Region North Central Kentucky

Located just north of the crossroads of I-75 and I-64, Georgetown and Scott County are ideally located 10 miles north of Lexington, the Horse Capital of the World. Today, Georgetown is a blend of old and new. Noted for its profusion of historic houses and perhaps the finest antique shopping in the state, it is also one of Kentucky's fastest growing communities and the American home of Toyota's Camry and Avalon production facility. Our backroads offer beautiful horse farms, Irish fieldstone fences, the meandering Elkhorn and Eagle creeks and rolling fields of tobacco and cattle. You'll find small, quaint communities like Stamping Ground and Sadieville. Elkhorn Creek, the inspiration for Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass," offers both canoeists and fishermen a rewarding and relaxing experience.
