From the canyons of Red River Gorge to the shores of Land Between the Lakes, the mountains of Appalachia to small towns and big cities of the Bluegrass, there’s no state more wholly, wonderfully unique than Kentucky. Straddling the Kentucky-Tennessee border, the town of Middlesboro is quite literally an outlier; it’s betwixt and between two Southern states with a unique identity and culture all its own.

Have you visited this unique Kentucky town before? There really is no place like Middlesboro, Kentucky! But then again, there’s no place like home in Kentucky.
