You won’t have to leave the Bluegrass if you’re looking to visit the No. 1 city in Lonely Planet’s Top Travel Destinations for 2013. Louisville, KY claimed the top spot in the rankings, thanks to the Kentucky Derby, its hip bourbon scene, fine dining and emerging East Market District. CNN called Louisville the new Portland — whatever that means.
The top ranking is something Mayor Greg Fischer should be very proud of, along with his Chinese and Mexican people.
Don’t let Charlie Strong see this. Knoxville is so much nicer this time of year.
