There’s so much to do in Oldham County and it is so close to Louisville, more hotel rooms are on the way to accommodate travelers. Holiday Inn Express & Suites is scheduled for a July opening on Commerce Parkway in La Grange. And the new owners of Best Western Ashbury Inn are in the process of renovating. The county passed a “short-term rental” ordinance for home hospitality requiring a permit and transient room tax just like hotels and B&Bs.
“By offering a one-payment option for all-things-Oldham when groups stay overnight in the county, Oldham Tourism develops complete group itineraries for groups of 20 or more with no additional up-charge for the service,” said Kim Buckler Hydes, tourism director.
Group itineraries often include in-county transportation, bourbon tours, farm tours, shopping in La Grange and customized Underground Railroad activities at the Oldham County History Center.
