Spring in Kentucky is an exciting time, with opportunities to get outside, get out on the water, and, of course, enjoy all of the festivities surrounding The Kentucky Derby. The two weeks leading up to the big race are always a good time, especially in Louisville, and the entire state seems to celebrate one of our favorite pastimes. This year may be the biggest celebration ever as Louisville will welcome a massive Ferris wheel to its riverfront. The SkyStar Wheel will arrive in Kentucky this spring and you’ll want to start planning a visit now because you only have 5 weeks to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience in the Bluegrass State.
