…. I mean …. before you come over for dinner, yeah! That’s it!
It’s going to be a beautiful day! Get out and enjoy it, Internet!
Cave Hill Cemetery
After packet pickup, head up Broadway to Baxter Avenue. Right at the end of Broadway where it intersects Baxter, you’ll see Cave Hill Cemetery. You’ll be running about 4 miles around the perimeter of this cemetery tomorrow and will only see the brick wall surrounding it. You should REALLY REALLY go take a drive and/or walk around inside of it so you can appreciate its beauty and the fact that you aren’t buried six feet under!
It is one of the most beautiful places in town, and I believe they have a daily tour.
Next up, head on over to Cherokee Park. This will be your big hills tomorrow! Go up Baxter Avenue and head onto Bardstown Road. Take a left on Eastern Parkway (US-60) and it will take you straight into the park. This park is one of several in our major park system designed by Frederick Law Olmsted! Should be super beautiful over there if all the leaves haven’t dropped off the trees yet. Note that it’s a 1-way route through the park in a vehicle, so keep to the right.
The Higlands + Lunch!
After you finish at the park, come back out Eastern Pkwy and hit up Bardstown Rd. for some good eats, art galleries, shops and more. I’d suggest parking anywhere on Eastern Pkwy as you leave the park and getting out to walk. Hang a right on B-town Rd and head towards some great restaurants such as Ramsi’s Cafe on the World, City Cafe (in the back of Midcity Mall — which is not a Mall, don’t be tricked by their tomfoolery!), and more! Be sure and stop in to see the cookie lady at Kizito Cookies to carb up! Or, head to the left to have great BBQ at Mark’s or some South American flair at Palermo’s! Too many choices to list! Head either direction and you’ll bump into good food.
