Named for Kentucky's first governor Isaac Shelby, Shelby County is Jefferson County's eastern neighborhood. ShelbyKY Tourism President/CEO Chenelle McGee sets the scene: "Since Squire Boon and the pioneer days, Shelby County has been a rural complement to the Louisville area as a transportation corridor, waystation, and a place for travelers to rest. The lush landscape with scenic rolling drives past Saddlebred farms adds to the authentic Kentucky narrative we all know and love."

According to Chenelle McGee, "Shelby County provides locals and visitors the charm of small-town living with high-class amenities," true to its motto of "Good Land, Good Living, Good People." The area's contributions to the bourbon industry include Jeptha Creed Distillery, owned and operated by Master Distiller Joyce Nethery, and Bulleit Distilling Company's "state-of-the-art and tasting experience." Shelby County is also home to the only designer outlet mall in Kentucky, The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass. Families love the horse trail rides and tours and "you-pick" farms.
