“And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, in dimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.” ― Pico Iyer
To my romantic heart and my travel-loving soul, no truer words have ever been spoken. As travelers, we seek out excitement and the rich happiness that comes from experiencing something unknown. And we seek out romance for so many of the same reasons. So if you are yearning for a weekend getaway to fulfil your romantic wishes and satisfy your wanderlust—look no further.
A Romance for the Ages: If beautiful ball gowns, men in strapping tuxedos, and dancing the night away in a luxurious ballroom filled with crystal chandeliers are the perfect touches for your ideal romantic evening, then a weekend at The Brown Hotel in Kentucky should fit the bill.
Situated in the heart of downtown Louisville, The Brown Hotel is a stunning 16-story historic property known for its longstanding love affair with the city. With a distinctive English Renaissance style, The Brown Hotel exudes a classic and romantic aura, once enjoyed by iconic figures like Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Crawford and Gene Autry. A glamorous getaway awaits you and your beloved.
