Default Frankfort, Kentucky

Frankfort, the capitol of Kentucky, is only 30 mi. from Lexington. A hilly site on the Kentucky River and I'm given to believe a scenic little town. Might be some nice drives around there - even if just on your way in or way out.

I'm (hopefully) going through there on a trip to Nashville, Cincinnati & Indy. planned for August.

There's pletnty of scenic drives. All you really need to do is just turn your GPS off for a while and take a few random turns, and you'll almost certainly end up in some pretty places. The drive to High Bridge is one I do every summer in my MGB for a nice scenic drive. Driving to the Woodford Reserve Distillary will also produce another very scenic drive. The southern part of Woodford County makes some good scenic drives (I'm a little partial, I guess, since I have lived in Woodford County all my life... )

I can start a list of good places to visit if someone knows how to put these in a map.

Bourbon distillaries:
1) Woodford Reserve
2) Maker's Mark
3) Wild Turkey
4) Jim Bean
5) Buffalo Trace

Cars:
1) Corvette Factory (Bowling Green, Ky)

Horses:
1) KY Horse Park
2) Keeneland
3) Churchill Downs
4) Old Friends

Nature/Historic:
1) Natural Bridge
2) High Bridge
3) Shaker Village
4) Daniel Boon National Forest
5) Mammouth Cave
6) Carter Caves
7) Lake Cumberland
8) Cumberland Valley
9) Buckley Wildlife (local hiking place)


That's all I can think of for now, but will have to add more if I can think of anything later. Maybe we should start a new thread for this?

(If anyone wants to come by our family farm, you're more than welcome. Also have a farm shop with an outdoor air lift, A-frame, and lots of other tools.)

I can work on compiling that list into Google Maps. I should have something up tomorrow that we can work from. Thanks for the suggestions!

This thread is the perfect forum for discussions such things as local attractions and fun things to do.

Unfortunately I don't know much about the area, so beyond posting the basics, I will need some hints and suggestions from people more familiar with the area.
