My wife and I have an upcoming trip to Kentucky. Our goal is to take a look at Lexington/Frankfort, Covington/Cincinnati, and Louisville. We are spending a day and a half in each place and would like to know some things to do or places to stop and see. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Also are there any places to eat that you would highly recommend in each area, any can't miss spots? Lastly, we have one extra day that we plan on spending some where along lake Cumberland. Are there any restaurants you suggest or any places that we should stop and see? Thanks again for all your help and let me know if I can provide anymore information to help narrow down the list.

Default Here goes

Lexington check out the Kentucky Horse Park. Best shopping is I-75 at Man O War. Skip lake cumberland (it's down 40 feet due to dam repairs )and take a day trip to Berea College instead: trust me you won't regret it, off I-75 about 40 miles south of Lexington. You can thank me later. When you leave Lexington skip I-64 and drive 60 west through Versailles to Frankfort. Downtown Frankfort is very historic (don't miss the capitol overlook leaving downtown Frankfort on U.S. 60) Follow 60 into Louisville (great scenery and you come in on the best side of town) Louisville cant miss: Louisville Slugger Museum downtown, the Kentucky Derby Museum at Churchill Downs, Bardstown Road (lots of hippies and great restaurants), Speed art museum at U of L.,dinner on the river at Captains Quarters at sunset; best shopping; the twin malls on Shelbyville Rd at the Waterson xway, the Summitt, and Springhurst Center. Don't miss joe ley's antiques downtown. See web site

When in Lexington, you simply must dine at Joe Bologna's in the old synagogue on Maxwell at South Limestone. Great food, decent prices, and cool ambiance make this choice a no-brainer. Also good is DeSha's (dee-shays) on West Main near Broadway, next to the Horse and Barrel(I think?) pub. In Louisville (looeyvill), I'd recommend Bearno's Little Sicily, as well as the Irish Rover, if the latter is still in business.
