Western KY is Land Between the Lakes national recreation area.
If you are a fisherman or hiker or just like hanging out by the water
this is a beautiful area.
Corps of engineers has a nice camp ground at the north end.
If you are motorcycle riders or bike riders there is also much to do and
see. Ride the trace (road that runs north and south) in your car
or on your motorcycle. There are several miles of paved bike path
again mostly on the north end.
Patti's 1880 Settlement in Grand Rivers Patti's 1880s Restaurant Grand Rivers Kentucky
has a beautiful outside walking
garden and the world famous 2" pork chop inside. The deserts are out
of this world. There are fotos of presidents on the walls who've visited.
A 2 block walk west from Patti's takes you to the marina on Kentucky
Lake. Many sail boats and awesome sunsets give this area a feel much
like Key West in the evening. I believe there is a tour boat on the lakes
also. Check in Grand Rivers for that.
There are 3 KY state parks on the lakes. 2 are resort parks.
Also Pennyrile Forest State resort park Pennyrile state park
in the area.
Mammoth cave NP is awesome but it's more south central KY.
