    From the Visit Louisville Facebook page: "All month long we have discounts at more than 80 businesses as we celebrate Hometown Tourist Month. All you need is a valid KY on IN I.D. and the deals are all yours. Catch some #LouisvilleLove and other details plus a very large description of all participating venues at this link." The Visitor's and Convention Bureau is encouraging residents and others to share and show their #LouisvilleLove, and this program is a great way to do that and experience all that Louisville and Kentuckiana has to offer us.
