There’s a new foodie tour in town and it’s not just for tourists. The NuLu Food & History Walking Tour takes a bite of history and bourbon balls in one of our city’s most popular neighborhoods.

The ~1.5 mile trip covers six stops in three hours and unpacks a lot of NuLu history, as well as the neighboring Butchertown area. Even the most knowledgeable Louisvillian will learn something new — like how Kentucky is the beer cheese capital of the world.
