    Home to bluegrass music, the Kentucky Derby, and one of the main states designated as the American South, Kentucky is one of those states that this has to be experienced to be believed. The history of the state goes back hundreds of years, and Kentucky has some of the most geographically diverse landscapes in the nation with plenty of natural resources. It contains some of the longest stretches of rivers and streams in the U.S. and is home to Mammoth Cave National Park, the world’s longest cave system. With borders against seven different states, Kentucky is actually broken down into five regions, each with their own unique demographics.

    Kentucky prides itself for the natural environment and the beauty of the landscapes throughout the state. There are over 90,000 miles of streams, including the Mississippi River, the Ohio River, the Big Sandy River, the Kentucky River, the Tennessee River, the Cumberland River, the Green River, the licking River, and Tug Fork. Outside of Alaska, Kentucky is the most water-filled state in the nation. It also has 45 state parks and two national forests, and the state puts a major emphasis on eco-tourism and reintroducing wild life back into the countryside.

    Kentucky isn't just about the natural beauty, however. Nearly everyone has heard of Kentucky bourbon and whiskey, and the state is also home to Fort Knox. Lexington is the horse capital of the world, while Louisville is home to the Kentucky Derby. There are festivals year-round to be experience, from the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival to the National Quartet Convention, or the International Barbecue Festival held in Owensboro. Old Louisville is home to the third largest Victorian preservation district the United States, and the state also boasts the reputation of being the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln. There are bluegrass festivals every year and between the food, the people, the horse races, the whiskey, the history, and the landscape, you won't be able to walk away without feeling some sense of wonder.
