The legacy of the river runs deep.

From the Shawnee who hunted and fished it to early European settlers who depended on it for commerce and supplies, the mighty Ohio River sustains life and Louisville. It remains the heart of our city: the epicenter of the world’s Bourbon and horse racing industries, a city that fosters entrepreneurship, medical breakthroughs, and new technology . . . and a city that proudly welcomes visitors, families, and businesses alike.

Come explore history.
Or simply make some.
