The Largest Classic Car Show In Kentucky Is A Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience

Kentucky is a state that appreciates the classics, and of course, that includes cars. Home to many car-related attractions and events, the Bluegrass State seems to love the sound of an engine and a Sunday drive through the back roads. If you appreciate classic cars and love seeing many at once, then you must plan a trip to Somerset, Kentucky. Known as the “Car Cruise Capital of Kentucky,” this small town hosts Somernites Cruise multiple times a year. It’s an exciting and family-friendly event that is collectively the largest car show in Kentucky. A visit here is a unique experience and one that is a must for every car-loving Kentuckian.
