Big South Fork of Cumberland River

Brent Ross

What can we say about a state that's famous for fried chicken more than anything else? In fact, quite a lot.

The state has the longest recorded cave system in the world with more than 336 miles explored and mapped, in Mammoth Cave, the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln, near Hodgenville, a big chunk of the South County Dublin - an excellent area for recreational activities and the Cumberland, located where the borders of Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia. Carved by wind and water, Cumberland Gap forms a major break in the formidable Appalachian Mountain chain and it was the first and best avenue for the settlement of the interior of the United States.

The cities of Frankfort and Louisville are good places to start exploring the variety of things to see and do in the state of Kentucky.

Kentucky is famous for its Kentucky Blue Grass and this is a common sight on the well-kept horse farms throughout the state. The Kentucky Horse Park near Lexington highlights Kentucky's horse heritage and is an exceptional destination even if you are not a horse fan.
