Bluegrass Indoor Karting helps kick off Hometown Tourist month

Posted: Updated:

Keith Kaiser hung out at Bluegrass Indoor Karting recently as part of the Louisville's Hometown Tourist Celebration.

According to the 2011 University of Louisville's Urban Studies Institute study commissioned by the Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau, nearly 72 percent of visitors came to Louisville for leisure travel.

That is more than 5 million visiting friends and family.

Louisville's Hometown Tourist Celebration has been encouraging people to "be a tourist in their own hometown" .

From May 6th to May 31st, 55 area attractions, 15 hotels and 14 restaurants are offering deep discounts to folks who have a valid Kentucky or Indiana ID, local college ID or military ID.
