Visit in Spring When Festivals Are Lively

Many travelers book round-trip flights to Louisville during the spring. At that time of year, visitors enjoy pleasant temperatures in the 70s while attending the city's best festivals. The Kentucky Derby Festival takes place over the two weeks leading up to the famous horse race at Churchill Downs, which occurs in early May. Horse lovers and other festivalgoers also can watch hot-air balloon races, a marathon, and fireworks. When looking for cheap accommodations nearby, stay at the Super 8 Louisville/Expo Center or at the Rodeway Inn.

Besides attending the Kentucky Derby Festival, travelers can do a number of other things during a long layover at the airport or when staying in Louisville. Just 3.5 miles away from the airport, the Louisville Zoo features 135 acres of exhibits. Admission costs $15.95 for adults and $11.50 for children. You also could check out the Kentucky Derby Museum, which is open year-round. If you don't want to spend any money, head over to the city's Central Park to stretch your legs with a round of tennis or volleyball. The park is less than five miles away from the airport.
