Kentucky's Scenic River Road

5.1 miles: 0 hours, 7 minutes

From inside the charming city of Louisville, Kentucky's Scenic River Road (also known as River Road) threads its way along the Ohio River past stately homes into the countryside. Green spaces and the blue-gray waters of the Ohio River add jewels to the crown of this attractive city.


Kentucky's Scenic River Road—known as River Road—follows the Ohio River. In addition to the mighty waters parallel to the road, local landmarks include Louisville’s old water tower and the Patriots Peace Memorial. Closer to the outskirts of the community, there will be houses and fields lining the route, allowing visitors to see a more rural side of the area.
