Take Your First Hike of the Year at the Falls of the Ohio January 1

January 1 is the first day of 2018, so what better way to celebrate than with the First Day Hike at the Falls of the Ohio? This event starts in the afternoon, which means you’ll have plenty of time to sleep in (and sleep off New Year’s Eve) before the hike begins.

First Day Hike

During the First Day Hike, you’ll explore the upper fossil beds at the historic Falls of the Ohio. You’ll learn more about Devonian sea life, animals and plants that existed here thousands of years ago. Feel free to bring along your own binoculars, because there will be opportunities for bird-watching as well. The hike lasts 90 minutes.

First Day Hike at the Falls of the Ohio

It’s free to attend the First Day Hike, but you will need $2 for parking. The Falls of the Ohio State Park is at 201 West Riverside Drive, and the hike begins at 1 pm. From the historic fossil beds on the bank of the river, you’ll have an amazing view of downtown Louisville.

From across the water, you can see some of downtown's beautiful attractions. The Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, the famous Muhammad Ali Center and Waterfront Park are all along the river. After you hike around with history, go see what modern life in downtown Louisville is like.

Start 2018 in Downtown Louisville

Downtown Louisville is the center of culture, cuisine and fun for the entire city. Many of Louisville's most famous attractions can be found in this neighborhood, including Fourth Street Live. Slugger Field is here, as well as the downtown theater district where you can find the Louisville Palace. People come to this community every day to shop, to visit museums, to eat incredible food, to people-watch and to work. But lots of people also live in downtown Louisville. Because in addition to everything else downtown has, this neighborhood is also a community full of people and families of all types.

The housing you'll find downtown is unlike the real estate anywhere in Louisville. The downtown community is full of condos with incredible views, lots of space and access to all the best of the city. Live in an historic building downtown, like the Henry Clay, or in a modern structure built out of glittering glass, like Waterfront Park Place. Downtown condos come in all sizes, from places suited to active singles to sprawling homes with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms.

Downtown living offers the best access to some of the best of the city, and the real estate gives you options you can't find in other neighborhoods. Go exploring in this area at the beginning of 2018, and see where the rest of the year leads you.
