Travel Kentucky


This is Kentucky ... Come See for Yourself!

Explore Kentucky's rich culture and heritage at historic homes, museums, and other attractions around the state, then marvel at beautiful works of art and craftsmanship at local shops, galleries and artisan studios. Discover the birthplace of bourbon. From distillery tours that get you behind the scenes to tastings that let you sip bourbon at its source, Kentucky has it all.

Experience the sights, sounds, beauty and complete joy that a visit to Kentucky horse country provides. Spend a day at the races, tour an equine museum or visit a farm to meet future and former champions. Float, swim, fish or paddle in massive lakes and meandering rivers. Hike and bike mountain trails, scale towering rocks or soak up the views from dramatic overlooks. Take a horseback ride through the forest, explore fascinating caves, zip through the treetops or hop on an ATV for a wild ride.

When you're ready to call it a day, pitch a tent under the stars, spend the night on a houseboat or sleep in a one-of-a-kind treehouse. All these adventures are bound to work up an appetite. Taste the talents of James Beard-honored chefs, sip on craft beer and creative cocktails, or settle into a cozy diner for comfort food that reminds you of home. Cap off your trip with some local shopping and a little live music, and you have all the makings of a great Kentucky getaway.
