Somerset Kentucky

Experience Kentucky’s authentic rural charm in Somerset, nestled on the shores of Lake Cumberland, one of the largest lakes in the eastern United States. Here you’ll find homespun American traditions in the form of freshly picked apples and fried apple pies, handcrafted bourbon, locally owned vineyards, breweries, bistros and shops, and car cruise events. Known as the Car Cruise Capital of Kentucky for its Somernites Cruise, Somerset is filled with historic landmarks, thrilling backcountry rides and outdoor adventures.

Explore the historic downtown, pop into Amon’s Sugar Shack (featured in Southern Living) for a hot glazed donut, sip a local downtown brew, and venture out to Haney’s famous Appledale Farm for seasonal apple picking and warm apple pies. Investigate “mountain mysteries,” such as Bigfoot, at the International Paranormal Research Center. Walk the historic grounds of the Battle of Mill Springs (Kentucky’s second most devastating Civil War battle). Hike, boat, fish, swim, camp or settle into a cabin along Lake Cumberland. Head back to Somerset for annual town events such as the Kentucky Bourbon Moonlight Festival and the Zombie Walk Parade.
