The Scenic Kentucky Back Road You Simply Must Drive This Summer
We often joke in Kentucky that locals will go out of their way to take the back roads, but in a beautiful state like ours, why would you not? Summer is a great time to hop in your car and take the scenic route around the Bluegrass State, checking out hole-in-the-wall stops and picturesque countryside. If this sounds like an ideal summer day, and you’re anywhere near Lexington, then turn your wheel toward Pisgah Pike, in the heart of horse country. This scenic back road is a great drive anytime of year, but you simply must give it a try in the summer.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Pisgah Pike and this area of Kentucky is truly magical and should be experienced during every season, including summer. Have you taken this scenic drive? Where else do you enjoy driving in Kentucky? Let us know in the comments!
