Play hard in Louisville

The sky’s the limit in Kentucky’s largest city, celebrated for its famous sports connections. Home of the Kentucky Derby and the Louisville Slugger baseball bat, it’s also the birthplace of beloved boxer Muhammed Ali.

But there’s more to love than just sports in this gorgeous riverside city. Louisville is a great homebase for road trips to Abraham Lincoln’s birthplace, the world’s longest cave system, and countless other fun destinations. Chances are you’ll be planning a return trip in no time.

Always a great host!! They are my go-to when I need to rent a car. The check in is seamless, the cars are well maintained, and the communication is great. Thanks again!
Rachael K.- April 16, 2022
Experience overall was great. When I had questions I received quick responses and Kyle also reached out voluntarily during my trip just to make sure things were going smooth. The pickup and drop-off instructions were clear and accurate. The car itself was very nice to drive, handles well and was clean. Great on gas. Price point to rent is very reasonable for the experience. I will definitely rent from Kyle again.

Seven’s car was in great condition and worked perfectly. He did a great job of communicating with me and the pickup and drop off process was easy. As an extra bonus, the car came with free car washes so I could easily keep it clean and return it clean.

Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park

Abraham Lincoln was born in a log cabin just an hour’s drive from Louisville. Today, an impressive monument stands on the site of the original cabin, but you can see a replica of both the cabin and the nearby farm where Lincoln grew up.

Mammoth Cave National Park

Mammoth Cave may be the world’s longest cave system, but it’s more than just a cave. With a human history dating back thousands of years, this vast national park is also a World Heritage Site and an International Biosphere Reserve. Go spelunking, hiking, or kayaking amid rolling hills and valleys.

Cincinnati, OH

Just over the Ohio border, Cincinnati is a bustling city on the banks of the beautiful Ohio River. With distinct architecture, vibrant markets and restaurants, and a wealth of museums, Cincinnati is always fun to visit.

This was the first time using Turo, I found the whole process to be extremely easy. Senens car was very clean and new. This is a better experience than I’ve had with any car rental agency in the last 30 years. Senen replied to all my questions quickly. I wouldn’t hesitate to rent from him again

This trip was amazing. Austin made sure everything was in good order and the car was perfect. I had this car for 8 days and only spent $110 in gas. Which is a huge deal when gas prices are almost $5 a gallon. I recommend this service, especially from Austin. He helped make my trip easy and memorable. Thank you Austin.

Had an absolutely amazing trip with Troy’s Jeep! Troy is a gracious and accommodating host who took time to explain all the workings of the Jeep’s top and doors. Troy took the time to send videos and information about the vehicle days before we started the reservation so that we knew what to expect. This is NOT a manual transmission despite how Turo lists it. It is an automatic and extremely easy and fun to drive. We will be renting again at every opportunity. Thank you Troy and Crystal!

Tamika was a great host. She's everything you look for in a host. Our rental with her was for a last minute getaway, and she was very communicative throughout the entire rental, from beginning to end. The vehicle was in pristine clean condition, and was waiting when we arrived. Tamika even made an adjustment for us to pick up the vehicle a little earlier than in the contract due to upcoming bad weather. When we requested to extend the rental, again Tamika was very communicative, and the rental extension went very smoothly. I definitely will rent from her adhesion.

My husband and I had a great trip to Louisville using Russell’s MDX. Russell was a timely and great communicator. The car was delivered on time with very clear instructions. Drop-off was also easy with clear communication and instructions. The car was clean, damage-free, accurately depicted, and we had zero complications. We would recommend Russell’s MDX and would rent from him again in the future without hesitation.

Andrew was very accommodating when it came to delivery and pickup. It turned out to be more convenient than traditional rentals. The Alfa Romeo turned out to be one of the best driving experiences that I have ever had. On a scale from 1 to 10. Our experience was a 10. With the contraction of models in the rental car industry Turo provides experiences with models that would never fit the traditional market. Thank you so much Andrew.

Best Louisville driving roads

Purple squiggle

Louisville and Nashville Turnpike

The Louisville and Nashville Turnpike is a historic toll road that winds from Lincoln’s birthplace to Bardstown, about an hour south of Louisville. With heavenly scenery and historic stops along the way, this drive is about as good as it gets.

1694 off Covered Bridge

Heading toward the Prospect neighborhood, take 42 to 329, which will turn into Covered Bridge Rd, then turn right onto 1694. After passing a golf course, this shaded, windy road takes you through the woods, past a dam, a lake, and, in certain seasons, a waterfall.

River Road

This cruise along the Ohio River sets off from the center of Louisville’s downtown museums, then meanders along the edge of waterfront parks, gardens, harbors, and horse farms. Along the way, stop at Louisville’s historic water tower.
