Countdown To Grand Prix Louisville: 2 Days Out – Travel And Lodging!

Still haven’t figured out your travel plans for Grand Prix Louisville? Cedric Phillips has the info that just might salvage your weekend!

Welcome back to the Grand Prix Louisville countdown blog! Yesterday, I introduced you to the wonderful cosplayers who will be joining us at Grand Prix Louisville this weekend. So if you’re looking to get a photo with Liliana, Delver of Secrets, or Stoneforge Mystic, Derby City is the place to be on January 6-8.

Now that you know all of the reasons to attend Grand Prix Louisville, the only thing left to do is figure out how to get there and where to lay your head at night. So let’s talk travel and lodging today, shall we?


If you’re flying to Grand Prix Louisville, you’ve only got one airport to choose from: Louisville International Airport. Just ten minutes from downtown, Louisville International Airport is a low-fare airport that draws travelers from across the Kentucky and Southern Indiana region. The airport offers nonstop service to 23 destinations and convenient connections to cities worldwide. I’ve flown through SDF quite a few times during my travels for the SCG Tour and have found it fairly simple to navigate, so anyone with fears of having to navigate a complex airport can rest easy.
