The Very Best of Kentucky
Before moving to Kentucky, I always assumed this was a very country state. I actually never even thought twice about ever traveling here.
However, life turns out to be a funny one, because I got married to the love of my life, which just so happened to live in Kentucky!
So Ha Ha! Well played life!
Anyways, when I moved here I decided to find the most amazing places to check out, or at least brag about to all my family in the big cities.
Below are the places I definitely recommend you stopping by and checking out, if you’re in the area!
I’m sure you’ve heard of the famous Kentucky Derby, where they race horses, guess where it’s at? Yup, at the Churchill Downs.
When the derby isn’t going on they have many festivities and activities going on.
Children 12 and under are complimentary (except on Derby days).
They have a venue for weddings and special occasions as well, and it’s simply beautiful!

Kentucky Bourbon Trail
As the name suggests this trail was made to promote the Bourbon whiskey industry here in Kentucky.
It is a self guided tour/journey to Kentucky’s many different bourbon distilleries. This is a must if you enjoy strong alcohol.
Children’s are allowed, however it is more of an adults activity.
There are many different tours that guide you around this trail, and make it an unforgettable experience.

Louisville Slugger Museum
This is a museum crafted specially for baseball players. As they showcase the story of Louisville Slugger baseball bats in baseball and in American History .
From the moment you stand in front of it you will be greeted by their replica of Babe Ruth’s Own Louisville Slugger Bat.
This is an all day activity for the whole family! And for those that have little ones, children 5 and under go in for free!
You will actually get to see these bats in the making process, and can always buy your own customized bat, with your name and everything!
Big Four Bridge
The Big Four Bridge connects Louisville Waterfront Park to Jeffersonville Indiana, over the Ohio River.
You get to walk from one state to the other! It has certain parts of the bridge that has been customized with rainbow colors, enhancing the beauty of this bridge.
No pets are allowed unfortunately for all fur parents. However you can go biking with the family. It is definitely a must stop if you’re in the mood for a romantic date!
Definitely a must for pictures!
Bernheim Arboretum And Research Forest
This is a personal favorite! It has trails, a fishing lake, public art, and even giants!
Yup, you read that right, Giants!
They constructed three giant sculptures throughout the arboretum using recycled wood. Mama Loumarie with her children, Little Nis and Little Elina, once you reach the first one, it’s up to you to find the other two, making this my all time favorite place in Louisville.
They have a canopy tree walk which is 75 feet above the forest floor! Do you dare take on this adventure walk?
They also have an Edible Garden, and a children’s play garden, making this the number one stop for families with children of all ages, as you will all definitely be entertained and amazed!
If you have to choose one place to stop by, let this be the place!
I know when yóu think of Kentucky, chances are you are like me, and automatically connect it being all country, however Kentucky has many things to offer, if given the opportunity!
Let me know if you check out any of these places and what you think of them!
