Plan a Shopping Day at the Paddock Shops this November

Before the holiday season really begins, why not do a little shopping for yourself? Visit the Paddock Shops this November, and enjoy a whole day of stores, restaurants and plenty of stuff to keep the kids occupied while you shop.

A Day at the Shops

The Paddock Shops are a family-friendly place to go shopping, have a bite to eat and spend a whole day -- or two. After all, no one's counting. You can find all sorts of shops here. Visit American Eagle Outfitters, the Gap, J. Crew, Ann Taylor, Pier 1 or dozens of others. There are a ton of stores here. You can find a nail salon, take the kids to Gymboree and pick up something new to read at Barnes and Noble. There's a lot of stuff to see and do in the Paddock Shops.

The Shops are at the corner of Brownsboro Road and N. Hurstbourne Parkway. You'll find them at 4055 Summit Plaza Drive, just down the road from the Springhurst neighborhood.

Spring Over to Springhurst

There are lots of place to go around Springhurst, from the busy atmosphere of the Paddock Shops to the quiet, natural beauty of E.P. "Tom" Sawyer State Park. There’s a lot to do inside Springhurst, too. This neighborhood was designed to be a quiet oasis for families. There are wide streets, sidewalks for kids to play safely and lots of big green lawns.

Many of the homes here have basements, garages and traditional architecture that never goes out of style. Springhurst is a community with a strong neighborhood spirit, and plenty of amenities for residents. There's a lake in the neighborhood, a pool, a clubhouse, tennis courts and plenty of places to have a picnic or go hiking.

Go take a look at Springhurst this November, and you may decide to shop for more than clothes and holiday gifts when you see the homes here.

See a President at the National Cemetery this November

Lots of Louisvillians will tell you about Abraham Lincoln's history in Kentucky. He's famous for having lived in Kentucky, along with a few other things he did as President, and he's celebrated in the state. But Louisville is home to another President, and if you've never visited him then now is the perfect time to go. See the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery this November, and go see one of Louisville's lesser-known famous Presidential places.

President Zachary Taylor

The national cemetery is where you will find the final resting place of former President Zachary Taylor and his First Lady Margaret Taylor. The entire cemetery is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and includes many other residents. Soldiers who served in six different wars are buried here, people who fought in the Spanish-American War, both World Wars, the Korean War, Vietnam and the Persian Gulf War.

Richard Taylor, father to Zachary, is also buried here. He fought in the American Revolutionary War. Another family member, W.G.L. Taylor, was a captain for the Confederate Army. There's a huge monument to Zachary Taylor here, along with several other features and details that set this cemetery apart from other national landmarks.

You'll find the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery at 4701 Brownsboro Road, right next to the large Indian Hills neighborhood. After you visit the history at the cemetery, get a look at the newer homes in this modern subdivision.

All Hail Indian Hills

You'll see lots of stunning homes in Indian Hills, but there's more to see in this beautiful neighborhood than bright green lawns and gorgeous architecture. Part of Beargrass Creek wends its way through Indian Hills. There are natural rock outcroppings and other features all over the neighborhood that give this community a unique look. There are thick stands of trees in this neighborhood as well. All these features give Indian Hills a natural look, but you'll find plenty of well-manicured properties here. Homes in Indian Hills are surrounded by landscaping and trees, and filled with the extras that everyone really wants.

Indian Hills is right next to the Louisville Country Club, and the homes here are styled to look and feel modern. You can find hardwood floors, large rooms for hosting parties, gourmet kitchens and all sorts of other features that make homes here truly magazine-worthy. Take a look around Indian Hills this November, and get a look at some of Louisville's older history and some of its best newer places to live.

St. Brigid is a Catholic church, but it’s open and welcome to all for this and many other events in the neighborhood. You’ll find St. Brigid at 1520 Hepburn Avenue, in the Highlands.

Hello, Highlands

If you go to the Highlands during holiday season, you're definitely going to be tempted to shop. The Highlands neighborhood is stuffed with interesting little stores, locally-owned businesses and great places to stop and have a bite when you need to re-fuel. For several blocks along Bardstown Road, the Highlands is an amazing place to visit during the day or the night. You may hear live music, drop into a one-of-a-kind coffee shop or buy that must-have item that you never even knew existed before you came here.

Elsewhere in the Highlands, you'll see amazing homes from all time periods. Each one is different, and each has its own details to set it apart. You can find it all in the Highlands, from eye-popping homes that look like mansions to cozy couples' nests built just for two. There are family homes, apartments and all sorts of great places to live. So if you can pull yourself away from Bardstown Road, explore the rest of the Highlands. You may find yourself shopping for a new home while you're here.
