Things to Do

If you’ve ever jumped from the top of a houseboat into a sparkling, mountain-ringed lake, heard the bugle of an elk echoing through the highlands, walked the path of Daniel Boone or in the shoes of an early 20th-century coal miner, danced in the moonlight to the beat of a live bluegrass band, enjoyed a slice of apple stack cake, or savored a little blackberry moonshine, then you’ve spent time in The Kentucky Wildlands. From hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, climbing, fishing and boating in a place of spectacular unspoiled beauty to exploring historic Main Streets and hollows filled with unique museums and traditional mountain crafts, food and music, you’ll never run out of things to see and do. If it’s adventure you seek, or if you simply long for places yet unseen, you can spend a lifetime here and still not experience all The Kentucky Wildlands has to offer.
