What vacation destination is known for its thoroughbred horses, horse racing, bourbon distilleries, blue grass music, automobile manufacturing, tobacco, and college basketball? That's right. You guessed it—Kentucky, the “Bluegrass State.” From the highest point on Black Mountain to the bedrock of the Mississippi River that runs through it, Kentucky is run based on the consent of its citizenry—hence, the name Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Just as there is always something to do in Kentucky, there is always somewhere to go. It is surrounded by seven states. There are five regions over 120 counties to explore. 90,000 miles of streams allows Kentucky to boast a complex stream system—one of the most vast in the United States.
Though Kentucky is a complex state with a variety of counties and churning channels of the “wet stuff,” one thing that needs to be emphasized is that it is a southern state. It has an aura that everyone can marvel at, but only a southerner can truly love. This “Barbecue Capital of the World” plays host to events such as the Kentucky Derby, the biggest day in horse racing, and to the National Quartet Convention, a hallmark of Southern gospel. Kentucky's Bowling Green is home of the National Corvette Museum, in honor of the Chevrolet Corvette, which is made manufactured exclusively in the city. Also, Old Louisville is the largest historic preservation district in the country.
Kentucky provides, both, the southern experience and a wide range of entertainment, such as the Beech Bend Raceway
, Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom, and the Louisville Zoo. Only experience or our yellow pages
