Kentucky has a moderate climate with warm, humid conditions. Summers are warm with temperatures reaching the mid-80s (F), and winters mildly cold with temperatures in 30s and 40s.

Peak Season:

With its mild climate, Kentucky has visitors year round, although summer (May to September) is the peak season.

Spring means the Kentucky Derby, so budget-conscious travelers will have a hard time finding cheap Kentucky flights and accommodations. The race is held the first Saturday in May, and there are two weeks of festivals and entertainment before the race.

Fall is also popular, particularly in the Kentucky Highlands during the Fall Festivals.

Off Season:

Spring is a bit slower in Kentucky, as long as you stay away from Louisville. Keep in mind, though, that Churchill Downs is open other times of the year when it is not nearly as crowded.

What is good to know if travelling to Kentucky?

  • Kentucky is the home of bourbon, and many of the distilleries are open for visiting (and for some tasting as well…) Travel the “Bourbon Trail”, in the hills around Lexington, and you can see where 95 percent of the world’s bourbon comes from. Famous names include Wild Turkey, Maker’s Mark and Buffalo Trace.
  • The appropriately named Mammoth Cave is the world’s longest cave system. You can visit the surrounding park area for free, but there is a charge for a tour of the caves. It’s well worth taking a guide (rather than completing a self-guided tour) – the cost is a dollar more and you’ll find out all sorts of fascinating information along the way.
  • Frankfort is the capital of the state and houses many attractions, such as the Kentucky State Capitol and the Zeigler House. Also worth a visit is Daniel Boone’s grave, in the city’s cemetery. As well as seeing the grave itself, the view from the spot – overlooking the river and the Capitol – is stunning.
  • Thomas Edison lived in Louisville on Washington Street. His house is now the site of a museum in his honor.
  • Sanders’ Café in Corbin is the birthplace of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Colonel Sanders operated a gas station here in the 1930s and served his fried chicken to passing travelers, from his own kitchen table. Today, the restaurant is still operating, and an attached museum tells you all you could ever want to know about the food.
  • If you’re interested in the state’s thoroughbred horses, visit the Kentucky Horse Park Home or the Thoroughbred Center, both in Lexington in the middle of the Bluegrass area.
