Situated as the Front Porch of the South, Kentucky has all of that southern charm, but is blended with Midwest sensibilities. A blend that is as perfect as the corn and grains that age in oak barrels across the rolling hills waiting to become Kentucky bourbon. Limestone water that flows abundantly in Kentucky is essential to the bourbon and meanders throughout the picturesque Kentucky horse farms to create the bluegrass and champion thoroughbreds. Kentucky is home to the longest cave system in the world, the birthplace of bluegrass music and has more miles of running water than any other state in the lower 48. It doesn't matter the length of your visit or what corner of Kentucky you travel, there is a hospitality found here like nowhere else
