Kentucky Travel Guide
Kentucky has an extensive system of state parks for boating, fishing, hiking, and other outdoor recreation. The Daniel Boone National Forest occupies hundreds of thousands of acres in the eastern part of the state. Among the many sites are the Cumberland Gap in the southeast corner (through which Daniel Boone led the first pioneer settlers); the mansions, horse farms, and bourbon distilleries of the central Bluegrass region; and the Native American burial mounds in the western lowlands where the Ohio and Mississippi rivers meet. The state is also known for Mammoth Cave; with its 340 miles of mapped passages, it's the longest cave system in the world. Scores of antebellum and Victorian inns are scattered throughout Kentucky, providing you with a taste of real Southern hospitality, as well as traditional regional cooking.
