Bourbon and Horse Country are Kentucky’s most well-known attractions, and for good reason: they’ve both been around for more than 200 years. But there’s more to the Bluegrass State than the average tourist guide tells you about: from a museum dedicated to the Corvette, the homeplace of country music legend Bill Monroe, the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill and, of course, delicious hot browns (the area's signature open-faced turkey sandwich)—you're in for a wild time when visiting Kentucky. Take in the natural beauty of Kentucky’s renowned state parks, learn about the origins of bluegrass music and savor the taste of the state's food when following our guide to the very best things to do in Kentucky.
