Deer Park, Louisville, Kentucky, United States

Kentucky Rushmore

What do Muhammad Ali, Colonel Saunders, Abraham Lincoln and Secretariat have in common? Louisville! Ali was born here. Lincoln was born nearby. Saunders died here. And Secretariat was a record-winning racehorse who won the Kentucky Derby in 1973. A few others were up for the honor, but didn't make it: Hunter S Thompson, Daniel Boone and Loretta Lynn.

It occupies one wall of the city's independent souvenir shop, WHY Louisville. It's definitely worth stepping inside. Delightfully wacky treasures await.
