Kentucky Bluegrass Country Travel Guide
Plan Your Kentucky Bluegrass Country Vacation
Postcard views along America's superhighways are rare, but that's exactly what travelers zipping along Interstate Highways 64 and 75 in central Kentucky see. For many miles, the routes are bounded by rolling, fenced pastures of emerald green bluegrass where Kentucky's famous Thoroughbred racehorses graze. In the distance are the graceful outlines of owners' mansions—and the equally expensive equine residences. (Most barns in horse country are climate-controlled.)
