Plan Your Visit

A slice of Kentucky

ShelbyKY is Your Bourbon Destination and the American Saddlebred Capital of the World. You’ll find authentic Kentucky: a pioneering spirit, rural character, and a small-town feel.

There's a small-town charm in Shelbyville, Simpsonville, and Shelby County. Coupled with grand-scale shopping, rolling pastureland, and delicious dining, there's plenty to do. Go antiquing. Play golf. Visit the wineries. Dine at locally owned eateries – including one created by Colonel Sanders for his wife. Catch a play. Attend a festival. And do what you can only do in Shelby County: Tour an American Saddlebred Horse Farm in the place where the breed began.
