There Is An Entire Christmas Island In Kentucky And It’s Absolutely Delightful

Kentucky is a state that loves the water; this is well-known. From paddling in the Houseboat Capital of the World to exploring the state’s beautiful beaches and resplendent rivers, there’s no shortage of water-bound fun to be had in the Bluegrass State. But did you know that there’s an island in Kentucky? And not just any old island: a Christmas island. Each winter at Kentucky’s one and only island, there’s a holiday event that positively dazzles. Christmas Island at General Burnside State Park is a wholly unique, only-in-Kentucky attraction that absolutely belongs on your holiday bucket list.
