Bluegrass Bucket List


The Bluegrass State is known for its two historic industries, horses and bourbon. We have been racing horses in Kentucky since the late 1700s and even today the top horses in the industry are bred and raised here. One of Kentucky’s historic and beautiful horse farms will be a bucket list stop. The growth of the bourbon industry in the state is hitting heights rarely seen in the 240 years of distilling in Kentucky. We will visit one of these historic distilleries and enjoy a tour and tasting. Our next industry that few people know about outside the state is wine. Kentucky was the home of the first commercial vineyard in U.S. history and in the late 1800s, it was the third largest wine producing state in the country. Today, there is a renewed interest in wine production in the state. We currently have over 70 commercial vineyards across the commonwealth. We will enjoy a tasting as we take in the beautiful scenery of the Bluegrass region. Our newest industry that is booming is our craft brewery scene. Lexington and central Kentucky currently have their own Brewgrass Trail. We will enjoy a flight at one of these locally owned breweries. So come and fill your bucket with the best that Kentucky has to offer.


Pickup will be at the Lexington Visitors Center.


Price: $120 –Includes all tours, tastings and flights along with a Kentucky Proud lunch. Water and snacks will be provided.

Escape the stress and mania of modern Christmas by visiting the Victorian era. We take a step back in time to the bucolic mid-1800s. Let us guide you back in time my vising two of central Kentucky’s most beautiful mansions, Ward Hall and White Hall. We will experience how they each celebrated Christmas. We will see how the Wards and Clays experienced Christmas and enjoy this simpler time when fresh cut pine boughs glowed in the candle light and pine cones and holly berries graced the drawing room. So, deck the halls and ride in our sleigh as we enjoy the holiday and tour these two historical homes. Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.


Tours will be approximately 4 hrs long.
