As you go through the many different options that you have for traveling this year, if you haven’t been to Kentucky, add that to your list. You might be going on a vacation for a couple of months, traveling through the United States. As you reach the center, you need to spend a few days in Kentucky. A city in Kentucky that you may want to stay at is called Lexington. It has quite a few activities that are perfect for families. There are several that are recommended, and here are three that you should certainly go on if you are bringing yourself, your wife and your kids.
Kentucky Scenic Byway
After settling in, you can start your trip by going on the many different back ways and byways of Kentucky, following historic routes that are well known to those that live in the area. This may include going down US 62, looking at places like Stonewall and End, both of which are unique. The Boone Creek scenic byway, and also the Cumberland cultural heritage Highway, are going to take you past rivers and lakes that are beautiful. You can get out with your kids and play in the water, especially if it is during the summer time, and then you can move on to the next activity.
The Thoroughbred Center
If you are on a budget, this property owned by Keeneland is a place you should stop by. It has an amazing 1000 or more stalls for horses. There are a couple of training tracks, a starting gate, and all of the amenities that you could need to enjoy your day amidst all of these wonderful horses. Your kids will love watching them, and you can take tours, guided by people that understand horses and the property. Once you are done there, it’s time to head back into Lexington proper to enjoy fine dining and perhaps some time at Breakout Games that your kids will love.
The next couple days you could also go to The Red Mile, Keeneland, and many other destinations. Whether you want to see horse tracks, bowling alleys, or even go miniature golfing, these are all things that are available in Lexington. Although this is located in the center of the United States away from the ocean, and there are no landscapes like you somebody, Lexington is the perfect place for people that want to know more about the central United States and the origins of the people of Kentucky.
