Her stops include the interactive Kentucky Derby Museum, the Muhammad Ali Center, Joe Ley's unique and enormous antique shop, Joella's Hot Chicken, a tour of Louisville Mega Cavern and a visit to Merle's Whiskey Kitchen to learn how to mix an Old Fashioned.

The program has visited Louisville before, featuring NuLu, Copper and Kings Distillery, Blue Dog Bakery, Proof on Main and Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory to name a few.

"My mom is from Louisville, and though I have been a few times, it wasn't really until traveling with 'The Southern Weekend' film crew that I was able to have some time to really explore this town," McKinney said. "And man was I impressed! I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't this. This city is awesome. I'd highly recommend spending time in Louisville."
