Area Attractions

This area positively abounds with attractions. We are the Birthplace of Bourbon, so a great place to start your trek of the Bourbon Trail. Virtually all of downtown Paris, Kentucky is a 96-acre Historic District listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the town features a nine-member Antiques & Gallery District, a Walking Tour of historic buildings, the nationally accredited Wallis Arboretum, the award-winning Hopewell Museum, the oldest standing tavern (Duncan Tavern) in the state of Kentucky, a micro-brewery, a micro-distillery, more than ten downtown restaurants and a dozen boutiques for guaranteed friendly shopping.

We can suggest local spots where you can ride horses (sorry, not ours!), research your genealogy, visit celebrity racehorses, canoe, hike, fish, bicycle and lots more. If you’d like, we can provide custom tours of nearby Keeneland racecourse, local horse farms like Claiborne and Adena Springs, distilleries, historic sites dating back to the 1700’s (there are 25 in Bourbon County alone), wineries, antique shopping …or tours tailored to whatever your interest.

We’re a half hour from Lexington, an hour from the Natural Bridge, Red River Gorge and ziplining of Eastern Kentucky or the serenity of the Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill, and an hour and a half from either Louisville or Cincinnati – day trip possibilities abound!
