When I moved to Louisville for college in August 2014 I was extremely overwhelmed. I grew up in a small town, on a farm where I never had to lock my door.
Then I show up here and listen to airplanes fly over and “walk sign 3rd street”, I should have counted I think I heard it, 1,000 times a day. It was insane.
But instead of being a hermit and waiting to go back home I decided to make a bucket list of things to do in Louisville and looking back I am so glad I did.
My next couple blogs will detail my experiences along the way.
My roommates and I found a warm Thursday night to try our adventure. We had on backpacks with water, sunglasses and gym shoes, and Sidney wore sandals since she didn’t have gym shoes.. but oh well and we went.
The Walking bridge clocks at roughly 2 miles. According to the website, The Louisville ramp is approximately 1/4 mile (1,181 ft.), the bridge itself is approximately 1/2 mile (2,562), and the Jeffersonville ramp is approximately 1/4 mile, for a total round trip of 2 miles.
It was a quick walk about 30 minutes and it was beautiful looking at the water. We made our way over to the other side and walked a couple blocks to our dinner at Adrienne’s.
They were having their 9 cent spaghetti night and we wanted to be apart. Its simple, spend $2 and get the spaghetti for 9 cents. Order a drink, bread, meatballs, or dessert. We enjoyed dinner and dessert.
With our bellies full we made our trek back to Kentucky, and the bridge was nothing short of beautiful at sunset.
If you’re looking for some exercise, great food and a beautiful view, put the walking bridge and Adrieene and Company on your list.
