Region North Central Kentucky

The centrally located, vivacious city of Richmond is known as Kentucky's fastest growing city (population 20,000+). The city was named after Richmond, Virginia, the hometown of Revolutionary War hero Colonel John Miller.

Richmond caters to visitors of all ages with activities ranging from shopping, outdoor recreation, festivals and historical markers to only name a few. For history lovers, we recommend visiting Fort Boonesborough State Park and for all of the artisans, be sure to stop by the Annual Pottery Festival.

Whether you are seeking an adventuresome getaway or some quality time with your loved ones, Richmond is the place for you.
