Looking for a new veterinary career?
Louisville has so much to offer!
Louisville is the largest city in Kentucky and it has a little bit of something for everyone. Every May, its racecourse Churchill Downs hosts the Kentucky Derby, a renowned horse race whose long history can be explored at the Kentucky Derby Museum. If baseball is your thing, it is consistently celebrated here at the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, where Major League bats are produced. There seems to be some type of annual festival or event scheduled for every weekend, so you will always have something new to experience or weekend plans! Louisville Metro also has 122 city parks that cover more than 13,000 acres which are great to explore, bike, hike, or walk!
