Downtown Louisville is made up of five art gallery districts: NuLu, South Fourth Street, Museum Row, West Main and Butchertown. The Republic Bank First Friday Hop is a fantastic way to tour the over 40 art galleries, restaurants, boutiques and shops. And many of the businesses along this hop host specials or live music. The whole tour is roughly a five-mile round trip, and takes about four hours to complete if you spend 15 minutes in each gallery. Dogs are welcome if kept on a leash, and owners must ask galleries for permission before bringing dogs inside.
