Has the pandemic ruined your travel plans? Quarantine has made people scared to leave the state. I can totally understand that fear and it has made traveling hard. One alternative, is taking the opportunity to travel close to home.
As Kentuckians, we sometimes take for granted the beauty that surrounds us. With this in mind, Melissa and I have traveled around Kentucky to check out some of the Best Kentucky Travel Destinations close to home!
Best Kentucky Travel Destinations
Visit Natural Bridge – I may never get to see the 7 wonders of the world, but I did get to see the wonder of Kentucky! If you get the chance you really need to Visit Natural Bridge located in Slade, Kentucky. We are a hiking family and we had never been to this area.
Road Trip to Rabbit Hash – Step Back in a moment in time! The town is notable for its name, its string of canine mayors, and its historic general store which was largely destroyed by fire in 2016.
