From spectacular natural beauty to exciting urban attractions, Kentucky is filled with history and culture. As one of the original frontiers of the United States, the Bluegrass State has a long and storied history filled with mythical figures, including Daniel Boone. The state's industries, including horse breeding and bourbon manufacturing, give the state a rich tapestry of events, activities, festivals, museums and more.
During the last weekend in September, the community celebrates being the home of the first Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant by providing southern fried chicken prepared on a 10 foot wide skillet. Guests also enjoy the carnival, crafts and other events.
