Traverse through the Bluegrass State
Mammoth Cave National Park
Visit the centre of Kentucky's Caves and Lakes Region for a stirring trip to the mysterious limestone caves of Mammoth Cave National Park. Dating back over 15 million years, and with over 392 miles of creeks and caverns (the largest in the world), roaming through Mammoth's underground cave network is a truly unique experience. Enjoy a tour with an experienced guide, and marvel at the imposing 'Frozen Niagara' to retrace the caves' capitvating history. Beyond the caves, enjoy the park's nature trails and hiking tours, whilst keeping an eye out for one of the 70 rare species Mammoth is home to.
Holidays in Frankfort
History lovers visiting Kentucky should look no further than the state's capital, Frankfort, to indulge their passion in all things past. Defined by a long history dating back to the late 18th century, Franfort's heritage is all the more special thanks to its surrounding leafy suburbs, winding valleys and the free-flowing Kentucky River. Explore the city's historic sites, museums and restored stately homes by foot, or wander through the bourbon warehouses at the Buffalo Trace Distillery. Discover the beautiful Bluegrass Hills at the Buckley Wildlife Sanctuary, before venturing to the Scenic Overlook for panoramas of the city skyline.
Holidays in Bowling Green
Famous for manafacturing sports cars and its ancient cavern in the city centre, Bowling Green combines unique attractions with historic war landmarks. Visit the National Corvette Museum for a glimpse into the production of America's favourite sports car, or venture to the Lost River Valley and Cave to take Kentucky's only underground boat tour. You could always traverse through winding nature trails and marvel at the exceptional butterfly habitat, or explore the boutiques at the charming Fountain Square Park. And as if that wasn't enough, you'll want to retrace the events of yesteryear by taking the Civil War Discovery Trail.
Holidays in Lexington
Delve into the heart of central Kentucky's Bluegrass region with a visit to Lexington, the acclaimed 'Horse Capital of the World'. With over 500 horse parks and an American horse saddle museum, you'll be hard pushed not to have a soft spot for Lexington's thoroughbreds by the end of your visit. For those less partial to racehorses, hike through trails of forestry, meadows and gentle creeks at the Raven Run Nature Sanctuary. Explore America's shrine to the First Lady, Mary Todd Lincoln, at the Waveland State Historic Site, or retrace the life of one of Lexington's most famous sons, Kentucky senator Henry Clay, with a wander through the stunning grounds of the Ashland estate.
Holidays in Louisville
Whilst being something of a Mecca for horse enthusiasts (they descend upon Churchill Downs every summer for the Kentucky Derby), there's a dynamism and energy unique to Kentucky’s biggest city; beyond its equestrian appeal. Marvel at the architecture of the Old Town, before sampling the city’s arts scene with a stroll through Market Street. Clamber up to the hill at Iroquois Park for awe-inspiring views of the city and enjoy stunning waterside panoramas along the sun-kissed Ohio River. Celebrate the lives of Baseball legends with a visit to the Louisville Slugger Museum, and cap off your day with a saunter through Fourth Street; home to Kentucky's famous bourbons.
