Romantic Destinations in Kentucky

The Bluegrass State, also known as the great state of Kentucky, is one of the south's most beautiful areas. The gorgeous mountain ranges, many forests and lakes make this state a perfect spot for couples who enjoy outdoor activities. If you love horses, Kentucky is an ideal spot as well. Churchill Downs, home to the Kentucky Derby, is a great spot to visit and experience even outside of Derby season. Of course, the intimate nature of the many historical spots (over two dozen) as well as important places like the Cumberland Gap make romantic destinations in Kentucky very special events.

The historical sites located within the state of Kentucky include such diverse spots as the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Site and the Belle of Louisville, an authentic steamboat. The Cumberland Gap was discovered by the explorer Dr. Thomas Walker, and after it was found in 1750 hundreds of thousands of people were able to make their way through this easier route past the mountains. Couples who enjoy adventure can follow the same path these original settlers took - all 20,200 acres of it in the Cumberland Gap National Park.

One beautiful spot for romantic destinations in Kentucky is the Honeymoon Mansion Bed and Breakfast and Wedding Chapel, found in New Albany, Kentucky. Not just for couples looking to get married (although that is their specialty here at the Honeymoon Mansion), this ornate Victorian mansion is a great place for a romantic stay. It is on the National Register of Historic Places, and was built all the way back in 1850 - it survived through the Civil War! Located on "mansion row" in New Albany, the Honeymoon Mansion Bed and Breakfast is in good, perfectly kept company.

The rooms here at the Honeymoon Mansion are all restored to their Antebellum glory, with each of the rooms being named after a famous individual of the times. The luxurious Abraham Lincoln suite, for example, offers a couple looking for romance beautiful scarlet tapestries, as well as a queen size cherry wood bed and a marble Jacuzzi. For breakfast, all guests enjoy an all-you-can-eat sit down meal, with southern fare such as biscuits and gravy, home fries and different kinds of eggs. This sumptuous breakfast is served each morning in the Honeymoon Mansion's Breakfast Room.

If you and your loved one are in the mood for one of the romantic destinations in Kentucky, New Albany is a great town to fill your needs. With the many historic buildings and sites, as well as the beauty of the local inns and bed and breakfasts, you will definitely find what you are looking for.
