Kentucky Tours, Trails and Byways

Taste your way along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and tour our many “spirited” bourbon distilleries. Take a scenic drive through the tree-canopied byways of Horse Country and discover where racing champions are born and bred.

Travel back in time along the Native American Trail of Tears. Find off-the-beaten-path adventure on more than 1,500 miles of backpacking, hiking and ATV trails in Kentucky. Or let the music do the talking on the Kentucky Music Trail.

There may be no better way to see the countryside, experience the culture, taste the food, hear the music and meet all of the wonderful characters of Kentucky than on Kentucky tours, trails and byways.
