How To Spend 3 Hours in Louisville, Kentucky

Three hours exploring Louisville is not nearly enough time to spend in Louisville but let me explain. Last month my daughter and I drove from Toledo, Ohio to Atlanta. The trip had many obstacles causing the ride to be 16 hours. It was very exhausting. Being that it gets dark earlier this time of year, it was even more challenging. I was not looking forward to the drive back. After spending a week in Atlanta it was time to get back on the road. I decided to drive halfway and stay the night in Louisville. I booked an Airbnb and we were on our way.

We arrived in the evening so we decided to check-in and get some rest then explore a bit in the morning. The Airbnb we stayed in was very nice. It was a 2 bedroom loft in the Eastern Market District known as NuLu, meaning “New Louisville.” The area is full of eateries, coffee shops, and specialty shops. You could definitely spend a few days in the area to explore but that’s not what we had

The next morning we got up and back the car back up. Before getting on the road I want to at least visit a local coffee shop. We found that Please & Thank You Coffee Shop was right around the corner so we headed there. When we parked we were right in front of a plant shop called Mahonia. We decided to step in for a few minutes to check it out. As soon as we stepped across that doorway I knew that a plant was coming home with me. This plant shop was so dreamy! They had a wide variety of plants from succulents to choose from. After walking around checking out everything I chose a plant to take home with me.

Next, we walk a couple of doors down to Please & Thank You Coffee Shop. What a cute coffee shop! I ordered one of their seasonal lattes, the Harvest Moon Latte. It totally tasted like Fall in a cup. Sage order the Mexican Hot Chocolate and a slice of zucchini loaf. Both were very tasty. We sat for a bit and enjoyed the good vibes before heading to our next stop

Around the corner from the coffee shop we popped into a couple cool small shops. The first one was Questionable Taste. This shop sold new and used records, vintage clothing , art, and all kinds of memorabilia. They even had a vending machine that dispersed random words of wisdom. Nice!

Next door we stopped into the cutest vintage shop called Sugar Town Vintage. They had so many great vintage finds to pick up. A must stop while in Louisville.

We decided to grab a bite to eat before getting back on the road so we stopped by Bandido Taqueria Mexicana. After checking out the menu we ordered a couple of breakfast burritos and a Flaming Hot Cheeto Elote. Sooo good!
