The Jim Beam Distillery. I can already smell the bourbon.

Looking for a getaway this month? Vegas, Europe, Mexico maybe? Well, how about making a trip to Louisville, Kentucky?

September is National Bourbon Heritage Month (bet you didn’t know that) and what better way to celebrate than partaking in the caramel-hued libation. Combine that with relaxed Bourbon tasting, grilled red meat, sports, and you’ve got yourself a getaway that’s easy on the wallet and not so easy on the liver, but who’s counting.

Make sure the hit up the Jim Beam Distillery (149 Happy Hollow Rd, Clermont, KY) to check out the Jim Beam and Knob Creek manufacturing process, play a round on the Heritage Hill Golf Course (1050 Valley View Dr., Shepherdsville, KY) and round out the night on Bardstown Rd, where you’ll find more bars than you know what to do with. You might even find time to squeeze in a trip to Churchhill Downs (700 Central Ave. Louisville, KY) to place a few bets on the ponies. Drink in hand.
