It's "the most exciting two minutes in sport" - the Kentucky Derby. Visit the Derby Museum and Churchill Downs in Louisville. More intrepid travelers can go further a field to learn more about Kentucky's famous horse culture.

Spend two days in Memphis to explore all the fabulous sites, tastes and sounds along the mighty Mississippi.
Stop in Paducah, an UNSECO Creative City. Quilters will absolutely want to attend the American Quilt Society Quilt Show & Contest. Non-quilters (can this possibly be??) can explore Paducah on other shore excursion options.
