This is a great getaway featuring the Woodsongs Radio Show, a little American history, lunch in a castle, a distillery tour and thoroughbred horses everywhere – you’ll even have dinner with a horse.
Come on down to Western Kentucky where Bill Monroe’s Blue Moon is Shining. Tour the Bluegrass Hall of Fame and discover an evening of music called Friday After 5:00. Travel down to Muhlenberg Country then up on the hill to Bill Monroe’s Homeplace. You’ll find music on the river, on the porch, in the barn, at a Private Concert and at Sunday Brunch. Why this tour has more music than most Branson Trips.
Sponsored by Drury Hotels, this tour features a full day of racing at Churchill Downs, where you learn about Kentucky Derby traditions and history. Then there are four separate Bourbon experiences, this is like a Derby Prep School. You learn how to Place Bets, make Mint Juleps, everything you need to know before you come back to Louisville for the real Derby.
The Kentucky Derby is one of America’s most biggest parties as well as one of our most celebrated sporting events. While there is a horse race at the heart of this spectacle, there are many other intriguing traditions. It’s about Fashion, it’s about Bourbon and Horses, Mint Juleps and Riverboats and it’s about time you check it off your Bucket List.
