Vincenzo's downtown Louisville KY
Downtown Louisville continues to have some amazing restaurants, shows, and venues for regional and national events. Locals and tourists alike have plenty to choose from. In this photo, you see Vincenzo’s Italian restaurant.

Not too long ago, 2008 to be exact, Louisville was rated as number one in most liveable US cities. But then our fair city didn’t make even the list for 2009, 2010, or 2011. How can that be because one year later, Louisville takes first place in 2012?

Maybe they just rotate the award around so that everyone can have a turn bragging?

While I love anything that promotes Louisville, that clip seemed to be more a gloss piece on our Mayor. is another site that loves to create Top 10 lists. When they put Louisville at the top of their list, I love it too!

So now when we also take first place in the Top 10 Cities for Affordable Vacations it’s just further confirmation that Louisville is a great city that more people need to hear about.

Rich history, modern culture, free attractions and deep discounts make Louisville, Ky., a prime vacation destination for families.
