Louisville Named the ‘Manliest Town in America’ by GQ
Yeah, yeah, Chicago has broader shoulders. But when it comes to the masculine arts — bourbon, baseball, bettin’ the ponies — good luck topping Louisville. And don’t worry, the city’s not just coasting on its history. Lou-uh-vul strikes a balance between the traditions for which it’s justly famous and a right-now vibe that gives the town and its 750,000 residents a kind of courtly swagger.

Zagat names 8 Awesome Foodie Getaways Around the World

3. Louisville, KY

What to eat: This is Bourbon Country y’all. In Louisville, you’ll find an impressive amount of top-notch restaurants featuring both rustic and city-fied food…to pair with your brown spirits of course. Visit some distilleries (Maker’s Mark, Jim Beam, Buffalo Trace) before dining at upscale restaurant, Proof on Main, where dinner could include chickpea-ham fritters or split pea panisse and should include some housemade charcuterie. The infamous hot brown - a turkey, bacon and tomato open-faced sandwich covered in mornay sauce - can be found at the Brown Hotel, where it reportedly was created.
