Visit the Beach This September
Summer is about to end but there is time and enough sunshine for one last beach day before you trade in your summer shorts for winter boots. You don't have to head to the ocean or even get very far away from Louisville to visit a beach. There’s one right in LaGrange at the LaGrange Quarry.
The LaGrange Quarry, more formally known as Falling Rock Park, is surrounded by natural limestone. The way that limestone naturally filters water makes the water in the quarry incredibly clear and beautiful and this is a favorite swimming spot.
There's also a small beach and plenty of natural scenery. You can find hiking trails if you want to go exploring and you might want to go snorkeling. There are lots of pretty fish in the water you might want to get a look at.
But just because this is a swimming spot does not mean there are lifeguards. This is not a swimming pool, it's a lake. Children are not allowed but this is not a party spot, because drugs and alcohol are not allowed, either. There are places to grab a bite to eat nearby and the entire rest of LaGrange to explore. Take a short summer trip just outside Louisville and spend a day at the beach and the lake before the season is over.
