Sink Your Toes In The Sand At The Longest Beach In Kentucky
We love uncovering unique destinations and things to do around Kentucky that many don’t even realize can be found in our state. A perfect example is that most people don’t think of the Bluegrass State as a place with any beaches, however, we actually offer some great ones (and we previously featured them here). Sure, it’s not the ocean, but that doesn’t mean you can’t sink your toes in a sandy shore in Kentucky. One place where you can do just that is found in an unexpected spot in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. Carr Creek State Park not only offers a lovely beach and swimming area, but it’s also the longest beach in the Kentucky State Park system and is one you’ll want to check out soon.
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/
