Kentucky: Sunshine All Day & Moonshine All Night

Kentucky is one of the most vibrant and exciting states in the U.S., as well as one of its best kept secrets. Unbeknownst to many, Kentucky has more coastline than Florida due to its many lakes. From the world famous Churchill Downs to the Louisville Zoo, the attractions are unlimited in this beautiful state of wonder.
The Kentucky Derby
For horse lovers, it’s hard to beat a visit to Churchill Downs, site of the annual Kentucky Derby since 1875. Steeped in tradition, the Kentucky Derby Museum offers a view of horse racing’s historic past. If you visit around the first Saturday in May, be prepared to bump elbows with more than 125,000 other people who have come from all over the world to witness the two most exciting minutes in sports.


Mammoth Cave National Park
If visiting national parks is your thing, Kentucky has you covered. There are more than 1 million acres of national parks to choose from, my personal favorite being Mammoth Cave National Park, home of the largest cave system in the world. In addition to visiting the caves, you’ll also have the opportunity to go hiking, camping, biking and/or horseback riding. You may even catch a glimpse of our wildlife while participating in some of the above activities.

Muhammad Ali Center
No visit to Kentucky would be complete without a visit to the legendary city of Louisville, home of the Muhammad Ali Center, the Speed Art Museum, and the Louisville Slugger Museum. For being centrally located in the city, you will find a number of hotels and guest houses. By opting to stay there, you’ll easily find Bardstown Road, a stone’s throw away from a truly ‘one of a kind’ entertainment district. The motto at Bardstown is, “Keep Louisville weird” so you never know what the local businesses or the local talent will be brewing up for you to enjoy.
Louisville Slugger Museum
Baseball lovers will jump at the chance to visit the Louisville Slugger Museum, home of baseball’s most iconic bat. You and your family will learn about the history of baseball, and you’ll have a chance to tour the Louisville slugger factory to see how today’s bats are manufactured.

National Corvette Museum
My other personal favorite place to visit in Kentucky is the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green. The Corvette lover in your family will be eternally grateful for the opportunity to visit this historic museum. They’ll be even more ecstatic if they get to tour GM’s Bowling Green Corvette assembly plant.

So when you and your family sit down to plan your next vacation, we highly recommend that you visit the Bluegrass State, where we truly have something for everyone. From classic sports cars and baseball history to world renowned caves and local entertainment, every day you spend in Kentucky will bring you and your family joy and enrichment, all while making memories that will last a lifetime.
