Downtown Danville Fun
Put yourself right in the middle of downtown and book Stayover Danville, a trendy loft with style and enough comfort for your entire family! Not only do you have an amazing view from your Main street balcony, but the loft will give you perfect access to many local shops, eateries, and fun!
On your first night, break yourself in with the fun atmosphere and feel good local pizazz of Bluegrass Pizza and Pub right on Main! Within walking distance, you can enjoy this vibrant pub and eat at one of the local family favorites…shh! Just a short walk back to ultimate comfort and relaxation, you can go get ready for the ultimate experience of historically bold Danville!
First morning!first things first…Run out and grab some local homemade donuts from Burke's Bakery. Many will tell you that you haven’t lived until you’ve treated your taste buds to this long-time local bakery!
From here you can walk right across the street to explore the birthplace of Kentucky, Constitution Square! Explore the cabins, hear the infamous story of the Harpe brothers and more, and check out Grayson’s Tavern where the politicians all gathered in the formation of our town!
As long as you are so close, visit McDowell House Museum and Apothecary Shop, and then grab a bite at Grace Cafe. If you haven’t heard…Grace Café is a local restaurant where you pay only what you can afford. They offer food in exchange for volunteering for those families in need. Best of all, the food is all fresh, local, and prepared to be a healthy and delicious meal to remember! If you’re in town during the weekend, feel free to double dip here! The café now serves breakfast on Saturday!
After all of this you will still have time to do a little local shopping before grabbing dinner at Nellie Burton’s Steakhouse and Sports Bar. The word around town is, Nellie Burton’s has the best burger you’ve ever put in your mouth!
Where to first? Since you are so close, grab some breakfast or a smoothie at Plank on Main. Plank is famous for their local smoothies and fitness fun! Still craving historical fun? A “must see” is most definitely The Great American Dollhouse Museum full of little tiny handcrafted snapshots of points of time in history, amazing architecture, and even a little fantasy to give you a run for your money.
What’s for lunch? If you’re a fan of bbq then Brother’s BBQ is your next stop. Another local favorite this place is a hit with bbq ribs, bones, and whatever else you can imagine that melts in your mouth! Since you’ve ventured a minute or two off the main path, this is a great time to tour Wilderness Trail Distillery and pick up your very own hometown distillery pride memorabilia. Danville’s first very popular distillery is just a short 10-15-minute drive and well worth the time. Make this your first stop on the famous Bourbon Trail!
What a day you’ve had! On your way back from the distillery, stop in Millennium Park and watch the sunset while you feed the ducks. Take a deep breath and enjoy beautiful rolling hills and the smell of sweet Kentucky bluegrass. If you’re around during just the right time of year, you might catch a play at Pioneer Playhouse, the oldest outdoor theater in Kentucky, and one of the few still functioning in the country! Best of all…dinner comes with it!
