Amazing Traveling Adventures – Kentucky

Hello and welcome to my blog post: Amazing Travel Adventures – Kentucky. This destination travel guide shares Kentucky’s finest things to do and see. Read on to explore Daniel Boone National Forest, Cumberland Falls State Park and so much more. There is more than racing, bourbon and bluegrass in the state of Kentucky, but I am rather partial to their bourbon!


Daniel Boone National Forest spreads across 21 counties of southern and eastern Kentucky. The forest covers over 700,000 acres of land and has more than 600 miles of trails for backpacking, biking and hiking. Their website states they have over 100 developed recreation sites include campgrounds, picnic areas and boat ramps. Sounds like they have something for everyone.

Waverly Hills Sanatorium

The Waverly Hills Sanatorium, that opened its doors in 1926, was once dedicated to healing patients suffering from tuberculosis. Tuberculosis was very contagious and incurable (until 1943) disease that swept through the country claiming many victims. The number of cases, patients lowered until there wasn’t a need for the sanatorium. It was finally abandoned and is now under the care of The Waverly Hills Historical Society. It has become known as one of “the most haunted places on earth”. The WHHS now runs tours and investigations sharing education and history and something that goes bump in the night.
