Head to the Louisville Waterfront Botanical Gardens

One of the newer additions to Louisville's exciting attractions is the Waterfront Botanical Gardens, located on Beargrass Creek. Strolling along the manicured pathways with water features and stunning garden beds is a lovely outing for those on a romantic getaway to Lousiville and beyond. This is one of the best things for couples to do in Louisville!

They only broke ground for the Louisville Waterfront Botanical Gardens in 2017, so these gardens are still in the beginning phases of growth. Even more interesting, this plot of land was once a former landfill, so talk about turning an old space into a beautiful place where wildlife can thrive and trees can take root. During your visit, there are helpful guides and a welcoming center where you can learn more.

For those planning a romantic getaway, there's no better place to stay than our Louisville bed and breakfast in New Albany. Couples will appreciate the mansion's elegant ambiance, king-sized beds, and gourmet breakfasts. The beautifully restored interiors, including painted ceilings and original woodwork, provide a charming setting for a romantic getaway. We can't wait to host you! Book your lodging today.
