Living in the midwest can sound a little daunting at first. And the term “road trip” has pretty much no meaning to someone who was born and raised in Hawaii. Since living in Indianapolis, we’ve managed to road trip to places like Chicago, St. Louis, Southern Indiana, Dale Hollow Lake in Tennessee, and more.
Living in Indy gives us even more reason to explore nearby cities, which is why Andrew, Chipper, and I decided to take a quick trip to Louisville, KY. This road trip from Indianapolis only took about 2 hours and we left Saturday morning, and returned on Sunday afternoon. This was one of our first trips with Chipper where we needed a hotel so a lot of research went into that.
We wrestled with the idea of renting on AirBnb or finding a pet-friendly hotel. The AirBnb we wanted got booked at the last minute, and it was about the same price to stay at a hotel. If you’re planning a trip to Louisville with your furry baby, a list of pet-friendly hotels can be found here.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from our trip:
We made it! Driving into Kentucky.
After being in the car for 2 hours, Chipper was ready to get out and explore the Louisville Loop.
Hiking sure did work up an appetite for these delicious BBQ pulled pork nachos from Against the Grain Brewery.
If you’re stopping at ATG, don’t forget to try a cold one. Remember to sit inside on a hot sunny day because our beer warmed up real quick (yuck).
The old buildings in downtown Louisville were probably my favorite part about this city.
Us lovers of baseball and softball definitely had to stop at the Louisville Slugger Museum, where every. single. Louisville. Bat. is made (mind … blown).
Here are pictures of Andrew and I swinging one of Derek Jeter’s bats (this is real life, seriously).
Ok, I lied. My favorite thing about Louisville were all of its glorious bridges…
I mean, check that out!?
