Beyond the Curb’s Urban Living Tour taking you to historic Ludlow on September 22; visit 12 properties


Beyond the Curb Urban Living Tour is in Ludlow this year, brought to you by The Catalytic Fund.

On Sunday September 22 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. participants get an exclusive peek into the homes and businesses of this historic river city with a growing art and music community.

Beyond the Curb is a self-guided tour with a central registration area at Bircus Brewing Co. Tour-goers will check in there and receive their ticket, information packet, and other day-of information and materials.

Ludlow is a town of surprises: a peaceful community with easy access to the river and a 155-year history. But you will also find a distillery with a fortune-telling fish, a swami with a moustache so big you can actually ride on it and the “luckiest bar in the world.” There are jugglers, unicyclists and clowns, all sharing a beer in an old theater. Down the street is the studio of an internationally famous watercolor artist. The park has a “totally sick” skateboarding area and you can get an up-close view of passing trains from the new train viewing platform.

Beyond the Curb shows off urban living. Tours showcase a mixture of properties and businesses in a variety of neighborhoods: from market-rate luxury apartments and condos to historic mixed-use buildings and single-family residences — and even some projects that are in progress so you can see the “before” and come back another time to see the “after.” You will discover beautifully preserved historic buildings, skyline views, and the latest in modern interior design.

Northern Kentucky’s five River Cities, Ludlow, Covington, Newport, Bellevue, and Dayton, make up ONE special urban area, with each contributing its own character and style. Beyond the Curb is a series of one-day self-guided urban living tour experiences. They offer a rare opportunity to explore a variety of urban residential properties and experience the finest amenities of the urban lifestyle. Go beyond the curb to discover urban living in a new context.

With your ticket you get:

• Admission to exclusive behind-the-scenes tours of 12 high-profile properties in Ludlow. Guests under the age 15 receive free admission!
• Opportunity to win several prizes.
• Free Parking at nearby locations

The 12 Ludlow properties on the tour on September 22 are:
