Ky. is one of the most beautiful states that anyone would want to travel around in and has so much to offer. I was born on a mountain side waaaay out yonder in the woods in Claiborne County TN near the KY line (Cumberland Gap area ) and spent a lot of time in KY as a youngster. I own property in KY and have a lot of family there and visit several times a year.

I lived in KY for several years and traveled around the state a great deal, besides good food, good bourbon, fast horses and wild women Ky has a great deal to offer the nature lovers like myself. I have a son and daughter that live in Lexington and we built two log cabins on my property up there for weekend get aways. Sometimes during the summer my wife and I go up and stay 4-5 days at the cabins.

As for me it just don't get any better than being outdoors enjoying nature. For the new comers to KY that enjoy nature here are just a few of many things to do in KY, I have been to all these places over the years and enjoyed every minute of it. Did I mention that I done went and fetched myself one of them purdy little KY gals and married her 26 years ago.

Great post! I am glad to hear someone else who is not from KY, tell of how much they like the state, why and what they appreiciate about it. That is neat that you bought property in Lexington! What a beautiful and charming city. That is also neat that you married a Kentucky Southern Belle. Thank you for sharing your life with us Kentuckians and tell'in us about your life and what you appreciate about the great state of ours! I must say, that TN is a beautiful and wonderful state that has so much to offer. You are truly blessed to have grown up there! I personally love visiting Tennessee! Take care and again, I loved great post!

How funny. A Southern-themed magazine featuring an article on a "yankee-fied" locale. I don't care if it is in Kentucky, and I even like NKY, but come on... There's nothing Southern, period, about Kentucky north of Dry Ridge.

Of course, I've seen St. Louis featured once in SL, so this isn't the first time a nothing-Southern-about-it locale has been featured in the magazine.

JCM that wasn't very nice. Just because you don't think it it Southern doesn't mean that there's others who disagree. Heck, there are some who will argue about St Louis too. If you don't like something, you don't have to say it. Don't rain on someone else's parade.
