The Seelbach Hilton Hotel — and Louisville itself — brims over during the Kentucky Derby, held the first weekend in May. For race fans who don't mind the throngs, this is an exciting time to visit Louisville, as festivities abound and a raucous spirit pervades the city. Spring is pleasant altogether, with the city in bloom, as is fall, when summer's heat and humidity have receded, leaving behind blue skies and abundant foliage throughout Louisville's excellent park system and stately old neighborhoods. Mild weather in the winter makes the holidays an enjoyable time to explore Louisville as well.
