The One Of A Kind Ferry Boat Adventure You Can Take In Kentucky

Back before bridges stretched over the great waterways of Kentucky, ferry boats would work to get travelers from one side of a river to the other. There aren’t many of these boats left in our country, but our state does happen to be home to a few. Located in the southwestern corner of Kentucky, the Dorena-Hickman Ferry is unique in that it carries you across the mighty Mississippi. This one-of-a-kind ferry boat adventure is an interesting excursion to take in this beautiful part of the Bluegrass State.
