Take the Reins in the Bluegrass State

While it’s certainly a great place to saddle up, the Kentucky Derby’s namesake state has plenty to offer besides horses. Make the rounds in bourbon country, or entertain your eyes and ears along the scenic Country Music Highway. Stay ata rustic mountain lodge as you explore one of 50 state parks, which include sights such as Cumberland Falls, the “Niagara of the South.”
