6:30 Directions from the University Campus to the Seelbach Hotel by City Bus -

If you should miss the free Conference shuttle there is a City Bus which runs every 12 minutes, approximately 30 minute excursion each way


Louisville, the River City, is the jumping off place for the Rogers and Clark Expedition. Now you can share in the excitement of discover, as you board a city bus to return to the Seelbach Hotel. Your tour will provide a glimpse of the charm which makes "Louavul" a best kept secret of the American heartland.

Your expedition begins on exiting Bingham Humanities Building (Westward, ho!) Headed towards the Library, Continue westbound until 3rd Street. Paying heed to traffic signals, ford this bustling campus artery and forge ahead until you see the majestic, soaring, sloping roofs of the high rise dorms which are home to a varied array of indigenous Uofl, fauna. The bus stop at 4th and Brandeis bids you to await the next conveyance northward every twelve minutes (bus appropriately labeled "4") at the nominal fare of$I.00 (peak hours) and $0.75 (off peak hours) - exact change only please, and on to the Seelbach Hotel, which served as model for "The Great Gatsby".


Shortly after boarding, you will transit the area of Central Park, one of Louisville's 16 parks laid out by l'Enfant, the same French architect who configured the nation's capitol, Washington D.C. The stately homes of Saint James Place, with its striking bronze figural fountain, feature prominently as background for the annual Saint James Art Fair, held each fall.

You will next note Spalding University and shortly thereafter prepare for transboarding at Broadway to the T oonerville II Trolley, which in addition to being absolutely free!!!, will surprise and delight you with the sights and sounds of Theater Square before delivering you to the main entrance and Southern hospitality of the Legendary Seelbach. To return to the conference, simply play this scenario in reverse and get off the bus at Cardinal Boulevard.
