This Charming Town Near Louisville Is Perfect For A Day Trip

Given that Louisville is the largest city in Kentucky, every other town is technically smaller than ours. As much as we love the excitement of a bigger city, there is definitely a certain appeal of a charming town, with its own historic downtown and plethora of things to do. Just 45 minutes south of Louisville is the city of Elizabethtown. This lovely town offers plenty of activities for a day (or more) trip, making it the perfect getaway near Louisville.
