Kentucky has much to offer to visitors but what people think first is probably 'The Kentucky Derby', horses, and the 3 "B's":
bluegrass, bourbon, and basketball.
Everyone knows the state's reputation as a breeding ground for the world's best thoroughbreds,
both the four-legged kind that race down the backstretch, and the
two-legged kind that race up and down the basketball courts. Kentucky is also known as the
world's premier bourbon producer (a fact you can discover by traveling the Bourbon Trail), and
a picturesque paradise where bluegrass really does dot the landscape (even if it is just for a few weeks every spring.)
But what you may not know is that Kentucky is home to the deepest gorge east of the Mississippi River
(the Grand Canyon of the South at Breaks Interstate Park on the Virginia border),
the longest cave system in the world (Mammoth Cave with its 360 miles of explored underground passageways),
more water than the coast of Florida (in the Western Waterways with the 3,300-mile combined shoreline
of Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake), and the only moonbow in the Western Hemisphere (at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park.)
