Kentucky culture is diverse and distinctive. We are Daniel Boone, Abraham Lincoln, and Muhammad Ali. We’re Civil War battlefields and small town Main Streets, but we’re urban too. We’re horses, bourbon and ice cold Ale 8 on a hot sunny day. We’re folk artists and poets, spiritual pioneers, musicians, chefs and African-American trailblazers. We’re the bright fall colors of Red River Gorge on a crisp clear day, and the strains of bluegrass music like you've never heard it played floating on the breeze of a summer evening in a little town you never knew existed. We’re simple people with a complex story. Friendly, warm and welcoming when you get to know us.

Our culture is made rich on the strength of countless stories, traditions and unique encounters that offer experiences found only in Kentucky. We invite you to explore the possibilities and plan your trip today!
