Kentucky, where would you go and why?

Lexington or Louisville? We will be passing through that area in early October. We may have two nights so it will be one stop. Where would you stop? Suggestions what to do?

Thanks!

Depends on what your looking to do ... I lived in Louisville most of my life and to me other than the Bardstown road area and the night life on fourth street live .. there's not that much there that was exciting to me. Otter creek campground area near Fort Knox is a nice campground near Louisville. There is also a koa near shepardsville about 20 miles out. Lexington is horse country and bourbon country. Beautiful rolling hills and huge horse farms.

Well of course everyone has their own ideas of what would be cool to see ... to me I think Lexington offers more beauty .... I think fort boonsborough state park and campground is not that far from Lexington and it is a really picturesque are near the river

We really enjoyed our week in Jennie C. Riley state park in Eastern KY a few years ago. It is near Prestonburg, right in the middle of lots of great country music with free or low cost "pickin and grinning" sessions in nearyby areas nearly every night of the week. Beautiful scenery, lots of lakes, friendly people and a very good campground in the state park. Take time to visit Loretta Lynn's hometown area at Butcher Hollow while you are there and to drive Highway 23--the Country Music Highway.

Disclaimer: I have not camped in KY. But we have rented a cottage in Natural Bridge State Park.

That said I'd go near Lexington. If you do any hiking, the Red River Gorge Geological Area is only an hour from Lexington and has more natural arches than Arches National Park. It's also close to Natural Bridge State Park. This area is just drop dead gorgeous. At the very least it's worth a drive from Lexington just to drive on the parkway around the Red River Gorge area.

I don't know what other distilleries are in the Lexington area but we visited the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort. Very cool tour.

There is a nice campground in Mammouth Caves area and lots to do.

We have also stayed at the Kentucky Horse Park just a few miles north of Lexington many times. You will have a hard time finding a nicer campground anywhere. Old Friends is a nice tour of retired and unwanted Thoroughbreds, Bourbon tours, Toyoto Assembly plant 4 miles from the campground. You might also want to check if they are racing at Keeneland during that time. Plenty to do around Lexington.

Awesome. To be honest Kentucky was a bit of an afterthought on this trip only because of my ignorance. Based on my research and forum replies, I'm very excited to be spending some time there.
