Welcome to beautiful Jessamine County!


Whether you are here on a day trip whim, on the hunt for a weekend getaway, or looking to have a week-long adventure, we can help you hit all the high points during your visit.

Toast to your health and taste the flavor of Kentucky’s long-standing winemaking tradition. First Vineyard is the first commercial vineyard established in the United States and one of three award-winning vineyards in Jessamine County.  Or dine al fresco and pair your tapas and tacos with a locally distilled rum cocktail.
Experience the thrill of the swing at PGA’s Barbasol Championship golf tournament or play a round of 18 holes with your friends. Ramble the rustic wilds of the Jim Beam nature preserve or find solitude on the woodland trails of Asbury Seminary.
Take in the sweeping view of the Kentucky Palisades, best seen from the overlook of High Bridge—once the tallest railroad trestle in the United States. Make the journey over the waters of the Kentucky River just like Daniel Boone did on the Valley View Ferry, the river’s last and oldest ferry service.
Walk in the brave footsteps of African-American Civil War soldiers who gained their freedom on the grounds of Camp Nelson National Monument.
Earn a stamp on your Horse Country passport during a guided tour of Taylor Made Farm and get acquainted with the best of the best on four legspast, present, and future. 

Though you may come to Kentucky’s bluegrass country for all the usual reasons, you’ll leave with a whole other view.
