Tour Historic Churchill Downs November 16
Take a Tour of Churchill Downs this November to see all the stuff that most people never see, watch some races and have a day at this historic track. Churchill Downs is home to the Kentucky Derby and it’s one of the oldest landmarks in Louisville. This November, you can ride around Churchill Downs in a golf cart. Who wouldn’t want to do that?
Golf Cart Tour
This is a premium tour experience where you'll spend four hours seeing Churchill Downs and hearing about some of the cool history here. You'll get a look at the infield, where the party is always happening, and see some of the other sights here as well. You'll go into the fine dining rooms, the Clubhouse and the Kentucky Derby Museum that's right next door.
Spend the afternoon in the Roses Lounge to watch the races and have a little lunch. Tickets cost $150 per person. This special event lasts from 9 am to 1 pm at Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby Museum. That's at 704 Central Avenue. Churchill Downs is hard to miss. Just look for those world-famous twin spires as you approach. Churchill Downs is adjacent to this pretty Wilder Park neighborhood, a historic community that was once a racetrack, too.
Drive Through Wilder Park
After you tour Churchill Downs, take your own self-guided tour of the Wilder Park neighborhood. This place has a long history that dates back to the mid-1800s. You can still see the history in the buildings that remain here, pretty homes in bungalow styles with multiple bedrooms. The homes here sit on shady streets that surround the park and community center that's in the middle of the neighborhood.
Wilder Park is mostly residential and mostly made up of pretty homes with features like hardwood floors and arched doorways, fireplaces and recessed lighting. This neighborhood is next to the famous track and close to a huge selection of shops and restaurants in nearby downtown Louisville and the Highlands. Take a good look at Wilder Park this November and you may find that this community has everything you need.
