Day 4: Louisville, KY

We left Cincinnati in the late afternoon and arrived in Louisville, KY after driving 2 hours.

Welcome to Kentucky

What set the tone of this part of our trip might have been the condition of our hotel. We experienced a classic example of a worse case scenario for online dating – appearing much better on screen than in reality. Everything seemed outdated and there was a layer of dust on a leather chair in the room, which made us question the overall cleanliness of the place. The Galt House Hotel felt like it had its heyday in the 80s.  The vibe made me think of being way-off-the-strip in Las Vegas.  Luckily, we got to see a nice sunset and had a view of the Ohio River from our room.  The bellhop was helpful and the location was in walking distance to some restaurants at 4th Street Live.

The one restaurant we had on our list to try was Lynn’s Paradise Café featured on a few Food Network shows.  The food was good and the décor was kitchy-crazy.

We spent about 20 min playing with the parking lot animals.

After breakfast, we were ready to move on from Louisville and braced ourselves for another 4 hours to our next stop: St. Louis, MO.
