Also called the Blue Grass State, Kentucky has much to offer and you can see it all when you rent a car.
Cities of Kentucky
Kentucky plays host to Cincinnati Airport. However the city of Cincinnati is actually in the state of Ohio. Take a trip across the border and visit the Newport Aquarium. This houses over 7,000 aquatic specimens under 200ft of see-through tunnels and a Penguin Palooza exhibit.
If you fly into Louisville Airport you’ll be in the city centre in no time. Visit the Muhammad Ali Centre and explore the museum and education centre; an inspiring experience for everyone.
While in Louisville, you may be able to catch a horse race such as the annual Kentucky Derby Race. The Kentucky Horse Park near Lexington is a working horse farm and educational theme park opened in the 70’s which is also worthy of a visit.
