Summertime in Kentucky means the temperatures and humidity can soar, which means you need to have a place to cool off when you still want to be outside.

Some Kentucky State Parks, in particular, offer these relaxing destinations and a few of them are now open. Plan a visit to one of these 5 pristine beaches in Kentucky for a beautiful and memorable summer outing.
