The route is of particular interest to bird watchers, as it passes through wildlife habitats where John James Audubon himself lived and studied local bird populations. Visit the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area to see the Elk & Bison prairie, or stay at a Kentucky State Park on one of the lakes. This road trip offers many opportunities to soak in the charm of small towns. And where else but Mayfield can you see the "strange procession that never moves." Whether you’re just passing through or making a vacation of it, the opportunities along I-69 are endless!
