The Scenic Kentucky Road That Takes You Along America’s Largest River
You don’t have to go far in Kentucky before you reach some sort of body of water. Our beautiful state is filled with rivers, lakes, creeks, and waterfalls, and they are the source of much excitement in the Bluegrass State. One thing that is often forgotten about Kentucky is that a stretch of our western border is formed by the Mississippi River. It’s a gorgeous area of our state and you can even take a drive along the Kentucky Great River Road to experience it for yourself.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
