Kentucky Hotel Guides

Kentucky is a state full of rich history, beautiful scenery and the world-famous Kentucky Derby. It is sometimes classified as one of the southern states but more commonly considered to be a part of the Midwest. Kentucky visitors find unending choices for lodging all over the state, like in Frankfort - its capital city – and in other towns such as Benton, Newport and Grand Rivers. Outstanding recreational facilities and fine dining choices are part of Kentucky's charm along with good Bourbon. “America's native spirit,” is almost exclusively distilled, aged and bottled in Kentucky and visitors love to take part of the Bourbon Trail, which includes Louisville, Frankfort, Bardstown and Lexington. Amenities at hotels and resorts along the trail frequently organize tasting events and tours to distilleries.

Several Native American groups - Cherokee, Creek and Shawnee - lived in the w:st="on">Kentucky region when European explorers first arrived. Today, tourist can learn about these tribes, their culture and love for nature at parks such as the Cherokee Trail of Tears Park. Kentucky has plenty of outdoor adventures including Mammoth Cave which is designed to entertain travelers year-round. Accommodations at these parks range from log cabins to campsites and hotels, so everyone can pick and choose according to their personal tastes. Many visitors choose to follow one of the driving trails or scenic byways of the state like the Daniel Boom County Trail, which meanders through cities like Cumberland, Pinesville and London.

The state's numerous waterways and diverse landscapes are a paradise for hikers, bikers, boating enthusiasts and fishermen. Travelers have the choice of staying inland or near the water at rustic inns, bed and breakfasts, hotels and resorts… lodging is definitely not a problem in Kentucky.   Summer is a great time for families to visit this state - over 90,000 miles of streams provide one of the most expansive and complex stream systems in the nation. Along these rivers and lakes, accommodations range from five-star resorts to less expensive hotels and motels. Horses are also a big part of the Kentucky lifestyle. So much so, that the city of Lexington is known as the “Horse Capital of the World”. Every year thousands of visitors fill hotels to full capacity when they visit this city and historic Churchill Dows in Louisville to feel the thrill of Kentucky Derby, which is often referred to as the ‘most exciting two minutes in sports.'
