Kentucky Vacations, Tour Packages & Travel Experiences


Rolling pasturelands dotted with sprawling Georgian mansions where prize winning horses frolic by day and sleep in climate-controlled barns at night, where the air smells of sweet Bluegrass and fertile earth and the Southern hospitality of the decedents of the American frontiersmen and women pervades, this is Kentucky.

Springtime explodes with pastel pink Dogwood blossoms and the green of the endless miles of Kentucky Sweetgrass is brightest at this time when the Kentucky Derby in Louisville (first Saturday in May) launches the horse racing season. Walking or cycling the tree-lined streets of Kentucky’s largest city any time of year is a pleasure as Louisville was named by the survivors of the American Revolution after King Louis XVI of France and is full of history.

Visit the millions year old underground majesty of Mammoth Cave Natural Park or explore the serene farm of Abraham Lincoln’s birthplace, dine on chicken fricassee and sip on mint julips or the state’s world-renowned bourbon; Kentucky makes more of this gran-distilled, oak-aged whiskey than anywhere else.

Log cabins dating back to the Civil War sit on limestone rich soil which nurtures the iconic Bluegrass hundreds of long-legged thoroughbreds dine on.  Frontiersman Daniel Boon traversed the Kentucky River and this new frontier and you can too by following in his footsteps in Fort Boonesborough State Park in Lexington. Quaint towns with charming inns and bed and breakfasts with wrap around porches and a sense of calm await you in this American pastoral paradise.
