Western Kentucky Parkway

  • Bluegrass, Blues & BBQ
  • Bourbon, Horses & History
  • Caves, Lakes & Corvettes
98 miles

The Western Kentucky Parkway traverses expansive farmland and several top-notch state parks that offer endless opportunities to fish, play or stay the night.

Extending from I-65 to the west and I-69 to the east, this parkway passes by a monument to one of Kentucky's most beloved musical acts, the Everly Brothers, and an outdoor theater where Kentucky history plays out on stage every summer. Just off the parkway, stretch your legs at some of the Bluegrass State's most incredible natural attractions, from the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area to Mammoth Cave
