Don't disregard it when you're looking for your next couple's trip destination — it might just become a spot of your most fond memories.

Unique things to do

For something adventurous but not too demanding, head to Waterfront Park. Have a picnic or simply wander one of the many walking paths together. The view from the bridge is spectacular too, so be sure to fit that into your park agenda.

For something a little bit more unique and adventurous, try a hot air balloon ride over the Louisville area. You'll create beautiful memories as you and your partner look onto the stunning landscape below. Xclusive Balloons offers an hour-long ride for two that's complete with champagne. Toast to your partner and your love from hundreds of feet in the air.

On the complete opposite end, you could head underground for a physical challenge. Explore an aerial ropes course or hop on a zipline at Louisville Mega Cavern. You'll be sure to have a blast as you navigate the thrilling options at the world's only fully underground aerial ropes challenge course.

If you're visiting during the summer months and want to try something old-fashioned, head just 20 minutes from Louisville across the Kentucky-Indiana state line and catch a drive-in movie at Georgetown Drive-in.

Where to drink, eat, and stay

Combining drinks and bowling sounds like a delight, and Pin + Proof is a speakeasy that does just that. Try one of their exciting cocktails while knocking down some pins on one of four professional bowling lanes. If you'd rather listen to live jazz while sipping your drinks, Hell or Highwater is the spot for you. Live music, swanky lounge-style seating, and a set up of library shelves filled with books create an intimate ambiance as well as a fabulous backdrop for your photos.

If you're looking for an entire meal, then check out Le Moo. It's a steakhouse with a romantic and elegant atmosphere, and delicious food. Another fantastic spot is River House. It's located right along the river, meaning you'll dine and sip with lovely waterfront views.

Finally, consider checking in at the 21c Museum Hotel Louisville. As the name suggests, it's a contemporary art museum and boutique hotel all in one. This unique place also offers a couple's package providing you with chocolate-covered strawberries and a meal voucher. If you want something antique and charming, consider The Pepin Mansion Historic Bed & Breakfast for a cozy stay.
