Really, really psyched to be going to the Forecastle Festival this year in Louisville, KY. Where should we sleep at night? And what shouldn't we miss in Louisville?
My boyfriend and I are (hopefully) going to Forecastle Festival
this year, July 13-15. We're pumped, but also broke, and I'm trying to find the best lodging accommodations that won't break the bank. The festival website has a short list of hotel recs, but are there any hostel-style gems in the area (or even just inexpensive hotels where you've had a pleasant experience)? We considered camping at the KOA but that seems like a no-go. Google has provided the option of sleeping in a woman's garage for $10 and some chores, yet somehow...
We've also never been to Louisville, so we're kind of interested in inexpensive, potentially quirky/historical landmarks and must-sees during the times we're not at the Waterfront. The boyfriend is interested in the wistful and storied history of the Louisville Slugger, but otherwise we have nothing specific on the agenda. Anything that delights you about Louisville would be a great addition to our list. Thanks everyone!
[Oh, and I'm currently making a mix CD to persuade him it's gonna be great, so if you're familiar with the festival/bands playing this year and have any song recs, feel free to throw those in too. =)]
