Kentucky Department of TourismThere’s Only One Kentucky Derby, Only One Mammoth Cave, Only
One “Niagara of the South” and There’s Only One place to see them all…Kentucky.
You can travel to the far reaches of the globe and not experience what you can
only discover in Kentucky.
Kentucky is well known for a few things: the Kentucky Derby,
Kentucky Bourbon and of course Kentucky Fried Chicken. However the nine
districts that make up this state also offer a range of activities and events
unknown to many. Visit the Muhammad Ali Centre in Louisville, take a drive
along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail®, sample down-home country cooking at Bourbon
Cooking Schools or take a tour of the National Corvette Museum, the largest and
most comprehensive non-profit museum ever dedicated to America’s premier sports
car. With Lexington being the ‘Horse Capital of the World’ and offering 450
Thoroughbred, working horse farms in the area, horse lovers can easily find a
destination full of things to do. Horseback riding trails are available
including woodland trails with accommodation nearby, guided trails on horseback
or riding lessons on bluegrass farmland. The Kentucky Horse Park, where the
World Equestrian Games (WEG) is being held, also offers the perfect chance to
get close to the horses with horseback riding lessons, pony rides and live
horse shows throughout the summer.
