This Little Known Natural Oasis Is Hiding In Kentucky… And You’re Going To Love It

The sights and sounds of the Bluegrass State are vast, especially when it comes to history and nature. Some fantastic spots even combine Mother Nature’s beauty with history. We are blessed with spots like Cumberland Falls, Red River Gorge, Natural Arch State Park, all of which get an abundance of tourism – local and otherwise. However, an equally amazing, but often less talked about destination is the beautiful, and unique Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. It could easily be considered a natural oasis in Kentucky.

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:
