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

  • Thank you so much for sending me your 20th anniversary DVD of my Adventure Caravans' New York City 10 Day Rally. I really enjoyed this trip so much and meeting all the people on the trip. I enjoyed watching this video and it brought back so many wonderful memories.  I am really looking forward to taking another trip with Adventure Caravans! Would you please tell your staff what a pleasure it was meeting them and what a wonderful job they did on this trip and hopefully I will get to tour with them again soon. Thanks again for everything.

    Joe & Margie Mirabella
  • “It was fantastic. It exceeded all our expectations in every way. Wagonmasters & Tailgunners were the BEST!”
    Fred & Judy Smith
  • When we signed up for the tour all we knew was that we were going to Alaska. Adventure Caravans made this trip, for us, a once in a lifetime experience. Everything was taken care of, all we had to do was leave in the morning and be in the next campground by a certain time. We enjoyed every facet of the tour from the log meetings and socials to the tours and our free time. Kudos to the wagon masters and the Penny and Tom. The icing on the cake are the wonderful friends that we made and know we will keep in touch. The camaraderie among the whole group was amazing but the trip left us with memories for a lifetime. Thank you Adventure Caravans.

  • “We enjoyed looking at the photos. I agree regarding the description of the Kaori Wildlife Sanctuary stop. In fact I would rate it as the high point of the entire Queensland / New Zealand tour. I am surprised to see other tours, even tours billed as "wildlife tours", that don't even make that stop.”
