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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
