City Information

Bloomington

The terrain and the university are two defining elements that have shaped this Indiana town and its residents. The hills, forests, and lakes provide a valuable and well-protected haven. Hardworking Hoosiers quarried and milled the limestone, which is then used to create spectacular buildings and sculptures around the state and country. Students and professors come to Indiana University from all over the world, bringing their ideas and goals to a community that welcomes everyone.

The lakes and parks are excellent in the summer, with perfect weather and a notable absence of students during Indiana University's summer break.

Dining in Bloomington is next-level thrilling because of the experience that local restaurants produce in unison with their cuisine and beverages – the unique character, friendly service, and attractive ambiance. It's simple to fill your stomach with excellent food, but it's not every day that you can fill your soul with a delicious experience. That makes Bloomington's culinary scene so unique: it's local, varied, and pleasantly satisfying.

To get to Bloomington, you can catch a bus from cities like Indianapolis, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, and New York. The Central Illinois Regional Airport is only a few miles east of the city for air travel.

Louisville

A mecca for fans of sports, Louisville holds the honor of being the birthplace of many sports legends. Even non-sports fans should not miss out on the Muhammad Ali Center, where tourists can learn more about the life and legacy of the legendary boxer. Aside from permanent galleries dedicated to the boxer himself, the museum also features temporary exhibitions on topics such as race and gender equality. Another top highlight from the city is Churchill Downs, where the famous Kentucky Derby is hosted. Contrary to what people might imagine, the racing track is actually quite idyllic, and if there is one place you must visit in Louisville, this is probably the one. If you are looking for a unique experience, head towards the Louisville Mega Cavern. This cavern system was created out of a 19th-century limestone quarry and it features the world’s only underground zip line course.

Three things dominate the food scene in Louisville: barbecue, bourbon, and mint juleps. Some local favorites are Mark’s Feed Store and Feast BBQ. If you are looking for the finest bourbon, the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience is certainly a good call.
