Danville, Kentucky: Bourbon Distilleries and Horse Farms in Kentucky's Bluegrass Country
Danville—located less than an hour south of Lexington—is nicknamed "The Birthplace of the Bluegrass" for its blue-green hillsides and because it served as the first state capitol of the Commonwealth. Right here in the heart of Kentucky's Bluegrass Country are numerous horse farms and centuries-old distilleries. Along the nearby Kentucky Bourbon Trail, you can sample chocolate-bourbon balls and tour the headquarters of Makers' Mark, Jim Beam, and many more. The Farm also offers an optional guided excursion on the bourbon trail to resort guests. Bicycle and bus tours are popular.
Downtown Danville feels like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting with pastel-painted storefronts, boutiques, cafés, and a wine shop. One log building here was the first post office west of the Allegheny Mountains in 1792. Main Street is dotted with art galleries and mom-and-pop bakeries that have been around for more than a century.
It's worth it to take a trip north to Lexington, the second-largest city in Kentucky. The unofficial horse capital of the world, Lexington boasts world-famous thoroughbred farms and racetracks, including the Kentucky Horse Park. The International Museum of the Horse pays homage to these elegant creatures with exhibits that feature saddles from early American farm horses and Mr. Ed's house slippers.
