Kentucky Places

Kentucky is a land with diverse environments and abundant resources, including the world's longest cave system, Mammoth Cave National Park; the greatest length of navigable waterways and streams in the contiguous United States; and the two largest man-made lakes east of the Mississippi River. It is also home to the largest free-ranging elk herd east of Montana, and the nation's most productive coalfield.

For visitors, Kentucky is famous for horse racing, bourbon distilleries, bluegrass music, and college basketball. Great places to visit include the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, the Red River Gorge Geological Area, part of the Daniel Boone National Forest; Land Between the Lakes, a National Recreation Area managed by the United States Forest Service, and much more.
