Way better than a rental car

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.

Bardstown Road

Foodies from far and wide flock to Bardstown Road, Louisville’s famous “Restaurant Row,” located in the Highlands neighborhood. With destination restaurants and one-of-a-kind shops, this area is the popular hub of Louisville’s nightlife.

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 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.

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.

Joel was great. Very punctual, communicated well, and car was great. Friends and I were in town for the Kentucky Derby and had just a small window of time so if Joel didn't come through, it would've be unfortunate. But he did and we were very satisfied. I would trust Joel with my car reservation again

Car was great! Handled well and was very clean when we got to it. Was also easy to find in the airport garage. Senen is very easy to work with, especially when I had to change my trip due to a changed flight schedule as well as beginning the trip early because the flight got in early. Highly recommend and will use his cars next time I come to Louisville.

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.
