These 7 Charming Waterfront Towns In Kentucky Are Perfect For A Day Trip

Kentucky has many beautiful bodies of water—from majestic lakes to winding rivers—which means many of our cities and towns are close to the adventure the water provides. But there are a few towns in the Bluegrass State that are nestled right along the banks of a lake, river or stream, making them the perfect spot for a charming day trip.
