Bowling just became a whole new game. First opened in Hollywood, California, Lucky Strike Lanes' management envisioned a bowling alley celebrities would want to patronize - with top shelf food and ever-changing artwork showcased at the end of each lane. The idea proved popular, and Lucky Strike Lanes now has alleys across the country. The menu is surprisingly gourmet for a bowling alley; revitalized from the typical beer and nachos that may spring to mind at the mention of bowling alley food. The mouth-watering menu includes appetizers, salads, gourmet pizzas, burgers, sandwiches, desserts, and even all-day breakfast. Please note that guests are expected to adhere to a dress code.

KentuckyShow! is the brainchild of Sharon Potter, a Kentucky transplant who became fascinated with the people, customs, cities, towns and everything else here. After some fundraising and years of work, she and her team produced this 30-minute show as an homage to the state. It plays every day at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, just ask the information desk for directions to the screening room.
A world-renowned racecourse commemorating Henry Churchill, the Churchill Downs is the holy grail for aficionados of horse racing. Spread across more than 140 acres (56 hectares), the track rekindled Louisville's hope for horse racing after two of the city's favorite venues were shut down. Since its inception in 1875, the Kentucky Derby has prospered on this track garnering many raves from jockeys and equestrian sports lovers from across the globe. Featuring more than 70 luxury suites, the interior of the site is decorated with murals of Kentucky Derby winners thus celebrating the augustness and exclusivity of the sport. A museum, stables and a clubhouse are also a part of the Thoroughbred racetrack's extensive layout.
