Churchill Downs

Recommended
Perhaps no Kentucky landmark is more familiar than the twin spires of Churchill Downs, home of the famed Kentucky Derby. Located on 80 acres of "the old Churchill property," Churchill Downs opened in May 1875 with the running of the first Kentucky Derby. Today visitors to Churchill Downs can view the crisp green and white barns and grandstand of the historic track as well as the Kentucky Derby Museum, which organizes guided tours of the facility.
