I need to go to Wickliffe on business and I need to figure out what my options are as far as surrounding "big" airports.

You can fly into Memphis and take a commuter to Paducah which would put you around 50 or so miles from Wickliffe or fly to Nashville and drive it, which would be around 4 hours or so.

Thank-You so much. I wonder what the drive is from Memphis?

I just looked on Google maps. Your "big" airports would be St. Louis, Memphis or Nashville...none of which are that close. You might check what flies into Paducah.

You are about 3 hours from Memphis International, I used to drive US 51 from I-24 to Memphis several times a year. Good 4 lane road. Don't take I-55 up the Arkansas side...

I'd fly to Nashville and take I 24 to Paducah and cut over. It shouldn't be more than 2.5- 3 hours. Memphis is pretty comparable. St. Louis is further away- I'd avoid it.

If you're actually going to fly to Nashville and drive the rest of the way, take I-24 to the Purchase Parkway. When you get to Mayfield, I don't know the exit number, but take the Wickliffe exit, Ky. 121. Takes you right to downtown. Instead of all that driving, I'd get a flight to Paducah and take U.S. 60 right to Wickliffe, about 30 miles. Ijust googled the mileage from Mayfield to Wickliffe and they are as crazy as Mapquest! They have you going all the way on Ky. 80 to U.S. 51, through Fancy Farm and Arlington!

According to Mapquest.com:

From Nashville: 2 hours 54 minutes
From Memphis: 2 hours 54 minutes
From St. Louis: 2 hours 59 minutes

I'd just go with the cheapest ticket.
