Favorite thing: In the Louisville area, I would advise taking a dinner cruise on the Belle of Louisville. Louisville has some nice restaurants for a city this size which I will describe below. The best time to visit Louisville is in early May when the city celebrates Kentucky Derby week, but this is also when the hotels charge the most.

Favorite thing: take time to get to know the people and visit some of the sites listed below.
I love my adopted State of Kentucky. Work or pleasure has taken me to most regions of the State except for the far western part of the state. If Virtual Tourist member is planning a trip to the Bluegrass State and needs more specific advice, I welcome an E-mail.
On this page I will divide the usual topics by regions. In the far Western region of Kentucky, I would plan a trip to one of the great State resort Parks such as Lake Barkely State Resort Park located near Cadiz, Kentucky. See 'www.kystateparks.com' for more information about this park and other parks.
If I was visiting along the Ohio River in far Western Kentucy, I would eat bar-b-que at one of the well known restaurants such as Moonlite in Henderson. Better yet, I would plan my trip for the W.C. Handy Blues and bar-b-que festival in Henderson, or the International bar-b-que festival in Owensboro. For more information on the dates of these and other Kentucky events see the Kentucky Department of Tourism's Web site, Kentuckytourism.com.
LAKE CUMBERLAND : If you like...
Favorite thing: LAKE CUMBERLAND : If you like simple family or small group fun, try renting a houseboat and live on Cumberland Lake for a week. If you have a motorboat, you can water ski, tube or just cruise the water. Also, I hear the fishing isn't too bad. Play cards, talk, grill out and drink up. It's downhome fun in a terrific natural setting.
RED RIVER GORGE: Whether you...
Favorite thing: RED RIVER GORGE: Whether you want to just go hiking, or if you'd like to camp, Red River Gorge has something to offer you. It is a wonderful place to lose yourself for a day - just park the car and head off on one of the many trails. If you like camping, there are many sites, mostly primative. There is something magical about sitting by a camp fire, listening to the night sounds and watching the stars in the sky.
This is a great place to catch the changing colors of Fall. Forest stretches for miles around and there are some great views from the upper ridges.
If you are in the Lexington...
Favorite thing: If you are in the Lexington area you should go see the Horsepark. If you are in the Danville area and like to camp or fish go to Lake Cumberland. I also like Cumberland Falls. There is a outfitter called Shiltowee Trace Outfitters that take raft trips and canoe trips. Great fun!!
Fondest memory: The bluegrass and horses.
Mammoth Caves in Horse Cave...
Favorite thing: Mammoth Caves in Horse Cave Kentucky was worth seeing. If you like hiking it has nice hiking areas also.
We enjoyed the Corvette assembly plant in Bowling Green.

A GREAT PLACE TO VISIT
I love to visit Kentucky. The state has so many wonderful things to see. If you want come with me and I tell you a few of the places I have visited.
visit Land between the Lakes...
Favorite thing: visit Land between the Lakes is absolutely the most beautiful place in Kentucky. It's a wildlife refuge, so everything is preserved. You can visit either Kentucky Lake or Lake Cumberland. You can go camping, whitewater rafting, sightseeing, fishing, and there are so many other things to do. They have great restaraunts and wonderful lodging.
Fondest memory: My fondest memory, and the thing I miss most about Kentucky, is the peacefulness. When you move to a large city...the quiet dissapears and the stress starts.
Don't forget to see a Dentist
Favorite thing: All the Fun loving children!! HAHAHAHA (Click to see Josh's NEW Hillbilly teeth)
