There's also Widow's Walk ice cream, a coffee shop, and bicycle rentals right across the street from the park.
2. Hop into a horse-drawn carriage downtown.
You may have seen these carriages in the streets of Downtown Louisville. Louisville Horse Trams provides beautiful Cinderella-style carriages that'll make your dreams come true. A carriage ride is the most romantic mode of travel after an evening of eating and drinking.
