LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville, Ky. has been named one of Lonely Planet's "Top U.S. Travel Destination for 2013," according to a news release.
"Bourbon reigns in Louisville," states LonelyPlanet.com. "This is the traditional jump-off for the Bourbon Trail; with bourbon's current wave of popularity, new upstart micro-distilleries, including some in and around Louisville like the small-batch Angel's Envy, are giving the old names in bourbon a run for their money."
Lonely Planet described Louisville as the "new Portland," citing the city's neighborhoods to its bourbon-connection as among the reasons for the designation.
"If you haven't been to Louisville in some time, now is the time for you to plan a visit," said Jim Wood, President and CEO of the Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau. "The city's tourism product has seen incredible growth over the last several years, and 2013 will be no exception with the return of bourbon distilleries to downtown's Whiskey Row."
"Each year we shine a light on 10 places in the U.S. that travelers should add to their wish lists for the coming year," said Lonely Planet's U.S. Travel Editor Robert Reid. "Our U.S.-based team of editors and authors in Lonely Planet's Oakland, Calif. office compile a list of U.S. destinations that are prime for the next year, and Louisville topped the list for 2013."
