the Bluegrass State…

Our Old Kentucky Home is the place where the South, Appalachia and the Midwest all come together to meet and mingle. They introduced the mint julep and people around the world think of Kentucky whenever fried chicken comes up. Now is the time to take in a little BBQ or enter your own for the Chillin and Grillin competition we have planned for you. The accent is the Appalachian Twang, not the Southern Drawl, and they play basketball as good as the best flat-landed Midwesterner. Louisville is neither the Anglicanized “Louis-ville” nor the more French “Lou-ie-ville,” but simply “Lou-vull.”

Enjoy Mammoth Cave, the world’s longest cave, which is second only to Niagara Falls in tourism. Born within 100 miles of each other, but later historical adversaries, were Abraham Lincoln (Union President) and Jefferson Davis (Confederate President) both of Kentucky. Visit Pike county, once the world’s largest producer of coal and famous for the Appalachian vendetta that lasted over a quarter of a decade by the Hatfield & McCoy feud. Board the life size replica of the Noah’s Ark – new this year. Also visit the largest historic community of its kind…Shaker Village. Eat a Hot brown sandwich created at the one and only Brown Hotel, see the world’s largest baseball bat, the world’s largest crucifix, and the Bourbon capital of the world and its festival. And did you know, Kentucky is known as the “Horse Capital of the World”?

There are only three things that matter locally in the state of Kentucky – Bourbon, Basketball, and Horseracing. So come see the charm, beauty and immerse yourself in the many cultures across this Bluegrass State.

Come together to Meet and Mingle
