My Old Kentucky Home
Follow your senses to Kentucky and the heart of bluegrass country.

Catch glimpses of thoroughbreds at more than 450 horse farms around Lexington.

Hear the foghorns echo off the banks of the Ohio River on misty spring nights.

Sip a mint julep to join in a tradition almost as old as the Kentucky Derby itself—first run in 1875 at Louisville’s Churchill Downs.

Feel the rough wood of the covered bridges, more than a century old, which still dot northern Kentucky.

Savor the sweet aroma of Kentucky bourbon at one of the area’s famous distilleries.

Road Rules
If you’re from a country other than the United States and plan to operate a motor vehicle in Kentucky, you will need a valid driver’s license from your home country and an international driver’s license. The vehicle’s registration and proof of insurance must be in the vehicle at all times.
