Editor’s note: only the Louisville, KY section has been highlighted here. Click here for the full article.
If you’re seeing colors around Louisville, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve sampled too much of the local bourbon. You don’t even need to leave Kentucky’s largest city to enjoy the changing of the seasons. A stroll around the gas-lamp-lit St. James Court and the Old Louisville rows of Victorian-era homes is made all the more atmospheric by the colorful fall foliage.
Louisville has 50 miles of bike trails along the Ohio River and Floyds Fork, with more in the works as the city completes the long-planned 100-mile Louisville Loop path. A short drive south of the city takes you to Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest, with over 40 miles of trails open to walkers and bikers, and a canopy tree walk that takes you 70ft up into the trees themselves.
