This Road Trip To Kentucky’s Most Majestic Castles Is Like Something From A Fairytale
When you think of castles, your mind probably immediately goes to England or France. However, there actually are a handful of castles hiding in Kentucky. While they may not be as ancient or menacing as Edinburgh Castle or the Tower of London, they’re still pretty cool, and worth seeing with your own eyes. We created this road trip so you can do just that. While you can tour some of them, others you will have to admire from the outside.
Below is a photo of the map of the route. It will take about five hours, and we recommend doing the bulk of the trip in one day, and then staying over night at Castle Post before traveling the longest and final leg of the journey the next day. However, if you wish to adjust the map to make it more convenient for you, click here.

I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. I have lived elsewhere twice, but keep coming back. I'm a video editor and freelance writer who enjoys watching people wearing University of Louisville uniforms excel at sports, scaling the faces of large rocks, and hanging out with my border collie/laborador/cattle dog mutt thingy that I have.
