As travel restrictions begin to loosen up, we know travelers are ready to end their months of lockdown and do some exploring. We also understand the first adventure might be a domestic road trip. This blog series, ON THE ROAD with MANN TRAVELS was developed with that in mind. Please enjoy these ideas and itineraries designed to inspire you to visit the USA – from sea to shining sea!
Kentucky is famous and loved for many reasons: world class horse racing and the iconic Derby, historic steamboat travel on the Ohio River, hiking the gorgeous canyons of Red River Gorge – but, lets be honest, bourbon is a pretty big draw!
A few days’ road trip in the area of Louisville, Lexington and Bardstown gives visitors a chance to experience Kentucky’s culture and heritage, along with tapping into the world famous distilleries with generations of storied tradition. In order to taste the state’s most famous product, Mann Travels can arrange transportation that will escort you and your friends without worrying about the driving. You can savor every stop of your handcrafted bourbon adventure and visit 4 distilleries or 14!
And while the drinks may be the main attraction, there is plenty of great food to get excited about as well. An exceptional meal is always a great accompaniment to a fabulous cocktail. Kentucky meals are both traditional and cutting edge. So, whether you are looking for beer cheese and barbecue or farm-to-fork cuisine, you will find yourself salivating at the options.
While you are dining, make sure you take advantage of the soul of Kentucky – the music. It is, after all, the birthplace of bluegrass and the musical roots of the state extend throughout the many regions. Enjoy a front porch pickin’ party or a full blown festival – but make sure you get a chance to appreciate some of what makes Kentucky famous.
