Itineraries

Everything’s just a hop, skip and a jump from Shelby County

Step into a Saddlebred horse training arena and chat with a trainer. Tour a new family-owned distillery making small-batch spirits as well as craft bourbon from heirloom corn. Trundle to the pumpkin patch on a hayride. Take in a theatre production. Sample the grape at several wineries. Savor one-of-a-kind dining experiences.

And shop, shop and shop some more at galleries, country stores, home interior shops and the only outlet mall in Kentucky.
