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.

  • SUMMER VACATION Clear Creek Park and Lake Shelby, a tree-lined idyll for fishing, boating, camping, picnicking, hiking and more. Pack your swimsuit, fishing poles, golf clubs, binoculars, hiking shoes and tent and head to Shelbyville’s busiest and most established park....
