The Best Destinations for Family Vacations in Kentucky

Pack up the family and head to the beautiful Bluegrass State of Kentucky for the intriguing combination of bustling city life and breath-taking natural beauty that is Kentucky. Whether you want action and excitement or an escape to a friendly rural retreat, there's a destination here for everyone.

  • 1. Lexington

    This vibrant metropolitan area is probably Kentucky's most recognized major city, home to million-dollar horse farms, world-class bourbon, and the University of Kentucky. The famous Kentucky Wildcats play basketball in UK's Rupp Arena from November through May, a memorable experience for the entire family. Take a tour of a horse farm and get up close and personal with elegant and highly-trained thoroughbred horses. Race fans will want to catch an evening of racing at the beautifully landscaped and historic Keeneland Racetrack.

  • 2. Mammoth Cave National Park

    One of Kentucky's famous natural wonders, take your family down into these spectacular and ancient caverns, where your guide will point out the features of the world's longest known cave. Nearby is Dinosaur World Kentucky, where your little T-Rex fans can dig for fossils, pan for minerals, and learn about the giant ancient Kentucky residents in the indoor museum. If exploring Mammoth Cave makes you want more underground adventures, visit Diamond Caverns, a World Heritage Site featuring colorful displays of sparkling cave formations.

  • 3. Berea

    Just south of Lexington lies Berea, home of historic Berea College and a vast community of artists and craft artisans. The public is invited to watch artists at work, creating everything from paintings to puppets, glass figures to fine woven cloth. Take home a small piece of your Berea experience with a piece of Kentucky craftsmanship to call your own. Environmentalists and conservationists find Berea and the college community a welcoming place, maintaining the beautiful grounds of the John B. Stephenson Memorial Forest State Nature Preserve and Anglin Falls as a haven for locals and visitors alike. Folk music lovers will enjoy the weekly contra dancing and "jammin' on the porch."

  • 4. Eastern Kentucky

    This region of Kentucky is the ideal destination for those who want to explore the countryside and rural communities of this picturesque state. This is the area where the Appalachian Mountains embrace the landscape and country folk cherish their heritage. Visit Mount Sterling to sample famous Ruth Hunt Candy, then drive over to Ashland to spend an afternoon at the Highlands Museum and Discovery Center. Remember to keep an eye out for local roadside produce stands for the best tomatoes and rhubarb you'll ever taste.

  • 2. Churchill Downs

    For horse lovers, a trip to Kentucky wouldn't be complete without a visit to Churchill Downs, Louisville's historic home to the Run for the Roses, the Kentucky Derby.

At other times, the track holds regular horse races, as well as fascinating guided tours, dining options, and a monthly Family Adventure Day.
