Explore the Red River Gorge, rock climb or hike the trails throughout Daniel Boone National Forest.   Discover Daniel Boone’s first frontier at Cumberland Gap National Park and visit other historical sites and parks dedicated to preserving the Civil War history of southeastern Kentucky.  Visit the “Niagara of the South” at Cumberland Falls or get wet while white water rafting or paddling on the numerous rivers.  Spend the day boating, fishing or relaxing on a houseboat on beautiful Laurel Lake. 

Experience an adventure at one of the many ATV Parks that feature thousands of miles of trails such as the Black Mountain Off-Road Adventure Area where black bears roar as you climb Kentucky’s highest elevated ATV trails.  Take a scenic tour from atop Kentucky’s highest mountains by zip line and experience a view unlike any other. Learn the ropes on rock climbing walls, the real thing, or explore a forest canopy like never before at the Treetop Adventure at Levi Jackson State Park. 

Enjoy a variety of shows and top notch entertainment in “Kentucky’s Country Music Capital” at Renfro Valley Entertainment Center. Make sure you don’t miss the Center’s next door neighbor the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Enjoy fried chicken at Colonel Sander’s original restaurant or discover original arts and crafts created by Kentucky artists all throughout Southeastern KY!

Camp out or explore our scenic region from the comfort of your cabin, lodge, or motel room and see spectacular spring and fall foliage while cruising on your motorcycle or favorite classic car. You can even enjoy a relaxed scenic drive along the mountain by-ways. Every weekend you can find a festival celebrating local heritage or another fun event in our quaint towns.
