TATTOOS

Louisvillians can certainly do the style thang with the best of ‘em . . . but there’s also a vibrant counterculture of skateboarding pierced-and-tattooed neo-punk artsy-fartsy poetry-slammers.

UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY

We’ll be honest: We only put a UK logo in here because so many Louisvillians rooted for the Wildcats, the 2012 NCAA Division I Basketball champions.

POSSIBILITY CITY

Why is Louisville called Possibility City? Because with a little talent, a little passion, a little imagination, and a little work, just about anyone who wants it, can lead a rich and fulfilling life here.

THE DERBY HAT

From fascinators to bowlers, straw fedoras to extravagantly plumed Derby chapeaus, the Oaks and Derby attract men and women’s hair like no other horserace on earth.

FALLS CITY BEER

Brewed in the style of Falls City Pale Ale from the 1930s, Falls City began as a craft beer in 1905 and recently returned home — like many others who’ve realized the hops are always greener here.

MUHAMMAD ALI

The world’s most celebrated athlete, humanitarian, and all-around icon: Nobody embodies the spirit of possibility more than the greatest, Muhammad Ali.

This isn’t just where you’ll find the best baseball bats on earth, it’s where you’ll find the biggest baseball bat on earth, all 120-towering-feet of it.

DERBY PIE®

One of two mandatory dining staples in Possibility City, a slice of Derby Pie after a Hot Brown is considered de rigueur by residents and visitors alike.
