Start your first morning with a light breakfast at Quill’s Coffee, a roast house that prides itself in its community-centric atmosphere. In addition to handcrafted espresso drinks, pour-over coffees and various types of tea, guests can enjoy yogurt with granola, breakfast burritos, warm kale salad and mochi waffles.
Another nearby coffee shop with major appeal is Please & Thank You, where you can grab a bagel with (regular or vegan) cream cheese, egg sliders, a cup of oatmeal or a breakfast Panini. You can also grab a “never-ending” cup of coffee and check out the small vinyl record collection for sale in the back room.
Get out and get a feel for Louisville with a stroll to the Louisville Waterfront Park. This 85-acre space sits adjacent to the Ohio River and features art installations, numerous water features, an Abraham Lincoln memorial, an operable river steamboat and the Kentucky Grove of native trees along with picturesque views.
Also located near the park, the Big Four Bridge gives visitors a chance to walk across the river to Indiana via a former railroad truss bridge. Spanning more than 2,000 feet, it’s a great way to get your blood flowing, to breathe some fresh air and to see the city from a different perspective.
