Famous Sips, Bites and Sights!
A few years ago, a
A few years ago, agood friend of mine, Timothy Miller, wanting to explore the possibility of starting his own tour company, took me and another friend on what Tim would eventually call his “Land of Lincoln” tour. Without a doubt, it was one of the best tours I have ever taken! Basically, I was treated to a private tour by one of the best tour guides in the business. Not only did we laugh nonstop, and eat all the pie we could get our hands on, but I was emotionally moved by the experience of exploring Lincoln’s life from birth to death.
We all met up in Louisville, eager to take in this iconic city noted for the Kentucky Derby, baseball and Bourbon! Tim had arranged for us to take a sightseeing tour of the city, but not just any tour but one that I rave about to this day! Little did I know we were going to spend the next few hours having the time of our lives! The bus, hosted by two hilarious ladies, was decorated like grandma’s parlor with lights, bunting, tablecloths and an array of bourbon bottles that would make a hillbilly cry.
Candy is Dandy!
Boubon shop…more whiskey…more food dipped in whiskey…
On to the Chocolatier...and more bourbon...and pie!
Louisville's Victorian mansions
Some of the GORGEOUS Victorian homes in historic Louisville! Lucky for us we got to walk around to fully experience this lovely street and park while enjoying the cool, fall air. It was a rainy and overcast day, but we didn't mind a bit!
"Race? What race, was there a race…?" Our last stop of the day was Churchill Downs and needless to say we were feeling no pain! It had gotten quite rainy, but we could have cared less especially when we learned we were just in time to see a real horse race! I knew that this would be a once in a lifetime experience for me and I was on cloud 9! What a fantastic day!
He didn't win but hey! the track was wet!
Next time: On to the Land of Lincoln!!
