Welcome to Louisville!! We are proud to serve as the Host city to this edition of the Central Region Tournament! We encourage you to take some time to enjoy what this city has to offer? Here's a few ideas to get you started.

It's the friendly faces and warm welcome of people throughout the community that keep visitors coming back for more of Louisville's genuine hospitality. Louisville is well known all over the world for thoroughbred horses. However this city also has many rolling hills of bluegrass, the mighty Ohio River, outrageous antique shops, quaint art and craft galleries and an wide array of places to eat and have fun. These are just a few of the sights that make Louisville a one-of-a-kind place with universal appeal.

Louisville boasts more than 2,500 restaurants ranging from Asian to Soul.

A culinary tour of Louisville should begin with the Parkland, Russell, Shawnee, Jackson, and Newburg neighborhoods. Here is where you will find the true heart of the 'Ville'. These historic landmarks will provide you with hours of entertainment, good food and warm hospitality!

The city also offers the multi-cultured and exciting area of the Bardstown Road corridor coined Restaurant Row. With quiet cafes, bustling coffeehouses, kitsch eateries and elegant gourmet restaurants, this eclectic avenue demonstrates the wide variety of tastes found in Louisville and showcases some of the city's most celebrated spots.

The city has many one-of-a-kind attractions that will provide visitors with a taste of Louisville's rich heritage. West Main Street is in itself an experience unlike any other.
A stroll down this historic avenue with its bricked sidewalks, mid-19th century architecture and wrought iron decor reveals Louisville's roots as a riverport and distribution center. The buildings along Main Street represent the second largest collection of cast iron facades in the country.

One of Louisville's most widely known products, the Louisville Slugger, is also a favorite attraction. Hillerich & Bradsby's Louisville Slugger Museum & Bat Factory pays tribute to the greatest sluggers in the history of the game with a variety of participatory exhibits.
Another nationally known Louisville product is Louisville Stoneware, handcrafted and painted near downtown Louisville.

No visit to Louisville would be complete without a visit to the Kentucky Derby Museum, the world's largest equine museum, and Churchill Downs, home of the world-famous Kentucky Derby and the famous Twin Spires. The Kentucky Derby Museum features interactive exhibits, replays of past Derby races, an award-winning 360-degree multimedia presentation and tours of the world's most legendary racetrack, Churchill Downs. Visitors can learn how to bet, how to spot a good horse and even have the chance to get close to a retired Thoroughbred race horse living behind the museum.

Louisville has been called "The southernmost northern city and the northernmost southern city". Louisville, Ky. is a unique blend of old and new, charm and sophistication, urban and antique. From the scenic view of the mighty Ohio River to the easy pace of the Churchill Downs backside, Louisville is a recreation resource for visitors of all tastes and ages.

All part of the southern hospitality found here in Louisville…Looavuhl…Lewisville…or Looeyville… your kind of place, any way you say it!
