Things to Do During Your Weekend Getaway in Kentucky

Kentucky’s many outdoor playgrounds are ideal for family adventures. While you’ll surely have fun wherever, it can be tough deciding what to do. Consider the following experiences when touring Kentucky.

  • Climbing

    Head to the Red River Gorge in Muir Valley to explore the hundreds of climbing routes. It has opportunities for both young and old to test their abilities. Some of the famous climbing spots include Roadside Crag, Pebble Beach, and Bruise Brothers Wall.

  • Kayaking

    Kentucky’s seemingly neverending waterways comprise whitewater rapids, calm lakes, and rippling streams. Hop onto a boat and paddle along Taylor Creek to see the ruins of a ship that survived two world wars.

  • Go out on a limb

    There’s more to trees than greenery and shade. Stop at EarthJOY Tree Adventures to climb amid sycamores on ropes. The guides will teach you how to tie knots, ascend and maneuver as you dangle in the air, and navigate hazards.

  • Horse riding

    Visit Kentucky and jump into a saddle. Numerous spots cater to equestrians, including Cable’s Riding Stables in Campton and Wrangler’s Riding Stables in Golden Pond.

  • Biking

    A weekend getaway in Kentucky could include cycling along Kentucky’s quaint trails. Pedal down any of the many great routes along the Red River Gorge, or get a quick workout on shorter routes through scenic rolling terrain.
