Region North Central Kentucky

"The Folk Arts and Crafts Capital of Kentucky." Berea is a graceful blend of southern hospitality and Appalachian tradition. Relax and enjoy your visit to Berea. Talk with one of our 40 craftspersons or gallery owners in the friendly atmosphere of their studios. Listen as they share with you information about their craft, studio, or shop. Learn what is required to produce a beautiful "Birds Eye Maple" rocking chair or an original piece of jewelry. Listen to the music of the dulcimer, or the sound of the weaver's shuttle as you visit our artisans' shops. Berea features over 16 antique shops and 3 antique malls full of "yesterday's treasures", ready for you to decorate your home or office. Berea offers everyone a variety of places to dine from traditional Appalachian cuisine to soup and sandwich or an old-fashion milkshake. Berea has something for everyone and we hope you have a great visit.
