Cities and Towns

Dozens of welcoming cities and towns offer one-of-a kind adventures and experiences in The Kentucky Wildlands. Quaint mountain villages and historic, picturesque Main Streets beckon with local cafes, coffee shops, bookstores and boutiques filled with unique gifts, finds and crafts. Shop for fresh, locally grown produce at a farmers market, sip a regional handcrafted brew, or attend a live performance at a restored theater, gallery or museum. Many of these scenic towns, nestled next to lakes, tucked among rolling hills and highland valleys, serve as gateways to large national recreation areas, national parks, forests, backcountry trails, scenic gorges, mountain peaks and many other natural wonders.
