HOW TO USE THE TRAVEL GUIDE

The Kentucky Travel Guide is divided into regions, which are further divided into areas, then gateways and metros. There are 5 Regions, (including Southern Indiana) with 11 Areas. These Areas have 43 key Gateway Cities. The Gateway Cities encompass a number of smaller Metros areas.

The Guide is designed to help you find interesting things to do, places to eat or stay, and to plan a trip seamlessly following the gateways around Kentucky and Southern Indiana.

There are many maps to help you distinguish which area you are viewing including our new Distillery & Winery maps with a complete listing of the currently open distillery and wineries within Kentucky. These maps are not meant to help with directions, but to simply serve as a location guide. We have added unique QR scan codes that allow you to access content, get directions and learn more about our featured partners. ATTRACTION NOTES Listings were verified and believed to be accurate at press time. It’s recommended to contact the destination prior to visiting to determine the level of access and for the most up-to-date information, or visit www.kytravel.com to view our sponsor partners pages for current events and information. IMPAIRED ACCESS It's recommended to contact the attraction prior to visiting to determine the level of access.

TRAFFIC UPDATES For traffic conditions including closures, construction & detours or other traffic-related information throughout Kentucky, visit GoKY.ky.gov. HISTORICAL MARKERS More than 2,000 historical markers along Kentucky roads denote a site, organization, event or person considered to be of historical significance. Typically cast metal atop a pole, they feature the official seal of the Commonwealth and a description of the significance on both sides relating the story. ACRONYM KEY KDFWR Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources KDF Kentucky Division of Forestry KDP Kentucky Department of Parks NRHP National Register of Historic Places USACE US Army Corps of Engineers

Switzer Covered Bridge, circa 1855

This bridge crosses over North Elkhorn Creek in Switzer. It was initially built as a 120’ Howe truss design in 1855, but was knocked off its foundation in 1997 and rebuilt close to the original design with a few modern engineering improvements..

Dover Covered Bridge, circa 1835

KY 3113 crosses Lees Creek via the Dover Bridge in Mason Counties northwest side. It was built in 1835, is around 61’ long, and is one of the oldest preserved covered bridges in Kentucky. The double set of queen post trusses on each side are the original design, but iron beams were installed later for support due to weight limitations.

Walcott Bridge circa 1880

This 74’ king and queen post truss designed bridge is now a preserved historic site that cannot be used. Initially it carried what is now known as KY 1159 over Locust Creek

The Bennetts Mill Bridge was built over Tygarts Creek in 1855 in the northern part of Greenup County. It is a Wheeler Truss bridge off KY 7, around 8 miles south of South Shore. It is the only preserved example of its kind in the state.

At southern Greenup County in Oldtown, this 1880s double post and brace bridge crosses over the Little Sandy River. It is 187’ long and remains preserved as a part of that time in history.
