Welcome to Louisville, Kentucky’s only designated first-class city. Once home to the C-46 Commando cargo plane production factory during World War II, Louisville is now a well-renowned city with much to offer travelers of any age. A humid subtropical climate invites visitors year round. Early spring and late fall will see seasonal extremes in both temperature and precipitation while winter offers sleet and snow, occasion heavy snowfalls, and temperatures that can sink as low as 10°F. Louisville is home to many festivals and events, the most popular of which is its very own Kentucky Derby. The world’s largest annual Beatles Festival, the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival, and the Kentucky State Fair are a few of the many more. With a population of approximately 750,000 people, there is no question that Louisville is a city admirable by all.
