Beautiful scenery, country music and fried chicken is what Kentucky (KY) is best known for. According to ExistingCountries, the state takes its name from the Indian tribes that used to live there. Ken-Tah-Teh is the Indian word for ‘land of tomorrow’. The vast expanses of fields, hills, and caves are found throughout Kentucky. You can rent a car to travel from city to city while enjoying the beautiful nature around you. Frankfort is the capital, but there are also a few large cities that are definitely worth a visit, such as Louisville, Lexington, Georgetown and Owensboro. Frankfort is tucked away in the Kentucky River valley. It’s a real country town with a lot of friendly people. An hour away is great Louisville, which has several attractions. The town’s main attraction is without a doubt the horse races organized by the Churchill Downs. What you can also definitely visit is the Fourth Street Live. Here you can find all kinds of bars. Irish pubs, Bourbon bars and of course Country bars. It is easier to visit during the week by car, because during weekends you are not allowed to enter by car.
