20 Ways Kentucky Is America’s Black Sheep And We Love It That Way

Despite what the rest of the country may think, Kentucky is a unique and beautiful place with a culture of its own. We might do and say things a little differently than folks from other states, but that’s what makes living here so awesome. If you have any friends or family members from out of state coming in town this holiday season, show them this list of why we’re proud to be America’s black sheep.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

If you’re a Kentuckian who has done some traveling, you’ve undoubtedly heard someone ask “You’re from Kentucky? Is there even anything fun to do there? Do wear shoes? Do you ride a horse to work? Have you met Colonel Sanders?” Instead of rolling your eyes or getting defensive, just continue to give them that typical Southern hospitality, because after all, they’re the poor folks who are missing out on all the greatness of being a Kentuckian.
