Kentucky- Where to Explore!

50 UNITED STATES

Kentucky’s beauty took me my surprise. I wasn’t really sure what to expect before heading here and I was happily blown away. There is a ton of stuff to do in Kentucky and that’s everywhere from Louisville to Lexington.

Mammoth Cave National Park

Mammoth Cave National Park is a park that takes you inside of a cave. The tours are guided only and this way you are really able to understand the geology of the caves and the formations inside of it. It was amazing to be able to walk through a little bit of mother nature. It was great to learn about some of the history as well and trying to imagine yourself back in in time when a cave was pitch dark and you were trying to explore and what that would have been like. Definitely worth the trip if you head to Kentucky. One of the best caves in the United States which you can explore.

Abraham Lincoln’s Birthplace

Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12th 1809 in Hodgenville Kentucky. The house that you can visit is not the original but was constructed as if it were a house from that time. What was authentic was the land where the house was, the well they used and then the original Lincoln Memorial. The memorial was finished being built in 1911 and was the original Lincoln Memorial before the one in Washington DC was built.

Mohammed Ali Center

Mohammed Ali was from Louisville so it only made sense that they have a center in his honor. You will see how much he has accomplished in his lifetime. Not just for being one of the best boxers who have ever lived but for what he stood for and what he fought for. He refused to go to the service and be sent to Vietnam during the war since he didn’t feel like he should fight for a country which doesn’t fight for him. He has won a humanitarian award for all the good that he has done. He was a man who fought for what he wanted and decided to use his fame for good. He was truly a legend in every which way possible.

Louisville Slugger Museum

If you are a baseball/softball player you have heard or saw a Louisville bat in your lifetime. The Slugger Museum is also the warehouse where the bats are made. You will be able to take a tour to see how they are made from the first step to the finalized stages. You will even get to hold a bat used by Babe Ruth! If you are a baseball fan head over here as it’s a one of a kind opportunity.

Red River Gorge

It was pouring rain when I wanted to head to the Red River Gorge to see what this epic climbing place was like. I was the only car in the park as I drove through slowly as my mouther dropped with awe of the beauty and all the crags. I can not wait to come back here when it’s climbing season and see how this place comes alive.

Malone’s

Is a well known steak restaurant in Lexington Kentucky. I decided to come by for lunch when it was pouring. I think this may have been the best steak salad that I have ever had in my life. Not only was it huge and filling the quality was out of this world. The woman who was my waitress was lovely and made me feel very comfortbale even though i was alone. I felt like she was a friend and not my server. Everything about this place is high class so if you are in Lexington make a stop at Malone’s.
