“Heaven must be a Kentucky kind of place.” Daniel Boone, the Bluegrass State’s favorite founding father, said this, and we wholeheartedly agree. While the state is home to more wonders than we could possibly list, today we’re celebrating one of Kentucky’s crown jewels: Red River Gorge. Located within Daniel Boone National Forest, Red River Gorge is the Holy Grail of outdoor recreation and adventure; the ultimate Kentucky day trip and bucket-list-worthy adventure. Allow us to wax poetic on this one-of-a-kind place, a Kentucky kind of place that’s pure heaven on earth.

Heaven really is a Kentucky kind of place. We adore you, Red River Gorge!
