Food Truck Sunday at Frankfort Avenue
There are certain streets in Louisville that have a reputation for being packed with awesome restaurants and shopping spots. Bardstown Road in the Highlands, for example, is one long strip with tasty eateries and boutiques on either side. It's not uncommon to see Bardstown Road packed on a Friday night, the sidewalks jammed-packed with hungry folks looking for a bite to eat or eager shoppers. When it comes to the Clifton area of Louisville, the road with a similar reputation is Frankfort Avenue.
Much like Bardstown Road, Frankfort Avenue is a very hip place to be. The big draws to both Bardstown Road and Frankfort Avenue are the small businesses. Neither would be so popular if they were lined with big chain restaurants or mega malls. If you want to eat something special or pick up an outfit you can't find anywhere else, you should visit either Bardstown Road or Frankfort Avenue. Both are sure to be special experiences.
