Bar & Grill

    He can kick back and enjoy a beer or try his hand at a volleyball game. 

     

    Cherokee Golf Course

    This is the oldest public golf course in Louisville. There's also a snack bar, putting green and a fishing lake.

     

    The Eagle 107.7 River City Rock Fest

    The KFC Yum! Center will be hosting 38 Special, Eddie Money, Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot, Georgia Satellites, Tommy Tutone and Artimus Pyle on Sunday. No ticket is needed to see Blackfoot and Artimus Pyle, who will be outside on the plaza starting at 3:30.
