    Plan a Girlfriends Get-Away in Kentucky’s Bluegrass, Horses, Bourbon & Boone Region

    A girlfriend get-away in the Bluegrass, Horses, Bourbon & Boone Region may take more than just one weekend! There is fun and adventure in all fifteen areas that make up the Bluegrass Region. Begin with a tour to one of Lexington’s legendary horse farms then race over to Winchester to tour the factory where Kentucky’s most beloved soft drink the Ale 8 is made. Drive alongside the Kentucky River to Richmond to have lunch at Halls on the River. Here you can experience deep fried banana peppers. Once you are fueled and ready to go again, stop by Berea – the Folk Arts and Crafts Capital for shopping at galleries with hand-made items such as a cutting board or a woven throw made by Berea College Students. Ready for dessert, stop by the Bluebird Café in Stanford. Head over to Danville/Perryville for a visit at The Great American Dollhouse Museum that showcases over 200 dollhouses, miniature buildings, and room boxes, furnished in remarkable detail. Spend the night in Ky’s oldest city, Harrodsburg at the Beaumont Inn. In 2019, The Beaumont Inn will celebrate it’s 100th year and is an official stop on the KY Bourbon Trail. After a good night’s rest, head to the Nicholasville/Wilmore area to sample rich Kentucky wine at Chrisman Mills or walk the grounds of First Vineyard, the first commercialized vineyard in the United States. Come to the Versailles/Midway area to tour The Kentucky Castle. This castle will make any girl feel like a princess. There are many fantastic lunch choices in this area such as Wallace Station housed in an historic building built at the turn of the 20th Century. When visiting our state capital in Frankfort, stop for a group photo at the large floral clock. This beautiful piece was built with some of the first proceeds of the Ky State Sales tax! Tour on to Lawrenceburg to see two of Ky’s premiere distilleries, Wild Turkey and Four Roses. On over to Georgetown to see one of the South’s finest Greek Revival-style mansions, Ward Hall. Relax and enjoy a nice dinner in Paris at Trackside at the Depot and off to Carlisle for the night at the Historic Forest Retreat, which is considered one of Ky’s best-preserved federal design homes. This home was built by tenth governor of KY Thomas Metcalfe in 1814 and home to the 1954 Kentucky Derby Winner Determine. Explore Cynthiana at the Quiet Trails Nature Preserve.
