Welcome to Kentucky

Kentucky is a southern U.S. state known for its mild climate, extensive forest lands, many state parks, large lakes, and over 1100 miles of navigable river. The area’s great natural beauty has inspired visitors since the 18th-century pioneer days when legendary frontiersman Daniel Boone helped explore and settle the territory before its 1792 statehood. Famous for horseracing, bourbon whiskey, bluegrass music, southern cooking, and coal, the state has a rich folk history and many historic sites including the birthplaces of Abraham Lincoln and boxer Muhammad Ali. Mammoth Caves, the world’s longest cave system, and the legendary 147-year-old Kentucky Derby horserace are two standout attractions.
